I'm fine with the feedback. Just think it's a bit harsh that because it doesn't satisy what you think makes a "winter bike" means it can't be.Multebear wrote: ↑Mon Nov 12, 2018 1:54 pmI realize it came out a little harsher than meant. And if this is your winterbike then it’s your winterbike, and as such satisfies the headline of this topic.
On the other hand, if you post something for others to see, then you have to expect some sort of feedback. Otherwise it doesn’t really make sense to post anything for others to see.
And what I see (my feedback) when I look at your bike, is a completely regular of the shelf mid/low end racebike. There’s nothing special about it (except that you paintet it yourself, would fit in a DIY paintjob topic). In my opinion it doesn’t add anything to this topic though. If you’d made some modifications to improve it of some sort, that would make it particularly well suited for wintertraining, then yes. But to me it looks completely of the shelf. And no explanation why this particular bike is especially well suited for winter. And from what I understand it isn’t even a winterbike, it’s an indoor bike. Maybe we should have a topic about bikes for indoor training, if there isn’t one already.
There’s a topic called show me your paincave. I think it would fit really good there, with a picture of you whole paincave setup.
This topic should be about showing bikes that are especially suited for outdoor wintertraining, to overcome all the difficulties regarding all the shitty weather you can take your bike out in.
In response to your feedback, that is pretty much what it is. A cheap aluminium race bike with a cheap groupset, 25mm (measure 28mm) Endurance tyres and grippy bar tape. Which is what most winterbikes are, I could stick some mudguards on it, but I hate the way they look (and I try not to go out in the rain anyway).
IMO if that's what these sort of topics are for, that should be stated in the original post. I saw it as "show me your winter bike". I only ride this in winter so it is my winter bike and I have shown it.
