I realize the proof is in the pudding (as in..'get one together and see how it rides...' but I thought I'd ask.
My winter commute here in Madison has been the normal icy/snowy/sloppy. 7 miles round trip. I've been using an early 90's Trek 830 with Nokian studded tires. Perhaps it's just the switch from dry pavement to the ardurous washboard iced path. Or maybe the bike is just a dog (2nd year).
I'm wondering if going to a hybrid with 700C NOkians will give me a little easier mobility.
anyone go from a 26" MTN winter bike to a Hybrid/road with studded tires?
And did it make a diff?
I work in a volunteer bike repair shop (earn a bike) and there usually is a pool of schleppy Trek Mountain Traks et al that I can pick from.
