Did you get a chance to check out the ice up your way? This week is suppose to be cold, but I'm thinking to be riding next weekend we'd need a decent amount of ice in place before the cold snap.

I'm anxious for ice to form as well, but what I'm really looking forward to is watching Scud do 140 on ice! I hope his tires are balanced and his steering dampener is cranked up.

13/46 is a little high but should be fine. More common is something closer to13/50. The speeds are fairly high on ice, so there is not really an issue of needing a low gear.
