Since some of our VeloReviews.com members got an early taste of snow, I thought I would mention a good resource for learning about studded bicycle tires.
Check out the studded tires page at Peter White Cycles. It will help you figure out what kind to get. And if your LBS does not carry them, your can always order them from Peter. I haven’t tried them. I only missed 2 or 3 days riding last winter because of snow or ice. It is hard to justify a set for that little use, but one of these years I might do it just for fun.
