Here is a picture of my new 27.5 bike on it's first ride yesterday. Everything worked great, just have to get used to the springy dingy seat. I like the shock absorption but the movement of the seat makes me feel like something is coming apart.
Anyone else have winter ride pictures? This is such a mild winter so far on the coast, not too hard to get out between rain storms.

Here pretty soon I'll have a new bike with my Phantom 85 mounted and running. It's currently 25* here in far east Oregon and I can't do squat outside without freezing
 
I took trike out today and it was 45 degrees out. Shorts,vans slip ons no socks and a hoodie with cheap gloves.
I'm talking 5 bucks for a 30 pack of those brown malwart gloves. Cheapest I could find and I will never run out of them
 
PFFFT, looks like a summer day in the Hamptons. Quit ya bellyaching!

I wouldn't ride in shorts and sandles.

I've put around 110km on my bike this month. Warmest December I've ever seen living here
 
Went for a 6 or 7 km ride, just long enough as my face and ears were getting pretty cold by time I got back. The temp was about 4 C 39 F. A lot warmer than GW's 25 F -4C Burr!
The bike sure likes these cool temps, running like a champ. Yah!

I did 20km in the fog a couple days ago. Was 4°C. Just have to dress accordingly. Was very comfortable
