Yes, studded tires would probably be a must. A lot of people ride single speeds in the snow here too, avoids shifting problems I guess. And they say it also helps for training. You learn quick to carry your speed up hills for instance. Thanks for the welcomes everyone!
Welcome to the team. I used to live in MI and had to deal with the harsh winters. Thanks to the Navy I have been living in mostly nice climates for most of my time. However, when I do find myself in a position that I can't ride I use body weight exercises to keep myself fit even when I can't ride. I hope you are able to keep working on your goals and enjoy the team!
Hello Everyone from Winnipeg Canada! I've been patiently waiting for spring to get back on my trusty old bike. Maybe this year I'll reward myself with a new one when I approach my goal weight. I'd love to turn my old bike into a nice single speed for snow next winter. Until then, this group should tie me over till I can come out of hibernation!
