Anyone been getting out in these sub zero temps? What changes in your bike set up?  Are you using any special gear? Tricks/tips?

For myself I’ve been a couple times this week as work is pretty much frozen out. I’m trying to find the motivation to get out again today, it looks like the snow is coming.

Hot tip for riding in the cold: Set your Maxxgrip aside until it's warmer.

watch out for carbon rims below zero...  they tend to crack easier.  Ask me how I know.

If you are riding in snow, go to flat pedals, my winter riding boots clump up with ice on the sole, making it very difficult to clip in and hard to clean when you are freezing your ass off.
