Tonight, I did 13.6 miles on the Trek. I had forgotten how nice if feels to cruise along on hard, skinny, stud-free tires. I did miss the Diamondback’s low gears on the hills, but it was fun overall. The only downside (apart from the gears) was that the Trek is still wearing its summertime SPD pedals, so I had to wear the matching summertime shoes. Even with my wonderously warm RedHead wool socks (inside plastic bread bags to keep out the wind) my feet got horribly cold. I’ve been inside for about 15 minutes, and I still can barely feel my toes.
Maybe I should get battery-powered socks
