Ethan, our esteemed mechanic, has ridden consistently through Denver winters for 23 years throughout which he has experimented with all kinds of Winter bicycle gear. Here is the list of his top 6 much needed items for cold slick Winter road conditions.
|Bar Mitts will save your fingers from frostbite.|
|Magura Hydraulic rim brakes|
|Suomi studded tires offer traction around corners and through ruts|
Icy intersections? slick corners? black ice? no problem with Suomis.
|Rohloff is the best German manufactured internally geared hub|
|Full coverage fenders keeps the cyclist clean|
|Incredibly grippy platform pedals from MKS|
Even when my boots were encased in slush these pedals gipped my soles. No need to mess around with toe clips are clip-in pedals when snow boots are required for warmth in single digit temperatures. I had no problem pushing ahead with these super grippy MKS pedals.
So there you have it my definition of a snow bike. It would be much harder to traverse those snow packed streets without these helpful components. With the right preparation Winter riding is fantastic fun so easily guaged by the corny grin plastered on my face as I steadily rode back to work with my cargo bags filled with fresh fruit.
