Even though the front fender isn’t on yet I finally took my Norco out for a snowy spin this afternoon. Overall I was really happy with its performance. The fat tires made for a nice and stable ride in the mushy stuff and the single speed gearing felt just right. I actually found myself riding faster than I’ve been going on my Trek lately, but that might be because it was daylight. I rarely shift on my Trek in snowy conditions anyway so having a single speed bike feels really natural on the roads we have right now. At any rate having confirmed how much I enjoy riding the Norco, I’m definitely going to give the Trek some time off.
