Is there anyway you can repost that picture other then with Google? For me it won't show, and I feel like I need to see a winter recumbent!

Here is a link to my newish winter bike. It's a 2017 Trek cross bike with Schwalbe Winter tires that I've been swapping with Bontrager CX0's as weather dictates. I can't say that I love winter riding but I love riding even in the winter.

Here's my recent purchase, taken on the loading dock at work where, behind the door, is the bike cage.

@cambiker71 that's a great looking commuter, great framing of the photo. Lots of nice bikes in here again. @jrickards the moment I get a garage I'm getting a fat bike!

Well, I finally did it! I spent the whopping $40 and bought fenders, something I have been putting off for three years! Why have I put it off? No clue!

Nice bike. How do you feel about the front fenders, do they work? When it is wet, I find that I get spray up into my face but most of the spray goes back towards the bottom bracket (and chain) so I prefer the downtube style fender.

Mild(er) weather winter bike

The winter bike with studs

Both made in Colorado with as much of each manufacturer's parts on them as I can get up to and including a Dean integrated handlebar

And they are as "American" as I can make them. Paul, White Industries, Phil Wood, Chris King, Velocity rims, etc.

I still have my CruX for the road and gravel, but I sold my alloy fat bike and bought a carbon one. It is a few lbs lighter and you can feel that 5 lb difference. The carbon frame is a lot stiffer than the alloy one as well. This one has a lighter frame but also lighter components. I put an ENVE carbon DH bar on it (800mm) and some Deity flat pedals though I use Frogs if the trails are really well packed. The 4.0 tires were taken off and some new ones put on (4.8F/4.6R) and converted to tubeless. I also installed studs in the rear tire since the Spring can be icy in several spots. Ice crashes are simply too fast to stop so the studs have already helped a lot...no crashes.

Thanks! Funny thing is my Talon looks almost exactly like the high end XTC of that year so I think people mistake me for riding a better bike then I do As for the fenders I had maybe ten minutes on them so far I was tired of the front flinging stuff up, today was the last straw as I was headed into a brisk wind and the tires were tossing slush straight up and into my face. They worked awesome though for that ten minutes, I was able to take the goggles off and even though the front seems long I never hit it with my foot.

@cyccommute Wow, those are sweet!! I love the whole idea of them

@Chandne A carbon fiber fat bike with studs would be Un. Stoppable.

Talk about a rush of awesomeness tonight!

I rode twenty-five miles of trails last Saturday, when Mother Nature gave us a preview of Spring.


My winter Barracuda has held up very well this year.


By Saturday, much of our snow had melted. Unfortunately, on Monday we got 3-6 more inches in blizzard conditions.


Trails in the city have been well-kept all winter.


Just look at all that dry pavement. Studded tires are overkill in these conditions, but you should hear that gnarly "crackling" noise as we ride along.


Hopefully soon I will stop posting to this thread and go back to showcasing my small herd of C&V steel. However, last night I flushed and re-lubed Barracuda's drivetrain. We're not out of the winter woods yet...

That's an old dirtbike thing. Riding motorbikes in the winter taught me that you need some healthy clearance between wheel and fender to prevent clogging with snow.

had a small issue with a rear fender (& derailer) recently so your clearance caught my eye. ultimately I don't think clearance was my issue, I think a stick flew into the chain, derailer & spokes, but honestly not 100% sure cuz whatever it was flew out & I never saw it. fender & fender stays bent back OK but had to replace the derailer
