Have studded the front tire now because I already had a slip on the ice (in my defense, I have a VERY steep driveway). Had the mental image of going down with kids aboard during the http://localhost/mb/topic/chanukah-parade/
(also see the official announcement:
Thing is, the screws protrude quite a bit. Not more than the pictures you see online of people doing the same, but still. I imagine traction will be much better when they protrude less, but as is, I'm not sure it's ridable down the driveway in it's current state, it needs some ice to have something to "bite".
My question for others who've done this is, is, how, if at all, did you change your riding with studded tires, especially if they were diy and the studs were too long when new (I bought the shortest screws I could fine, 1/2in)? You can safely grind things in while the road is still clear, right?
