Blaaaaaaaaaaaah

Yucky, disgusting road grime and weeks worth of sand, salt, and sludge suspended in a thin layer of water. That's what I get to ride through tonight. My wife's birthday is tomorrow and Valentine's Day right after that. I love riding in the snow and I don't mind riding in the heat, either. One thing I hate, though, is rain.

I think I'm going to go to JCCC, then put my bike on the truck, go shopping for the stuff I need, then come come that way. Yes, it's cheap. I will have ridden a mile in the rain though, and that's plenty messy for me, without having fenders to rescue me from all the crud my knobbies like to kick up onto me.

Agree with your riding in the rain statement. I don't have the tires for snow riding.

I very much dislike my commuter bike, a Marin Belvedere. I am working on pimping it up a little, to make it more comfortable.

Drop handlebars for starters.

fenders and rain pants and coat make all the difference. I used to dislike riding in the rain, but now I kind of enjoy it. I just need a longer mudflap to keep my shoes and feet warm. If you get fenders, make sure they are full coverage fenders, they work the best.
