I too had a Motobecane beater for one of Chicago's winters, beat it to hell and then got a Raleigh Grand Prix beater. I hope you have fenders on it and LIGHTS, I see too many cyclist around town at night with either dim lights or no lights at all.

Me too! Iím definitely rocking bright lights even when itís just dim out. I have front and rear cargo racks that act as good fenders. It sucks not being able to bring the nice bike out into the world. But thatís what beaters are for I guess.
