It’s icy on the roads and paths for sure, i’ve met one or two of you that have suffered injury with ice related crashes. Whilst you can change tyres over the winter months for something with more grip, something like the Schwalbe Snow Stud tyre, with studs on the side of the tyre and smooth on the raised centre ridge, properly inflated it rolls like normal, with lower pressures it gives great grip…but you can also change your bike to both aid your stability and your luggage capacity. Yep, the xtracycle extends your wheelbase and provides you with a definite advantage in the winter months. With more time to respond to slips and slides i feel it’s a definite improvement to safely.
