I just noticed the studded tyres, a bit extreme for the 2 days of snow every 5 years we get, but looks cool in the snow pics :D

I'm running 38-16 on mine, (so more or less the same as your 39-17 i guess), and it's too big for anything steep off road but nice for light trails and road use,

Im a gears man myself, but I like the black and red theme you got there...

And in the snow, 1 gear is usually all you can get after a few miles anyway.... 8)
