I'm just starting winter riding and have no heavy mountain biking escapades in my past. Right now I commute. With the snow/ice on my new Nokian m&gs I find myself squirreling around a little and wonder whether my lack of confidence is me just learning the ropes or if the m&gs are lacking punch. So many posts here talk about fabulous performance. I am thinking as a newbie I probably should have sprung for the more aggressive/expensive Nokian 294s. But I didn't. I'm going to deflate the m&gs a bit and try that,
But I'm really curious to hear about the learning curve among those of you who have ice biked for a while.
