Great ride!

If not just a bit nippy:

When I rode across, I almost slipped off this bridge!

This one was an SS, Giant Yukon. Narrow rims but similar tires to the previous one:

It also became my first electric bike, as such allowed me to keep summer commute times throughout winter, or until the controller crapped out anyways. A blast to ride but much too heavy (>40Kg).

JeanCoutu, are those reflective strips a part of the bike or where are they from? I have really poor side visibility on my winter bike, having something like that would be great.

JeanCoutu 11-18-07 04:19 PM

DOT-C2 Reflective tape as seen on trucks, etc. From Canadian Tire.
There's some in the rims too but they get covered in snow & grime...

Thanks, i'll pick some of that up tonight!

here's mine (the all-aluminum marin (san anselmo 2000)). i changed the headset/stem/handlebar and installed nokian w106 (700c) tires, fenders and home-made mud flaps and added "christmas tree" decorations... this bike (and the tires) will soon start their 4th year of service... forecast is for 15-30cm of snow tonight!!!

the other one was my first winter-beater. way too heavy and way too small for me... it was thrown away (along with the innova tires, after ~2 years of service...).

Did some riding around Riverside State park yesterday. For my winter riding I just lower the tire pressure and loosen up the pedal tension some. The pics are in the old camp Seven Mile area of the park.

This pic is from winter 06 in Toronto & this bike is back on the road this winter.

No Snow here. Maybe a dusting a year.

1997 Schwinn Mesa - Was my 14th birthday gift from my grandparents. Ten years later and I have finally started to take care of it and ride it like I should. This will be its first time seeing snow. Oh boy!

Just this month I have converted it to 2x2, new bars, rigid fork, fenders, BB, crankset, framesaver, everything painted, lubed and sealed. Gonna see how it does in the white stuff before getting some studs.

the Stumpjumper. took it out for a couple hours yesterday, first time I've been on a bike in weeks since I've been sick. felt good to be out there.

Trying my best to impersonate "The Stig 1.0". I failed, by the way.

Post-ride, pre-cleanup:

I just parked the bike and thought I'd snap a pic and post a pic...

My Kuwahara Cascade (fixed gear) on the commute the other day.

My Trek 7500 cross conversion after tonight's ride.

The Kuwie is my severe weather bike and besides being a fioxed gear runs a studded front tire whole the Trek is
ideal for those days after the roads have been cleared... the Schwalbe CX Compe tires on the Trek are working
beautifully and one would almost think they were studded as the traction and handling are excellent.

A picture in the snow. Most of the snow has melted today, it is supposed to stay warm all week. Hopefully after that we will get some deep stuff. No pictures of me on the bike, as I have nobody to ride with, snow or not. :(
