I am looking at the tyres and wondering if the bike wasn't carried into position?
Then I remind myself, surely none of your lot would ride something that pristine in the snow?

At the temperatures snow doesn't stick, quite the contrary, the tires are even cleaner. :lol: :lol:

yes a bit! It has just 2 to 3 cm less travel.

Sorry about that guys! Only ever ridden a bike in the snow once, and I do now recall it washed the tyres clean.

I also recall it was damn hard work as the snow here rarely falls below 1000M, and the altitude does no favours to those used to living closer to sea level!
