I put around 1000kms on this bike last winter but am hoping that my "new" roadbike fixie recently assembled with help from the folks at Phat Moose Cycles will absorb most of those kms when the roads are bare.
The Lavadome was assembled last fall with assistance of my buddy Christian who gave me a Surly Conversion Kit for my birthday. I went with fixed gear over free hub because I found my hub was freezing below -10C, meaning that my single-speed was turning into a zero-speed. One solution was to carry a thermos of hot water with me and thaw the hub when needed. The other alternative was to pedal the single-speed as if it were a fixie since keeping the palls engaged the whole ride didn't allow them to freeze up. Not an easy thing to do for an hour through the city . But I digress.
For tyres, I have gone with the Nokian Hakkapelitta W106, which you can read about at Peter White Cycles. These are an excellent tyre for winter as they have decent rolling resistance with studs where it matters. The studs are carbide, which is a must on asphalt (bitumen) since steel studs will wear out in no time.
I usually oil the bike up carefully at the start of the season and then leave it outdoors until spring as I've heard it said many times that the temperature cycling resulting from bringing the bike indoors is harder on it than the accumulated grit from winter riding.
Oh, and check out the cool reflections in the above photo! Those are not a Divine roadmap, but the result of 3M Scotchlite available by the metre from MEC. Good shit that. So, when I get do inevitably get run down, remember that it was intentional and avenge my death.
