Hi from Winter and Vintage Rider in Minnesota

I found these forums looking for info on an old 70's Peugeot my wife found and would like to ride in a short triathlon. Not that it's a great bike for that purpose, but it's probably better than her MTB. I have an 80's Peugeot which I'll be riding. It's only slightly better suited.

Aside from that I commute year round and I'd like to get some tips for better winter riding. I've used studded tires on my mountain bike but I'm wondering if I wouldn't be better off with something thinner to cut through the slop on the roads after a new snow instead of sliding around on top if it.

Anyway the folks around here seem really helpful and hopefully I can contribute too !
