I'm looking forward to my second winter of sherpa biking here at 9,000 feet. Got about 2" of snow this morning that will probably melt by afternoon.
When is the best time to stud up? Last year, I bought my winter tires well into the snow season. Is it best to wait until snow and ice are hard-packed on the ground? Or should I put the studs on now? Hard to tell what's coming this year. Some years the snow doesn't really get going till Thanksgiving or Christmas.
