We had a couple of 30 below days in Ames 2 years ago. Found out the greas that comes in the freewheels wont handle temps that low, it gels and then trying to pull away from a stop it feels like the chain has come off. You can just spin and go nowhere. the LBS put some different grease in for the cold weather, the stuff one of the mechs used for Iditabike.
