With the snow blowing and piling up I thought it was a good day to give the bike a good cleaning, put the fenders and rack back on, and get ready for another season of commuting. The Trek held up well against the abuse I put it through last year. No cracked wheels this year. (I'm on my second front wheel and my fourth rear wheel, all but one replaced for free.) This year should be better since it won't have to endure cyclocross racing any more.
