Are Urethene wheels slower in cold weather?

seemed a lot slower on my way to work this morning, does urethene suffer from cold snaps?


Buggered if I know!


im guessing no cause cold makes petroleum products more dense which should mean its harder and occupies a smaller volume.

Harder wheels usually roll faster.

was there a head wind?

Maybe it was so cold that the oil in your bearings started to freeze up?
