When you don’t watch the weather, every storm is a surprise! Went out this morning to go to the store for a few essentials before the rest of the world was awake (and the snow got deeper than my hubs). I haven’t been out of the house for more than an hour since early November so I’m glad I did while I had the chance.
Of course now I have to clean and lube everything, but it was worth it. So much fun to ride in before it gets all icy and nasty.
I got disk brakes as a free upgrade when I bought my bike years ago because they cut the wrong style fork before they checked the order form for what I wanted. For the most part they’ve been fine, but in the wet they are A W F U L L O U D. Every steep hill is like an announcement of the apocalypse. Luckily snow slows you down so I didn’t end up using the brakes too much.
