Studded tires would be nice

Took about an hour for the 14 mile commute this AM. Nerve racking ride with blowing wind, icy roads, and occassional stupid drivers. But you'll have that. I love this stuff! Went with gears today and am glad when it came to plowing small drifts. Bike today is an older Diamond Back Voyager II, not in its original state, save the solar ray deflector. Tires were Vermin 1.95 that actually kept my rubber side up, however studded tires would have been preferred. Anxious for the ride at 5!


Mini-rant- I adjust my route to stay on the less travelled gravel roads for my commute and when I need to take pavement, I stay on the unforgiving gravel shoulder- always. So what the heck is up with people honking at me. They should be paying attention to the road and maybe slowing down a hair....
