I'm going to be commuting this winter on my Trek L200. We don't get tons of snow here in STL, but we do get ice. Plus, they don't plow the side streets in the city, so compacted snow that goes through a few freeze/thaws can stick around for weeks in the shadows of buildings. Anyway, I'm thinking that studded snow tires might be cheaper than upping my disability insurance.
I've looked at the Nokians, but they don't seem to have a reflective stripe or dynamo strip on the sidewall (I use the bottle generator on my L200, plenty of light for in the city). The Schwalbe Snow Stud tires look like they do have both of these, but I've also read that the rolling resistance is pretty high. Plus the studs are only on the outside, which may not be much use to me when trying to stop.
Anyone know of some more options or if Nokian makes tires with a reflective stripe and a dynamo strip?
