I had to take my car for grocery shopping today, and the ice and snow on the roof of my car melted, flowed down my windscreen and froze again. So, a huge chunck of solid ice covered my windscreen, I couldn't even see the wiperblades. It costed me a while to get the car ice-free.

Yeah, me too, I don't have to de-ice my bike, though it has a layer of ice on it after 15 kms

I heard it destroys your wiper blades. And I'm not sure if a de-icer really works on a big chunk of ice that's 10 centimeter thick.

They are expensive, but they last for a very long time. For next ones I plan to buy Bosch Aerotwin, as they're flatter.

Somewhere here, I'm not sure which mountain exactly, although I've been there a few times.
