My shitty weather/ travel bike. Spooky aluminium, super record, wr compositi forks/ post/ saddle. Schmolke bars, tune stem and ax tubs with corsa controls (very durable and puncture resistant). Winter in Australia is pretty mild with lower than average rainfall so no need for fenders etc.
What a nugget...
Yeah. It looks good. To bad it’s in the wrong thread though :roll:

Its getting uncomfortably close to the rainy season over here, time to tuck away the aero wheels and dust off the mud-guarded winter bike. So what will you be riding for the next few months?

Prize for the heaviest :lol:

I like that very much - no nonsense, well set up, practical & proper winter mode! Everything looks just right! :thumbup:

This is china frame GF-001 with big wheel space. It takes 27,5" wheels with Ice Spiker Pro 2,2" width during winter and regular 28" wheels. Here is picture on its autum/spring mode and roadwheels.

Sorry, these are removable. Here they are attached again, when temperature is below -20 deg. Or did you mean fenders for arms?

No, he was joking.

There were a few posts a few pages back of "winter bikes" which looked more like pro tour bikes.
Whereas Scandi "deep winter" bikes really don't want guards, or the wheels will stop going round.

A follow up question to kampiakseli: is it a tight fit with the Ice spiker pros? Seeing that your frame and fork is said to take up to 2.1” tires in the 650b configuration, is it Ice spiker pros 2.25” you have been able to squeeze in there? Thanks!

That's correct, it is Ice Spiker Pro 2,25" and there is plenty room in front, but rear is tight. I had to cut rear tyre knobs little to avoid rubbing on chainstays, but now it fits.

Now that’s winter! “Hand fenders”... I love it. And I have no idea what you mean when talking about “arm fenders”, but at that point you’re so beyond what most people ride their bikes in that I think you should get a prize of some sort. And you do have a fender at the back so you get a solid pass here. I think this bike definitely deserves a place in this thread even though the flavor of this thread leans towards the users who equip their bikes for riding paved roads in inclement weather. But love what you’ve done here. Lutefisk for all!!
