Ryland, the only times I use my car is for going shopping "not the weekly groceries" and to go home for holiday. I put on less than 2,000 miles/year. I also ride my bicycle to work/class each day. Even on the nearly coldest days, it's not bad at all. If you wear proper gear - snowpants, gloves, hats, coat, boots, you're fine until about -35 windchill F, and even then, It just hurts on the cheeks. I'm always reminded of the efficiency of modern insulators. The joy's of living in a 1950's apartment

P.S. I'd love some info on your winter setup, mine pushes horribley bad, it's caused me to dork it into several snow banks, as well as staright up whiff it dodging cars, and one one occasion running smack into a piggy who decided he deserved the right of way, even thought he had a stop sign... after all who's gonna ticket him, after smashing into his passenger window, he smiled and drove away, ****ing pigs...
