    Do you own an HD TV

    Don't buy a smart TV , they aren't smart. Many don't even have access to some major streaming services like Amazon. Or their agreements change and what they have today they might not have in a year or two. Just get the latest Roku, they have agreements with almost ever service, over 4500 in all.

    Fat Bikes

    Nic pics Ironhippy. No snow is CT yet, well about 1/2 inch this morning that is already melted. Are you running studded tires? I'm m trying to decide if its worth the expense. I can get studded Vee Snowshoe XLs for about $250.00 pair. 45Nrth Dillingers are much more $$.
