When I get out in the snow, I'll put flat pedals on the SS, put the tire pressure down around 20lbs, lower the seat, and use my insulated Danner boots with wool socks. Kinda heavy, but never had a problem getting cold or wet.BelaySlave said:For this season I got a pair of Answer Kasmir winter MTB shoes. I've only used 'em once though. I got them a size bigger than what I normally wear and even with wool hiking socks there is still plenty of room in the toe box. I may try a pair of mountaineering socks to see if that will take up some more volume. I'll also throw in pair of the green SuperFeet insoles.
Last year I just went with wool hiking socks and Pearl Izumi booties. The only problem with the booties is that the bottoms tend to get chewed up after a while.
I've read about Gore-Tex socks before so that will be something else I try soon.
It's like the same 5 guys who get their rocks off on this board talking about totally personal crap they could IM or cell or bird call to each other. Then they talk smack about you and others who don't laugh at their clique's humor. Why not save the bandwidth (like the one I'm wasting) and just move into a commune with a big fire pit and a KY pump dispenser. Argue, jerk, argue, drink, argue, ride.bikemech23 said:Um, well, have fun with that. Looks boring to me, but then again I've never tried it.
I would totally suck riding a singlespeed cause uphill riding would be a bit limited trying to pound a 36x12 with flat pedals. I don't ride those bear traps, and how you gonna go fast downhill if you can't pedal? I see that our purposes differ. To each his own I guess.
I figured you'd argue, cause that's all you do.
I do too. I hope they build a parallel site called www.pud****erz.com so when I tire of looking at gap jumps and drop-ins I can see what the curmudgeon flavor savor heart rate monitor crowd is up to. Oooh, I can hear the Fabulous Five dropping their glass of chardonnay and warming up.bikemech23 said:I see a new winter sport coming about!
you can get web hosting pretty cheap. instead of hoping for someone to do it you can make your own site. for 20 bucks a month you can get plenty of space.westin said:I do too.
