Just got a new set of Nokian studded tires, was going to try and ride my 30 miles on pavement to set the studs, never got around to it. Now the snow is falling: can I get away with riding on plowed streets to set the studs? Does it have to be bare pavement?
Also, the tires are 42 mm 700c, can I get away with using 28mm - 42mm tubes? LBS doesn't have anything bigger.
Thank you very much for any thoughts or tips you may have.
