Ok, went riding yesterday, as I havn't had the bike out in abour 7 weeks. Forks came back from MX-Tech, and I got all my new stuff on from the sponsors. 26 degrees, ice all over the track. Went down 3 times simply from losing the front end, even though I was sitting/standing on the rear fender. I guess it doesn't matter how far back you stand/sit on ice, it's not mud! SO, with a race next weekend, (Hare scramble) and about 4" of snow still in the woods, snow coming down now, and surely some heavy ice out there (hasn't been above freezing - heck, even out of the 20's - in almost three weeks), I plan on studding an old pair of tires that I have around. Any recommendations?? I was going to find a good length to allow about 1/2" of screw sticking out of the tread. SO, I need to run to Lowes, and buy a box of screws. Just curious to see if anyone studded their own tires, how long of a screw did they use, and any recommendations for the process. I don't have 300+ dollars for a set of Trelleborgs...so the home studding option is the way to go.
