Only one snowstorm, Then, the government was shut down for a month. No job meant almost no riding. Suddenly, I was back at work, a cold snap put us into the single digits (8 F /-12 C), and the snow arrived. The studs finally went silent and the ride was soft and dreamlike. After I returned home from work, we watched the Washington Capitols win.. It's a real winter after all.

ordered an accessory extension (for the light & sportcam) cuz the barmitts cover up a lot of the bars

oh I remember this thread. this past winter I changed my winter bike from a hybrid to a mountain bike. also kinda weird I didn't use my road bike at all despite there being very little snow. I think because I wanted to play with the new (pre-owned) MTB

great off road with just a little snow

packed snow was the easiest to ride over

rutted snow & ice was fine

but these conditions were tough, kept breaking thru after rolling for a bit, that trail, that day, was better on XC skis

1998 Moots. It’s the one that gets studs in the winter but I haven’t put them on yet.

First try at winter riding, winters have become freeze thaw rollercoasters here. Roads are mixture of wet,slushy,icy,and snowy. Today was about -7C

Rigged for Winter

I received a donor set of lightly used Nokian studded tires yesterday along with some platform pedals from a family member who no longer commutes to work. Fenders were the only remaining items needed to convert my 970 into what I hope to be a reliable winter ride. Spring is still months away but I donít think I can hold off anymore as long as the ambient temps remain tolerable.

^^^^ Nice build, and one of the last lugged Treks. But you gotta show us some drive side. What brakes are those, BTW?

A bit of history on the bike can be found in the thread below starting at post #90 . Brakes are Shorty Ultimate cantis paired with vintage Deore XT 3 x 7 shift/brake levers that replaced the stock thumbies.

Show me your hybrid-ized vintage mountain bikes!
