You like endurance road riding. We agree, long road rides are one of our favorites — meditative, tests of mettle, and finding new roads. Now we want to know about the climate and weather conditions you ride in.
What road conditions do you want your new bike to excel at?
Dry temperate conditions on decent pavement. This is the most popular kind of riding. I don’t ride if it looks like rain, snow, or sleet. I don’t like getting my bike dirty, or catching a cold, or dealing with wet messy clothing. Riding in the rain just feels kind of sketchy.
Really rough roads. I ride a lot of poorly maintained roads, broken pavement, with sand and debris everywhere. Traction and control are really important because of these conditions.
I get caught in the rain sometimes. It’s important to me to feel safe and have good traction in the rain because sometime I will be riding in wet weather. This means want the best possible brakes and tires for wet unpredictable conditions in which it’s sometimes difficult to see the road ahead.
All Conditions. I’ll ride in anything including rain, sleet, snow, and ice. I most often ride in dry conditions but it sure does seem to rain and snow a lot, too. My bike’s brakes, traction, and gearing needs to excel in the worst weather.
Frozen conditions are the norm. I ride more in snow and icy conditions than I do in dry temperate conditions.
