One thing I'd change on this winter bike is the bottom bracket. Currently, a UN55 does it's job well when the temperatures are above -5c yet progressively becomes stiffer when the mercury plunges further. Given the chance I think I'll swap it out for a traditional 3 piece bottom bracket so I can pack it with MAG1 grease (like the hubs). The UN55 might have removable seals enabling a repack. We'll see what happens. But my recommendation would be a 3 piece on an older steel frame winter bike like this.

p.s. got a small amount of frost-nip on the schnazz the other day for the first time ever.
