    Studded Tires

    I'm looking to get a pair of the Marathon Winters, but I noticed the smallest size they have is 35mm. Will this be ok on my Mavic Ksyriums? I'm running 30mm's right now no problem, but I'm not sure what that extra 5mm will do. Thanks

    it'll be fine. I ran 35c nokians on CXP33 and CXP21 last year and had no issues.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Check this:

    If you're not riding with a psychedelic gecko on your shirt, you ARE having a substandard experience.

    They'll be fine. Just visit any cyclocross race and look at what they're running on rims similar in size to yours.

    I've run 1.9" tires, and even 2.2" tires, on rims narrower than your Ksyriums, incidentally (Matrix Mt. Aero).

    you can also take a look at the Nokian A10s, which are rated at 32mm, but Peter White measures them at roughly 29mm. check out: http://www.peterwhitecycles.com/studdedtires.asp
    they have fewer studs than the Schwalbes, but Nokians are excellent tires... those Finns know winter.
