    Glad I didn't drive. Traffic looked horrible....fat bike was fine. We'll see how the commute home is.
    I go in before 6, didn’t have any increase in commute time

    Yesterday afternoon ride was worse than this morning, snowing and cold headwind the whole time and I noticed that I couldn't change the front derailleur, I thought that the cable loosened or snapped.
    Once I got home, I inspected the FD and it was all ice haha, let it thaw and it was working again.

    Most of my ride this morning was fine expect 5-6 sketchy sections where snow compacts and turns into ice so I just ride really slow on those.

    Do you guys ride with snow goggles in the winter? I'm seriously considering it now.

    I ride with goggles in the winter. The other tip is...make your winter commuter single speed, solves so many issues.

    yeah I thought about it but I have some short climbs on my route and having some gears in the back helps. for the most part I think I can get by with a 39/19 ratio.
    if I do end up keeping my 26" beater next year, I will be changing the front from 3x to 1x though

    or pick up one of these haha

    I just ride with clear sunglasses. I think the bulky goggles would bother me.

    I ride my fixed gear most of the time with a 46/16 ratio up 10th street/14th street and up and over nose hill. 39/19 you should be more than fine if you decide to go SS.
    Fat bike is rusted to hell and I leave in the hardest gear and haven't shifted it in 2 seasons. haha. On my winter beaters I pretty much wait until they start squeaking to clean/lube the chain....lol.

    I ride with a k2 ski helmet that is also rated for cycling and a set of clear goggles. Light balaclava under the helmet.
