    Grip Studs - Install, Ride & Discount (video)

    I had the opportunity to stud my fat bike tires with Grip Studs and they gave me a heck of a lot more stability on ice. Even increased the snow traction. They will also work on "skinny" tires and I even popped a couple in my riding boots.

    Check out the install and ride vids.

    Until the end of February 2014 Grip Studs will offer a 10% discount on orders of 300 or more GST1000s (bicycle grip studs) + tool. Just look for the special code at the end of the video and quote it at the time of ordering.

    Cheers

    Seems like a much better idea than pan head screws!

    Its more expensive, but it saves the tire.

    But at almost a buck each? Like Schwalbe replacement studs.

    On that latter point, with 330-stud tires MSRPing for $100, I think there is a business plan to be made for becoming a studded tire disassembler and reseller.

    That's a deal, curious where you found those 330-stud tires for $100?! The Grip Studs look like the real deal but I agree, at $1/pc it makes more sense to splurge on studded Dillingers...

    I have the Dillinger and they have 240 places for studs. I can pretty much buy a studded tire at that price.

    If you are a 26er, CRC has the ice spikers (300) for $75 and the ice spiker pros (360) for $100. Wiggle has the 29ers for $116

    I actually got mine for less because I bought them in April a few years back.

    Ok I thought we were talking about fat bike tires. At $75 those ice spikers sound great for a skinny tire setup. Unfortunately for fat bikes I only know of the Dillingers that come studded and they are $220+/tire. I have a spare set of 27tpi Nates that I might just stud with self-tapping screws if I decide not to go tubeless on the fatty...
