Hey I live in Ottawa and I was thinking of building a bike this January. It would be my first time build one and I was wondering if it would be a bad idea to build it and ride it in the winter (at least for break in). Riding the bike isn’t the worry as the roads and sidewalks here are plowed pretty well I’m just wondering if it would be catastrophic for the motor during break in? I would probably only use it for short trips (<10 mins driving and about 1hour parked outside) I have room inside my house so I plan on keeping it inside when not use. How bad would it be for the motor and should I just wait till spring to start the build?
 
W, don't those nubs on the Kenda wear down quickly, then you have a slick. They're so few and sparsely spaced.

If ya look at 26" x 4" fat tires you'll notice most all manufactures have small knobbies spaced far apart 🤷‍♂️
Suppose to be the best traction for all terrain

Kenda Juggerknot 1,500 miles on the rear then the knobbies are worn down but not a slick yet, Time to replace
When the knobbied (nubs) get worn down I loose traction in the dirt
Yeah. the knobbie spacing had me concerned but it's got good traction, that's until the knobbies wear down :LOL:


I shopped tires for the biggest knobbies, Figured I would try the CST Toboggan next
