Mother nature obliged me with a chance to see how the new ride handles the elements! While my brother-in-law is regaling me tales of temperatures in the 60's in South Carolina, I was fumbling for the middle finger emoticon button through thick gloves.
Take the picture, then run inside and warm up!
Everything runs smoothly. I have been running a slightly lower tire pressure in the cold. It helps a lot with traction! Other than that, snow be damned! Get out and ride your bike!*
*this was largely miserable and I DO NOT condone riding in the snow unless necessary.
