Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!
When I left, all of the pavement was covered in snow (and ice, where the car tires had packed it down). So, I replaced the fair-weather wheels (broken spoke and all) with the studded tire-shod winter wheels and took off. Although I used them a couple of weeks ago, today was the first time this season that I have actually seen a need for them, once I was out on the street.
As always, when using the studded tires, I was amazed at how slow I was. I have some new studded 700c tires for the yellow bike. I am curious if they will slow me down as much on that bike, comparatively, as these do on the mountain bike.
Speaking of the yellow dog, I need to fix yet another problem on it. The headset won't stay adjusted, due to the threads on the top of the steer tube stripping out (the locknut won't hold). Maybe I'll fix that, this afternoon.
