Default Re: Is there any risk in keeping your bike outside in extreme cold?

Aaarrrgghhh!!! Frozen cables! yes......

one of the curses of winter riding.

We're just coming out of a deep freeze here. I had one brake cable freeze up. No big surprise there. But my U-lock also froze solid.

That's something else to watch our for.

I had to drive to work for two days because of that. Day #1 I probably would have driven anyway. The roads were just too dangerous to be bicycling. But I probably would have ridden my bike on day #2. But it took me that long to get my bicycle unlocked.
