    Wintertime Biking Stoke Thread

    Sometimes it helps to have some pictures to get motivated to get out there during these cold, wet days.

    Hey Pabs, was that last pic taken at the Belgium frittes place in Arvada? How are they? Frittes and pizza are my life right now.
    So it seems to me to be, this thing that I think I see.

    LOL-Try getting on a bike.
    This is a BIKE forum. I recall you saying you don't even ride anymore. Try a fittes or pizza forum instead of clogging up this place with your non stop, off topic posts.

    Good eye. They're tasty, as are the dozens of dipping sauces. I don't know if I'm enough of a fry buff to really, say, but you get your money's worth. Of course, my Dad's cardiologist told him that fries are the food equivalent of smoking, so be careful. You'll need some quality time in the saddle to even out the calories.

    So out of curiosity, how do suspesion forks perform in low temps? I would think the oil would be a bit on the thick side and you would be open to some extra bushing rub/wear, or at a minimum you'd have to re-dial in the compression setting(s).

    the thread title is "Wintertime Biking Stoke Thread"

    other than the notion that this is something of a psuedo-mtb forum, the thread title doesn't imply it's mountain bike specific

    traveling in wintertime to warmer climes is all part of that stoke

    riding what ya brung is biking

    Fries are the equivalent of smoking? I wish I never read that.

    I much prefer to ski when there's at least 3 or 4 inches of snow. Since last week's snow, I've skied 4 times in the mountains (nordic/tele) and once here in town (fort collins). But now that the now will start melting/refreezing and won't be so great for skiing, I'll get back on my bike.

    ideal chain for the track, or ideal to be thrown on the road

    at least you have that campagnolo doo-dad and don't have to resort to a ted-shred if you throw that chain

    I road brakeless for several years; the chain line's ideal for road purposes, like these: http://forums.roadbikereview.com/com...rt-111043.html

    Where are you skiing, if you don't mind me asking?
    Gone are the days we stopped to decide,
    Where we should go,
    We just ride...
