It is useful to have multiple bikes to make it easier to have the right tires for he conditions. On the days when snow or ice is likely then studded tires are very useful. However many days will mearly be wet so its helpful to have a bike with full fenders and good commuting slicks. If you like you can get out the nice bike for those few days where the roads are dry but I find I leave my fair weather bike in the rafters until at least March.
This year I am thinking of using my Pugsley as my snow bike and my fixed touring bike as the everyday ride. The Pugsley makes studded tires unnecessary.
