Studding your own tires will save you money and help you grip the snowy roads this season. This is a hands-on session to prepare a studded tire for winter cycling. Learn how to put sheet metal screws into your tire and add a layer to protect your tube from being popped by the screw heads. We’ll discuss how the studded tire works for you and whether you should do one or both tires.
Bring your own tires, buy some used ones from BikeWorks or buy new ones. Tire cost is extra (i.e. not included in course fee, but most used tires cost just $5). Screws will be provided.
