Bike Check, Snow update

Its finally a full blown Duluth winter. Daytime highs in the teens, lows in the negs. Here's a pic of the ice build up from a 3rd floor window of my house. The only way I can think to insulate that room is to stuff a futon mattress in the french doors (its a sun room).After a few weeks of riding in the cold and the snow, I've settled on a final build for my daily. I've also started wearing a snowboarding helmet and amber goggles to save myself from frost bite. The wind gets real bad sometimes. My pace has slowed down greatly too. Its mostly about staying warm and safe on the salty streets.

This sled is rocking WTB FN29 rims laced to sealed formula track hubs. The fixed gear is a lot of fun maneuvering down the snowy hills. Just have to keep the front tire upright and I'm good.
