No, we're not talking about ourselves (though we could be :) ).  We have a big jar 'o studs in the back of the shop that we use to build up studded winter tires for better traction on ice.  They don't work with every kind of tire (more than anything we need reasonably sized knobbies to screw the studs into) but we'll do our best to build the right tire for you.

We have a few pre made for you to take a look at, and of course we also have prefab studded tires from a few of the manufacturers out there that make them (more about that in the next posting).  

Whatever flavour you choose now is a great time for studs.  With the warmer temps and lack of snowfall the precipitation we have received has mostly turned into a nice layer of slick ice on the trails and side roads.  Not fun.  Well, it's all fun but the falling.
