    Two days of freezing rain thursday and friday and black ice. No way I'd do that without studs. Everything was covered with a shell of ice. Even gravel and dirt were slick. It seemed melted Saturday.....

    I'd be worried more about some sort of mechanical cold related failure than losing digits to frostbite. Did a -10 actual temperature morning commute last Wednesday. It was otherworldly. When my...

    After today I see that your set up offers another advantage, it takes the guess work out of the equation. As in "Which bike to ride today, studded or non?"

    Picked the wrong one this morning! Very...

    Is the Defy a terribly expensive model?

    I paid more than I really could afford for my Trek road bike (one series)- but everytime I take it out it was clearly worth it.

    BD does have some good deals. I have owned one of their road bikes for a while, and have put on about 1000 miles on it. Nice ride. Everything works spiffy.

    That's good you knew your limit and didn't force the issue. I'd have drove in under those conditions too. Fresh snow is tough! After it's packed down by traffic it becomes much easier.
