All-weather tires

Michelin Pro4 Grip
$70, Bike.michelinman.com

Michelin’s vast experience with tires in foul weather led the company to design the Grip with extra firm rubber and deep trenches to help the rigid tread punch through rain or snow to contact the road. Forget the common suggestion of running low tire pressure—this tire grips best at full pressure.

Road debris is going to find its way into every crevice. Rather than replace the cables and housing during the cold months, wait until spring breaks so they stay clean longer. The same goes for bar tape.
