    First ride in the snow

    Got my first ride in snow this winter. It was only a couple of inches. No pictures of the riding it was too cold and windy to stop. I put on an old version of the mountain king on in the rear and swapped out my 20t for a 22t. And heres a crappy pic of my bike.

    We havent had much for snow riding here in Mn either...perhaps the cagers putting up the greenhouse gasses are killing winter? It's still really nice riding here though, warmest winter in years. Guy at 1x1 (way cool bikeshop/coffeehouse in Mpls) whom I will paraphrase from a winter riding article last year said of winter riding - There is no bad riding weather, only bad clothes!

    BTW- that is a mighty front tire you're running!!Enjoy your ride.

    Got out again today. 20 degrees and cloudy. Grip was awesome. Only problem was that I think my shoes were still a little wet from yesterday(cold toes). And heres a crappy pic from the ride.
