Angry Why is the thread closed?

What's the deal with closing the "just curious" thread when it was just getting interesting?

It was probably closed because it was devolving into a crabbing match, instead of being useful.

I agree with jho - please share your comments about the forum and about riding freely, even if you need to make a new thread to do so.

Default Rounder?

Hey Sachi...I like your site link...you guys sound like my kind of people. My record is going to work in 9 degrees....so I guess that makes me a rounder. On the warm side a sweater. If the road is clear I just gotta ride. The photo of the driveway with the tire width shoveled cracked me up.

Thanks, jhof! The Rounders site is not my creation, but it's a site I enjoy tremendously. I'm trying to give it a bit more publicity by including the link in my .sig.

Riding in 9 degrees is darn good! I think my lowest was about the mid 20s. But then, I live in San Diego. It's hard to find freezing temps here!

Yeah..I've been reading some of the old forum stuff and you folks really hit it on the head with the "make your own heated vest"......very tempting to try it. The only thing that cracks my spirit in the winter is very very cold hands ....well and a sheet of ice....lol.

Consider yourself lucky to not have to deal with freezing temps....I've considered moving just to get rid of my car.

Go sign up over there and ask how best to deal with cold hands. Those folks do NOT stop for anything except terrible road conditions.

When I lived in Seattle (which was where I rode in the mid-20s temps) I handled cold hands with thick gloves. That was barely enough. These days you can get heated grips and electric gloves too, such as the Gerbing G3s. I think some people build fairings for their hands as well, to break the wind over the grips. You'll get a lot of suggestions.
