    Exclamation Water + cold = ice + track bike = sad face



    It's getting to be that time (in CT) where night time temps are below freezing. If your track bike runs straight water...now is the time to drain it out and replace with antifreeze.

    The 150 miles I put on my bike this year was definitely not worth switching over to water wetter to now have to switch back to coolant :-( Thanks for the reminder

    I keep the tank full and leave it in the garage or shed. Much less likely to rust that way.
