It's the only way to ride when it gets properly cold, mudguards are useless, just fill up with snow and ice then jam. And when it gets a bit colder, it's so dry that the snow is either packed solid and like concrete, or like fine sand........

Lutefisk for all!!
No, just no. Never, it's nearly as bad as surströmming.

Nearly.

Ha. Yes in proper snow, mudguards definitely have no place, except for something like shown above at the rear. @Kampiakseli definitely gets an open pass to this thread. And other fat tire snow pics would be cool too. It’s fun. And I don’t know what strumofëlli or whatever you said is, but if it’s worse than Lutefisk, I’ll pass.

Here is my winter hack. Maybe not a proper winter bike since it doesn’t have any fenders, hell it even lacks derailleurs Image Nevertheless fenders and derailleurs would clog up instantly in these awful conditions.

And for the record: surströmming är asäckligt!

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

This is a serious winter machine. Damn it’s cool. Not in the ballpark of this topic. But this one is too good to make an exception.

My 60.000km old winterbike.
Almost everything is replaced or repaired exept the Magura HS33 and Son dynamo.
Even the Rohloff is repaired 3 times under warranty. Best choise ever to buy the Rohloff.

Here's my proper winter bike. I commute on it whenever it's too snowy for my road/cross bike. (And then take it on proper rides too, just not on the road!) It's a 130mm 29er hardtail built around a steel frame that I welded up myself last fall.

A few questions:
What is your gearing ? 38-11/42?
Which derailleur are you using?

40t absolute black
10-42 SRAM 1199.. but the 42 was swapped with a Oneup 44t
RD is Shimano XTR 9050 medium... with a goatlink but it's probably not needed, I had one so what the hell and it may or may not be needed if I run the E13 9-46t later.
