While I don’t like cold, per se, I do enjoy riding in the snow. A lot. It’s a very different kind of cycling to what I do the rest of the year. Speed and endurance take the backseat to staying upright, and enjoying the back of the bike squirm. Studs on the gravel bike help, both with confidence and traction, but I learned yesterday that there is no substitute for contact patch.
Which lead me down the fat bike rabbit hole, and the discovery that 1) fat bikes are out of style 2) they are nearly impossible to buy right now; with some retailers indicating July delivery, and one dealer telling me he wouldn’t bother ordering one at this point… I knew the bike supply chain was all sorts of effed, but that’s crazy. Guess I’ll be hitting the phone harder today :).
