Here's the winter bike this year. In the past, I've rolled with an ice bike and a snow bike. For crazy deep snow, I'll still run the Rawland with Neomotos, but for daily driving, the MB-2 is the plan this winter.
I scored the 7-speed Nexus hub wheel on the iBOB list about 6 months ago. Glen horizontalified the MB2 last spring.
I'll put the basic Hakkapaliita studs on it come ice/snow time. For now it's rolling my favorite 26" tires: the 1.75 (non-tourgaurd) Pasalas.
Once the tandem season is officially over (which coincides exactly with the snow/ice season), I'll pull the generator wheel and light off the tandem and put it on this beauty.
I also have some different bars pending. More city style. And if I can wedge the Softride stem on there with the new bars, I must have it.
This frame has put out like there's no tomorrow. It xtracycled for about 4 years (2 or so years of that it survived the Snyder treatment -- no small feat), and before that, it was a Hummer.
This picture does not even come close to capturing the rad sunset we had for about 15 minutes last night. This is Maddie on the front of the cycle truck.
