There might be a bike shop in Winnipeg that has something of use in the cold. I don't know how much winter riding there is at the university there. In Saskatoon, they bike on campus no matter how cold it is, and in droves. In Regina, on campus, the only bikes you see on campus in the winter are those that were abandoned in the fall when someone got stranded there in the first snowfall of the season. wink

Rumor has it that the latest iteration of Phil's Grease is AeroShell 33 or Mobilgrease 33, both are Boeing-approved grease. Phil Wood is tight-lipped about this.

There used to be a tool to flush out a Shimano freehub, the maker of that tool died a while ago. I've had luck with a WD-40 flush and Penetro 90 afterwards. I think even MaxLife ATF/Dex VI/Merc LV/Toyota WS will also work.

Youtube is your friend wink


He has whole section about how to DIY tools for anything on bike...




I know what are you talking about... Search for "free-hub buddy" or "freewheel injector tool"...

Today was a good test - the freehub was fine @ -40 C. However, Jr's front wheel had a flat. I picked up the bike from the university, brought it home (I was NOT fixing a flat outside, even with the temperature having staggered up to -36 or whatever by then) and found that the valve stem (Presta) had completely separated from the tube. Time for a new tube. That was a first for me - I wonder if the failure was caused by the cold. crzy

I love how he talks about -40 like it's old hat. It was 5 degrees here on Long Island this morning and people were losing their minds. News was talking about the extreme cold. I guess they don't realize people live in it.

When we lived in New Zealand for a year, we met an older couple who had moved there from Norway. We asked them whether they'd acclimatized in reverse to the very temperate Northland climate. They said they'd found winter no problem for the first two years, and thereafter had found the winters cold. (A typical winter low was +4 C [c. 40 F], with highs in the teens [c. 60 F]. We saw frost one day only. We found it very mild by comparison to Winnipeg.)

So, I guess one gets used to anything. I'm sure if I lived on LI I'd find +5 F (c. -16 C) pretty cold too!

If it's sunny and there's no wind, a cold ambient temperature isn't bad, as long as you don't have to, for instance, work on your car.
