Foul weather riding on a folder?
By some bizarre luck I've managed to almost entirely avoid any seriously lousy weather since I got my folder a few months ago. I'm not worried about riding in the rain but I am thinking about what to do when Old Man Winter starts tooting his horn.
When I had an MTB and did a 3-mile commute each way some years ago, I almost always rode to work even in the snow (that was some of the most fun riding I've ever done). Now I commute on my Dahon SpeedPro which is decidedly un-MTBish. Are there any good ways of tricking it out for snowier conditions? (e.g. different tires)

How about a set of Primo V-Track II knobbies:

I'm planning for rainy season as well, and I'm looking to outfit my Swift folder to combat the elements.
I put fenders on my Dahon Matrix, and this year I might go with studded tires, although I have not decided on it for sure yet. All this could go out the window, however, if I decide to sell my Matrix. I just bought a road bike (non-folding), and I'm considering recouping some of my costs...but I hate to part with a bike!
