I admit a fixie with slicks is counter-intuitive, but it really is doable. Even on packed snow it often handles better than my studded MTB. Conditions really do vary day to day, even hour to hour.

Here in Minnesota, the only winter constant is cold. Road conditions vary a lot. Studs are useful after a snow when everything gets packed down and turned to ice and when there's a lot of melting and...

Ramzilla, I think you might be right. It probably was upgraded in the late 80's. I just can't find much info on the Diamond Tourer. The only Kabuki catalog available online is from 1982 and it's not...

Ok I'm sorry I said I'm almost sorry winter was ending. Here in Minnesota, it's April 6 and the wind is howling out of the north like the middle of January. It was 12 degrees this morning with a...

Sure, I'm OK being upside down with it. But I have no idea whether I'd be trying to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear or if this bike really deserves a full restoration.

I bought a State Bicycle Wulf a couple months ago and I love it. It's heavy, but it's durable and easy to maintain and its wheels cut through snow and ice like butter and have survived some monstrous...
