Took mine off last week. So quiet now! I'm no longer reminded of Rice Krispies when I ride.

I commuted without studs for the first time this year. It's amazing how fast, smooth, and quiet slicks seem after grinding the studs a couple months.

I like to wait until the end of breakup and get a new set of really nice smooth tires. The transition is very much like taking a 100 lb. backpack off. I can suddenly fly.
