    Headed out for a short training ride along the Grand river the other morning.
    It was -15C and sunny which is perfect "crunchy" snow riding conditions.

    Even the horses are impressed with my new ride. They followed me for a bit. The big guy had some serious wood happening. Didn't want to be his wife today .

    Out today with 50 degree weather in VT!!!




    Question for you guys. I lowered my tire pressure down a few PSI and got a good bit more traction on the hill climbs. However with the 2" of slush I was sliding like a snow boarder at some turns, kind of plowing the snow with me and having my back tire slide around at some points. When I hit the back side of the mountain and where it was still frozen ice and soft or packed snow I got great traction with the floaters, is slush a little different to ride in?

    Yes, some conditions are such that the bike is going to go all over the place, regardless of the tires (although floaters are supposed to be excellent). Ride with heavy feet and light hands, and use your entire cockpit. Just relax and go with the flow, it's actually pretty fun. Ps. I love the winter camo colors of the bike. Pps. Let more air out.

    Thanks for the tips. That was one of the biggest things I noticed out there about the hands and feet. I felt like unlike my XC bike I had to steer with my hands/fingers only and not my whole arm/shoulder strength if that makes any sense. I enjoy the white tires myself, glad they had them in stock. The tires had a nice amount of bump absorption with the PSI that I had used, but I'm excited to try a little lower next time!
