Aerostich tire studs make winter MORE fun.

Winter has been real wintery, hasn't it? All the snow and ice have cut down on my riding time, so I decided to do something about it. Ordered some very small self-tapping studs from the fine folks at Aerostich.
Got them installed and while I might not be ready to ice race, me and my XT550 can handle the commute to work and riding around the neighborhood now.





Here is a view of the rear tire with studs installed.


First real test - can we make it up this hill on an ice covered dirt road?

Yup - the rear end wiggles around some, but we made it.


Roads like this pavement with ice/snow are a piece of cake.
