Celebrity Photo

The snow tongue was zero after this morning's ride. The streets and trails are in great shape.



While walking my kids home from school yesterday, I ran into a local cycling celebrity.

The camera flash shows he may have a reflective stripe tire on the rear. Is that a studded front, unstudded rear setup?

That sounds like a less burdensome setup than studs on both tires. Does anyone have an opinion on that?

That bike has cyclocross tires on it because Kevin McNamara at Hiawatha Cyclery says it's front and back studded tires or it's crap.

We learn something every day. I was pricing studded tires and it was just cut in half.

That is how I have always setup my bike for winter riding. Of course I haven't done it yet this year.
