My Nokian extreme 294 tires arrived today so after work I put them on and also added fenders. It took longer than expected as I did it out in my shed which didn't have the best lighting and there's no heat. I took the bike out for a quick spin at about 1am on ice and snow covered roads the temp was about 18 degrees. I live in upstate NY. I was very impressed with the tires and never came close to falling. I attempted to put on new pedals, but my wrench broke so I decided to wait until tomorrow to change them as it was late. I installed a PB superflash also. Anyway the Nokain tires are really impressive. I never used studded tires before so it's a cool new experience to me. I will take a few pics of my winter bike tomorrow and post them here.
