Try maneuvering and stopping in the snow and or ice at a speed greater than 10 MPH on bicycle tires and you will literally be taking your life in your hands. Especially if approaching a stop light or stop sign on a motor powered bicycle with bicycle tires on it. That's not a rumor. It's just simple physics. LOL
The contact patch with the road from a bicycle tire will get you killed at speed in adverse road conditions. It's not a matter of if, but only when. The faster you go, the wider that patch has to be, especially when stopping. That applies to anything with tires on it.
