    I'm well! Looking forward to spring.........

    I ended up buying my Winters locally last night for $70 each. Calhoun Cycles in Uptown (I never go there but they carry "boutique" cycling stuff). But it also meant I got to inspect them before buying.

    Mounting tonight in order to ride in the snow tomorrow morning.

    Just thought I might catch some people who hadn't bought some yet. I didn't explicitly check all the bike shops in St. Cloud for stock, but I highly doubted any of them would stock winter tires.

    Weren't they always carbide studs? I rode mine a lot last year and the studs held up extremely well. EMS now stocks them for $70 too.
    Every time we let a vehicle pass there is a little bit of compromise. But compromise allows the city to function and allows cyclists to function in the city. The trick is not to eliminate compromise but to learn how to work safely within it.

    From Peter White,

    Q: You used to say that only Nokian made good studded tires. Why have you changed your tune and are selling Schwalbe?

    A: Schwalbe used to specify steel studs for their studded tires. Now they have carbide studs, just like Nokian, so I'm now happy to sell Schwalbe studded tires as well as Nokian. We've been selling many other Schwalbe tires for several years now (see my web page) and the quality is terrific. We've been very happy with the quality of the Schwalbe studded tires.

    That was years ago. I don't know why he still keeps that piece of text on his website.

    The Marathon Winter wasn't even made at that time IIRC.
