Studded tire blunders

Note to self: When spinning studded tire to listen for disc break rub, do not set tire down on wood, dinning room floor while the tire is still spinning.

Or an absent minded bare-hand tire grab to stop spinning.... BTDT...
I feel your pain...

Even concrete suffers from tungsten carbide stud contact. I was lubricating the chain in my garage and set the bike back down on the floor with the wheel still spinning and it gouged out a couple of lines in my cement floor.

Do not try to lean the bike on the kitchen tile it will slide with studded tires.

Thanks for the tip; I'm planning on buying studded tires soon, and we have wood floors.

don't run into any cars, because you'll scratch the paint!

Don't get your face to close too a spinning studded tire when checking brake pads for squareness against the rim.

Err..wasn't me, I know a guy who knows a guy.....

Another note to self: When putting together a pot of coffee, be sure to put the
coffee pot in place in the coffee maker to catch the coffee. I ran off to get a few
things done while the coffee was making and came back to quite a mess. Not as
expensive to clean up though as the first post.

The things that go wrong. (sigh)
