Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?
Yes, mogollonmonster, my road conditions do change. I ride on some decent pavement. But I also ride gravel shoulders and surfaces that aren't far short of 'cross country'.
I have a couple of sets of manufactured studded tires for my pedal bike.
And for my motored bike, I'm making a set of studded tires right now. The studs are outside enough that they're at nearly a 45 deg angle from the centerline. I'm passing them through the lugs for strength. And I'll be cutting them off something a bit less than 1/8 inch from the surface of the lug. No doubt I'll lose a stud from time to time.
But if I lose enough to worry myself, then I'll just pull the tire and replace missing studs. That'll be easy enough.
