Studs Those are Schwalbe Snow Studs (700x38C’s).

They’ve been sitting in my garage for close to three months, waiting for winter to get here.  Finally it has arrived, with a bit of flurry today and dropping temps tonight.  The rest of the week looks to be colder, with highs in the low 30’s (F) and lows in the mid- to low-teens (F).

So that means that the ground, soaking from weeks of rain, is going to freeze.  Which will make for some interesting commutes to/from work.


(and yes, I did wash the bike after this pic was taken.)
