We lack fear of flatness

Today I commuted by car because the bicycle was being repaired. I fetched it from the shop after work. Now a new gear hub has been installed, and studded winter tires. Tomorrow I'll try how it works.

The studded tires are heavier and less convenient, and also somewhat more slippery on asphalt, but at least I'm now prepared for the icy conditions. And who knows, maybe it will be possible to commute by bicycle most of the winter.
