The idea here is to show off your winter ride. Kids in other parts of the country have typically one or two really nice bikes, but here in Minnesota due to the wide variety of seasons and terrain most riders have more. We have access to mountain bike trails, gravel, velodromes, good road riding etc. Most also have a dedicated winter steed, the beloved shit* bike for riding in the winter slop and salt. These are those kind of bikes.

*shit bike is a very relative term as many people's beater, including my own are actually very nice machines
