Great question! The CTY 1.3 will make an AWESOME winter bike- especially because of the Gates belt drive- low maintenance, no mess, and no chain/derailleur to get clogged with ice and grime. Removing the rear wheel on this bike is a breeze- once the wheel is out of the frame, the drive belt will slip off the internal hub cog even more easily than a chain does.
Stop by your local REI Co-op- we'll be happy to walk you through the super-quick steps to removing/reinstalling a belt drive wheel as well as answer any other questions you might have!
Thanks for the great question!
