The "new" tires really suck. I have come to the conclusion that wider tires are not very good in the snowy conditions. My cyclocross tires performed much better on last years' bike. I am thinking about building up a road bike for the winter and selling the Tasshara - even though it performed well with the Bontrager H2 hybrid tires I had on it previously. They just did not do well in the wintery weather.

This called for the ski helmet and goggles. I did better than my bike, which totally slowed down. It was like pulling a fully loaded Burley the last two miles to and fro...
