Installed last night and did a commute this morning. The only real issues with the installation were that the bead is tight
, and I couldn't get them seated properly. A search of the mechanics forum informed me I should overpressurize the tires. I tried that, nervously pumping to 90PSI, and after a bit of tire-massaging, they popped right into place. No problems.
Much less rolling resistance than the "stock" knobby tires. Quieter, too. Not much ice to play on but plenty of snow. They did fine. I understand about the overconfidence thing. No worries.
