Gear that keeps you going out in the winter.
#1
No I don't mean Charlie, speed or getting juiced, but more riding cloths or bike bits or accesories that keep you happy heading out on the trails in winter.
So here it is, list one thing at a time that works for you to keep rocking it out there. Again no being greedy just one thing at a time, let the other children have a go Wink
Here's my first one, bike washer. Idea being its so much easier getting it clean as soon as you've Finnished riding rather than not doing it at all or making it more work when it bakes on harder than the chocolate on a cold dime bar. Clean bikes in my bike mean it works better and parts lasts longer.
Iv a old nomad, that just runs off the 12v point on the car, great bit of kit adjustable Preasure and avalible spare parts.

Here's a couple of other options that Iv seen people use.

Another vote for the bike wash here, I've a mobi that does 2 bikes on a tank, it's great.

I curse the fact that I think I'm too cool to use a rear mudguard on every muddy ride too. Damn, I hate getting a wet,gritty crevice within 50m of the carpark
Keep it foolish...

Trousers! Keeps the water from going in the top of my Seal Skins stopping my feet getting wet and cold and keeping me happy Smile Also makes changing before driving home much easier as i'm not covered in mud. It's the little things Wink

For the first I me year winter Iv been wearing sealskin waterproof socks. Fantastic kit, even if at time water gets down the top they still keep your feet warmer like a wet suit does.
If your at the top end of a size I'd go for the size up as they don't stretch at all.
Come in different length to. Sexy knee highs I'm thinking for me next pair Tongue

I've got the knee highs too, they stop the water going down the top as the knee pads seal the top.

Overshoes are my other *get me out in sh*t weather* favorites.

They just fill with water though, i had some waterproof boots once and they were a complete waste of money.
