Not riding in the snow but I have achieved something.

I made the wheels for my next project - another tilting taddy. I know I have yet to complete the Drypod2 but it's cold in my garage and "my legs are grey. My ears are gnarled. My eyes are old and bent". At least those are my excuses and this was a nice warm indoor job. The colour scheme for the project will be silver and black hence my choices here. 20 x 1 1/8 front and 700 x 32c rear. Discs all round with 15mm thru hubs front using 15 to 12mm reducers. The 15mm hubs plus converters were much cheaper than I could find 12mm ones for. There's a 10 speed freewheel there too and surprisingly a std axle is fine with that number. 1.2kg each front not including axles and 2.6 kg rear including the axle. All cheap components. No exotic materials were harmed during this production.

Can't beat the impetus of having "new wheels" needing a home to sit on. :)
