Rob and I have the exact same winter bike so when he popped into BikeWorks North to begin his shift as a mechanic, it was of interest to me to inspect his ride.
Coincidentally, we both have swapped out the index shifters and replaced them with simple-to-use-with-gloves friction shifters. He even has the same headlight as me on his handlebars.
I learned a lot from Rob about winter cycling and perhaps this is just a case of me copying him.
Rob wants me to email him this picture so that he can send it to a friend in Iran who has a mobile shoe shining business and wants to know what winter is like in Canada.
