Other riders often ask "what is a winter bike?". As opposed to any other sort of bike I suppose. Here's a blog on my two winter bikes ... ter-bikes/

The only thing that they do that might not work for all road bike riders is using quite large tyres. One of them has 42mm tyres on. The "winter" reason for this is that there are many "touring" type tyres that are only available in wider widths and these tyres are tougher and better for the poor winter conditions
