That sucks you can't ride. Snow, would seem to cause a bit of a traction problem . I just hit 4000 miles. I've had her for about 7 months now... Haven't ridden her much this winter. I don't get snow or freezing temps like you, but it still gets cold. I'm about due for two new tires. The front tire burnt out just as quickly as the back.
now out of curiousity with your wife riding and your liking of brookes riding outfit, if per say our wives sizing matches would you be interested in the matching suit or the pants? Brookes bike is blue and she wants something to match more. Price would be extremely reasonable
