it probably isn’t coincidence that the day we return to Chicago it’s only 26° and snowing. Why? Because it’s also the day my winter riding upgrades arrived! Pictured above is a brandy-new pair of Kenda Small-block cyclocross tires and a clamp-on rear fender – all destined to adorn the Redline shortly. The real question is – will this snow melt sometime before June, or should I have invested in spiked rubber instead?
