The major advantage of having a basic winter bike is you don't have to clean it :) Why waste riding time!

I properly rate the TK2 as a winter bike, but those wheels are all wrong - you need something heavy (and handbuilt) :wink:


I know you were having a play but given it was my bike that started the debate, I thought I ought to explain myself :wink:

The parts on this build have just evolved over time, as I have purchased new wheels / groupsets etc for use on my other frames. I think if I was starting from scratch, I would have fitted lower spec parts. My previous winter build (which my son now uses) has Mavic Aksiums and an original Ultegra 6600 set up on a Ribble frame.

I definitely enjoy the feeling of bringing my "best" bike out once spring arrives - although I could not resist taking my C59 out for a decent spin last Sunday as the roads were so clean and dry here in the UK. In addition, I really cant bring myself to ride around on Dura Ace / Super Record groupsets once the salt starts getting laid down :shock:

solarider does make some good points. heavy doesn't always mean unenjoyable though IME ... heavy rims on nice aero wheels for example can give a sublime ride quality.

I keep 2 of 3 bikes away from the wet, salt etc. ... if you live in a dry area then winter can still be a nice time to ride the WW high-end stuff.

Nice bike but your dog is wearing too much eye shadow and mascara.


As a side note, the dog makes me think of the dog version of Mrs. Havisham from Great Expectations. Granted, our dog also has some heavy eye makeup too.

This the best winter (or bad weather) bike I´ve seen. Can we have a build list?
Specially interested in: frame, fork, mudguards, tyres, brakes.
Do you ride this bike also in snow?
