Damn! They were riding at *65 degrees below zero*, and changed a flat at -40 degrees! Read the part
about frozen-solid rubber innertubes. Anybody know if tubeless tires would work at that temperature?
I'm betting they'd fail (since the rubber hardens up).

OK, I'll never complain about Midwestern US winters again.

Well, I've lived most of my life in sunny Southern California. This is the first year living in
Chicago and I went for a ride on Friday - 18 miles, -1F. I think that's my limit! I can't even
imagine -65F!

I have to admit I could have been better dressed, but I can feel that the grease is thicker and the
overall resistance of the internals is greater.

Cool, no pun intended. I actually live up here in Whitehorse, the
beginning/end of the Yukon Quest. It got pretty cold here last week we were
seeing -40F/C weather and colder. I like biking but I can't see myself out
there in that weather.
