    Good for you, Sue. Weather was always a factor when I lived in Illinois, too, as far as how many miles I could ride in January. Go for it.

    As N.Y. says, don't lock :) yourself into what other are doing. Lots of good choices on pedals, these days. Nothing automatic about having to choose clipless.

    If I had to pick a sport to watch while on the trainer, I think it would be something faster-paced. Basketball would get me in better shape. :)

    Yeah, my indoor trainer is something I love to hate, but it sure does have a place in my biking. My Cycleops allowed me to stay in condition while recovering from my accident, last summer. Only...

    I'll bet that Di2 would spoil me, too. Almost afraid to even try that setup, but since I'm all flat bar, now, probably never will.

    Crankin, no, the disc brakes have nothing to do with how the bike shifts. MTB trigger shifters/derailleur combos vary tremendously on how they easily and fast they shift. Be sure to position and...

    Half inch of snow, overnight. Not enough to make the trails slippery, but rode the Norco fat bike just to be safe. The big 4.8" wheels did a nice job of re-packing the fresh snow for me and the Norco...

    Hope it works out for you, Crankin. Our weather continues to be cold, but at least we've had a little sunshine. That does help my mood, at least.

    Overnight lows now in single digits and about 5" of snow on the ground. Yup, still riding, snow and cold, notwithstanding. Same old crazy me.

    We got our snow, today. Not a lot, about 3". Still, it was enough to have a real snow day of fat biking on the Norco Sasquatch (great bike). Got out on our neighborhood roads before they were plowed...

    Some serious climbing with gradients like that. We're also mostly hills, but a lot gentler in nature. Would definitely have to work myself up to that stuff you rode. Good job on your part.
