I live in Omaha, NE (USA), and have fond memories of riding my various mountain bikes to work and back roughly 10-15 years ago. Winter riding was a rush. I have a lot of respect for folks who are willing to brave the elements and traffic on their bikes.

What is the traffic like where you ride?

I am impressed with your bike, by the way. What kind of maintenance work is involved to keep it in trustworthy shape?

It sure is. But a bit overkill for commuting now as there's not much snow here this winter.
