I got a good snow ride in this year. We don’t get snow often in Seattle, but every few years, there is enough to accumulate. For these precious moments, I keep this bike around. It’s an older (’96?) Kona AA hardtail.  The tires are Hutchinson mtbs with machine screws in every few knobbies at about a 45 degree angle. They don’t contact much when I’m bolt upright, but in a turn, then really dig in. Talk about riding on rails – more like riding on nails. Fun stuff. The only problem I have is the drops are too low for comfort. Ah – a tweakable moment…
