When I'm not bicycling, I'm a Linux SysAdmin. I'm on the board of my local bicycle advocacy group.

Bikes are my primary transportation. A 2009 Surly Long Haul Trucker, set up as a commuter and a 2012 Trek Ion CX. I also take the bus, but do not own a car.

Welcome to Bicycles! This answer really needs some more details, not just a link to a video. Maybe just describe the technique that's used in the video?

comment What is a thru axle?
@Ӎσᶎ Most of the through axles I've seen were quick-release and didn't involve an allen key. I don't know about you, but it takes me a few minutes to change a flat, so an extra second really wouldn't matter.

revised How can I bike in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada?
Picked a temp scale and ran with it. If I'm wrong it's "-50F (-45C)", and, really, there's not a lot of difference in how to handle temps below -40 on either scale.
