GT: With the change of seasons to Winter I have moved to riding my fat bike, a Salsa Cycles Titanium Mukluk. I am a bike mechanic and longtime "bike nerd", so I have a LOT of bikes, but wintertime commuting and fun riding works best on the fat bike for me. People always ask, "Isn't it hard to pedal?", and you know, the answer isn't an easy one. It is and it isn't. I like it when I have to work a little harder against the wind, or to climb a hill, because it makes warmth. That's a good thing in winter...
