    I have a similar spectrum of studded tires spread across 3 bikes, though I acquired mine over time. Nice to have options depending on road conditions.

    The weather here has been too balmy to get into fat bike mode yet. No snow and temperatures pushing close to +10C for the next week. So I might as well take advantage and keep doing longer rides on...

    Same thing happened to me when I ordered a non-folding studded tire. They probably used DHL because of the size in that case. My hit wasn't as big as yours but it was still in the neighborhood of...
