Anonymous as a creator is one of the most import features of the internet and civilization. It’s through this guise that the abused and voiceless of society can be given voice. She is brilliant and freedom.
given that my typical bus to and from work is $2.25 each way and the money I’ve spend on Frankenbike is about 25$ I only need to ride the Frankenbike six times before I’ve gotten my moneys worth; the great thing about winterbiking is just once even feels worth it. I’ll likely break even on that before the end of next week assuming weather holds out.
My job has me talking to people across the states; I love when they complain about it being cold at 40º; I avoid mentioning that it was very warm today at 27º - easy biking weather.
The biggest adjustment for winterbiking is that everything you know about what is easy and hard is wrong.
Uphills on snow put your weight on the drive tire; no problem.
Downhills in snow is a interesting combination of sledding; tightrope walking; and suicide.
So I guess anything south of 31st doesn’t count? Sorry Pizza Luce on 32nd but this site has deemed you unimportant. Don’t feel too bad though, I’ll still keep telling people to turn at Pizza Luce to get to my place because it’s a heck of a lot better than driving/biking on 31st.
