    Sad, sad IRO

    Poor old Mark V Pro. The roads are covered in snow and ice, so it's not getting ridden. I guess I can move the car out of the garage and practice trackstands and crap if I get desperate. Anyone make 25c studded tires? Haha!

    Nashbar has a 700x35 studded tires. If the IRO doesn't have clearance for those maybe try to use the skinniest Cyclocross knobbies you can find.

    Yeah. A half dozen huskies will give you all the traction you need. No brake required, just jump off the rear and yell woah.

    Your food bill may rise though.

    HOLY CRAP! I just took the Conti Twister Pros off my CX bike and they fit on the IRO. The back fits fine but the front rubs a little from my wheel being out of true. I think the Conti's are listed as 37c. I wonder what the true measurement is and if the Nokian or Nashbar 35c would fit. Time for some research....

    Coolness! I have a feeling the nashbars might be narrower than they advertise. Cheap tires often are. If you can call $30 tires cheap. Anyway I'd get em, and if they won't fit the IRO use em on the CX. I'm sure you'll have plenty of opportunity to use studded tires up there.

    I've seen more than one IRO built up with cyclocross tires. Don't give up for the winter. You should be able to figure something out. . .
