Aaaaah Derek why do you enjoy torturing me like that ?  HaHa!

Actually, we've been having an unusually mild winter and the snow has been gone for a while now.  But it's still fairly cold and we get snow every now and then so every time it looks like it will be riding season soon, they spread more salt on the roads and then we know it will take at least two or three good rainy days before anyone can think of getting out.

We shouldn't complain though, last year at this time, we had to shovel the snow out of the livingroom window so that the kids could see outside.  The snow in front of our house was up to my shoulders.  We had snow until the middle of May!  Let spring 2016 come faster !

Do these set back and rise? I just put the 2" on mine the other day and made a good difference.

Yes FTB530, they are the 2 inch pull back risers... because I have short arms.  Can't wait to have them on the bike!

Southern Ontario has had the same... Snow is long gone and I actually got out last Saturday in 15C weather for my first 14 ride.  Only about 125 km but Wow!

But the cold is back, hovering around freezing tonight and not much warmer over the weekend.... but no snow... well none that will need to be shoveled or last!  I feel safe enough to take the snow tires off the van.

BTW I did the AST 2" risers with the seperate pull back.... got a extra 1/4" that way but for a different reason... I'm tall and and further away from the handle bars.  They did make a big difference.

Wow, nice difference!  It won't be as noticeable on my bike because it will be lowered and the forks will be adjusted accordingly.  Only the set back will be noticeable.

You guys in the city have all the luck, I live on a dirt road in Mount Forest and could only enjoy the nice weather by looking at it last weekend. When the frost starts coming out of th road this time of year you can barely stand up on it let alone drive a bike. Hoping to get up to the Blue Mountain area Easter weekend.
