I'm a French student going to Sweden for one year and I would like to know if I could use a bike to go to school even in winter for less than 150€ (or 1500 SEK).
Is it possible without having a bad time when riding and or will I fall every five seconds due to icy roads?
If it's possible I would like to know which type of bike should I use and if I have to add accessories like studded tires or tire chains.
Here's an average weather of the city:
And some details about my route:
