I've had my eye's on some studded tires for a while now. Last winter, there was a huge thaw and then it all froze, creating a skating rink under all the snow. Being a utility fat bike rider, this caused me to stop riding for a few weeks and I kept wiping out on the ice. On a Facebook group, I asked what people thought of the studded tires and found someone who just upgraded from Dillinger 4 to 5's and luck would have it, they had not sold their Dillinger 4! So I now have what I think might be my best option for riding this winter.
I am actually a bit excited about winter coming now.. but I'm hoping I don't have to pop these on until late December.
