The Nokian Rollspeed W is another soft rubber, non-studded winter option.

The Michelin Stargrip looks like it could be a bit squishy on dry pavement.

I'm not finding a single mention of this on bike forums. I'm not finding a single review on the internet anywhere!

No one's used one?

Yeah I don't get it either. I'd say it has 2000 miles on it? I rode it on salty roads last week, but until then it saw no salt.

Thanks. But I'm reading that the cones are probably also trashed.

How would this happen after 2 years? Maybe it wasn't sealed up properly and water got in?

2 year old Shimano 105 5700 front hub not smooth.

I just noticed that my front shimano 105 hub isn't rolling very smoothly. It's a bit crunchy/chunky/gritty when I spin it in my hand.

When they get to this point is it worth trying to service...

People claim it's higher, but is it really?

I want to try cyclocross once to see if I love it or hate it. I might hate it.

I have a cross bike with 35c panaracer T-serv's. Should I buy tires with tread, or go with the T-serv's?
