(sorry to cross post this from Winter... I only wanted to post here and accidentally.. what evah)
Effectiveness of 700C studded tires vs. 26" studded tires:
I'm already looking ahead to next years winter bike. My mid-80's Trek 890 (a freebie!) converted to 3-speed internal was okay... frame is just a bit too small, and I found I'm old enough to want/need a couple more speeds at times. I have found a freebie tour-ish no-name roadie, canti brakes, that looks good for a commuter conversion...
Question: I've always had 26" studded tires (MTN style winter bikes). What is the opinion or efficacy ($65 word!) of 700C studded tires vs. 26" tires. I would have to buy a new pair of studs that size... or keep looking for a better sized MTN for next winter
