Just noticed this today. This is the 3rd winter for these tires. As I was putting the bike on the rack after a ride today I noticed that I'm beginning to see the bases of the studs on their holes. Seems like the studs could easily get torn out of their sockets. Think I could get another winter out of these skins?
Mine are into their 3rd season and haven't lost one yet but....
They use so much salt on the roads here this season mine is showing some rust. I leave my bike in a bike locker overnight at the train station so I can't easily clean it off. How do you guys deal with this? Let 'em rust!
OP: sorry to steal a little of your post
