Default Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

You know.....automotive tire weights are not a bad idea. You could pack more weight into a convenient package than you can with chain. Thanks. I'm gonna have to try that.

And, yes, stable wheels for the winter is what I've got in mind.

I've ridden motorized over hard packed snow and ice before. It's do-able. But I didn't feel entirely secure.

So I'm trying to adjust this bike. I swapped down to 24 inch wheels. Decided that I liked them, only to discover that studded 24 inch tires seem to be about as common as hen's teeth. So now I'm studding my own.

But, anyway, I'm now lower to the ground. And if I can make those wheels a bit more stable than they already are, then I don't think winter is going to be all that fearsome.
