Wow Ak, that is quiet a range of temperature? I could totally ride with 30F or even 20, but surely -30F would me make and the bike struggle... I have written to garbing to ask an advise of what I should need to buy for those temperature, as I am not a big heated vest fan and certainly not experience about the right products to buy.
I normally ride patagonia with jeans and goretex pants and a tshirt + jacket with laynet. I am not really a worried about the cold, but at -30 I have never been.
Any recommendations?
