comment Hill climb riding position
@JFA Large riders have more weight. When they are standing on the drive they can either let there weight turn the cranks or use there upper body to pull the bicycle towards them, effectively your motive power is coming from gravity & your upper body. Smaller riders don't weigh as much so they don't have as much for gravity to grab on too 0o. When you are sitting on the saddle your hips back against the saddle & your legs are the source of the motive power on the drive.

comment What type of bicycle would be the most suitable for riding in winter in the city?
Agreed. Hydraulic Disk breaks are phenomenal! Although they can be quite an investment for a setup that will be constantly exposed to rather corosive conditions & maintenance can become rather complicated. (Also they require your wheel set to have special hubs with mounts for the disks.)
