Be careful out there guys, the wind can sneak up on you and be very dangerous to ride aggressively in.

Agreed. It's awfully windy where I am & worse, we're esp susceptible to high(er) speed wind gusts (which IMO is even worse). There's oft times where I going along & suddenly, it's like I'm being pushed hard to one side. They're definitely sphincter moments that makes riding not very fun.

That said, I've recently discovered that the little Mten3 is best for riding in those particular condition where I'd definitely retire the big(ger) wheels. I don't know if its because of the slower speeds, or lower CG but it seems to handle windy condtions very well.
