How was your winter commuter in the end, buddy?

Well, it's now spring, so?

Yes, as soon as I get the work I need to done on my main commuter I will switch back to that and give the Prometheus its spring service.

Winter commuting went well, though there was no need to switch to the winter tyres I'd bought. The bike did feel a bit slow - I'm not really sure why, but I'm hoping that it was either me or that a service will make it feel better.

In terms of being low maintenance it worked really well. The mudguards did their job well and the titanium frame is soooo easy to quickly wipe clean.

I'll make sure I have it even better set up for next year!

Farewell faithful friend:

I always knew that was a risk and I certainly got my money's worth. I'll try not to think about the pedestrian who caused it.

I can hold off for now on working out a replacement until I know whether I will be commuting by bike next winter.

I'd certainly jump at the chance of another titanium frame to build a winter commuter, given how easy it is to keep clean and corrosion-free.
