Arctic wheels

Hello from Yellowknife, Canada. My name is Colin, and I've been riding all my life. Just on the road though. Only to get where I was going - nothing competitive.

Until recently, I rode a Specialized "Hardrock" from the 90s that I got used. Unfortunately, I left it outside when I went out of town for 6 weeks last winter, and it was under 10 feet of snow when I got back. Come spring the bike was full of water, all rusted inside and seized up. My shame knows no bounds.

Anyway, I bought a Raleigh Matterhorn from Canadian Tire as a stop-gap until I can afford something better, and I hope it hold together throughout the summer. That's it.
