The Snow Tires are on the Bike-are you ready?
I put the snow tires on the 'cross bike. Did a couple of figure eights in the ice rink of a driveway that I currently have. Worked surprisingly well. Tomorrow's recovery ride will be attempted in the snow. I'll get my wife to take an Arctic Explorer picture when I get back. Hope I don't get hit by a car that can't stop. At least in the snow, I can just bail out into the snowbanks. It's no wonder you can't race 'cross with them. The carbide studs would take half your calf off if you hit someone w/ 'em. I had to take the fenders off, as the tires are too big. But I ordered some Planet Bike Hybrid Cascadians which should work. The long range forecast is not particularly encouraging.
