What are you doing for your swim/run workout? You can PM me rather than post if you want. Just curious. My YMCA schedule, I will have to run and then swim because of pool hours and the schedule I am trying to work on .

Hey Patch, I'm a Surly rider too. I live on the Chester Creek Bike Trail and ride to and from work every day. I haven't driven to work for months now. Fun!

Live long and prosper. Your 'ol coworker, Mark H.

so cool seeing that bike being put to the use for which it was intended.

That bike has some big A$$ tires? You probably get a good workout just turning it over in normal conditions, let alone snow.

SWEET!

My B-17 broke in quickly by giving the neet's foot oil treatment. Brooks are comfy

My latest rides.
Picked up the Buenos Aries last week. Only 25 miles so far, but a sweet 25 it's very smooth. I hope to put some more on this weekend

The fixie was just something to do & will probably be put up for sale next week. I got it as a zebrakenko lightning. It's a nice steel frame with decent suntour drop outs. Freshly powder coated now

I miss the bike trails in Anchorage and biking to work. The Pugsley is very cool. If I still lived there I would probably have one to. I hope to return for a visit soon, with a kayak and mountain bike. :clap

That's what I thought too, before I got one. :evil

Yeah, on pavement there is quite a bit more rolling resistance but it must be the granular snow helps facilitate movement because it rolls much more easily in or on snow.

Tire pressure makes a HUGE difference too. I've run down around 5psi in deep fresh snow. Usually probably up around 10 or 12 tho. I sink LESS than a skate skier on this thing! Awesome.

Look forward to seeing you up here again, Patch. See ya, Mark H.

Perry, Sweet looking ride! Is that the Brooks tape or did you head to the Golf pro-shop ?

Thanks. No it's Brooks tape, same color as the saddle. you can't see it but the top bar piece says Brooks engraved in the leather (end piece from the tape).

Leather feels great too.

Well I meant the tape job...

Haven't rode the Fixie this wknd, just the Raleigh. Will report after a few spins on it, sure it will be a harsh ride until it breaks in.

I learned a very valuable lesson yesterday.

While watching TV riding on the rollers is a good way to make the minutes fly by, watching bob-sleighs go down a track is not :D As I was watching the TV I found myself leaning into the turns of the bob-sleigh track...not what you want to do on rollers.
Third time on the rollers and I am definitely getting the hang of it all - I still fall occasionally but I'm getting much better. I can even wipe my brow while riding (quickly though :D) I had forgotten how much of a workout riding a bike really is (which is great) and how sore my ass feels after a while :huh

Can't wait till spring to get out on the roads though.
