Default Re: Thinking of motorizing straight on through winter

Yes, Dan. I have seen that thread and it's a good one. I'll go ahead and look it over again, too.

Someone, I think it's Killer Canuck, mentioned that making your own studded tires is tedious. I'll testify. I started making one a few years ago. I never finished it. It gets very, very tiring.

Also I was worried about my ability to keep the screw heads from wearing holes in the tube. Can be done, no doubt. But I suspected that it would be another headache. For a mere $50.00, I'd rather have one ready-made dropped on my porch.

Not that I mean to be discouraging; this is a great project for those who are a bit more hardcore DIY'ers than I am.
