    Grip Stud Group Buy

    I will put together a group buy, needs to be minimum of 1000 studs. I will purchase 300.

    I would ship by USPS small flat rate box cost, divided cost of stud shipping from manufacturer and PayPal fee if money is not gifted.

    For anyone leery of doing this, there is some decent demand for these sometimes. I organized a successful group buy in the past, I think there have been two buys so far? Can't remember. I have enough on hand so I'm out this one. They're expensive but they last and they are easier than other DIY studding techniques.

    I would think you would gorilla glue them in ? They would likely come out easier because of the finer thread to hold them in the knobbies??

    I bought and was charged for $20 worth of those from justsockets.com a month or so ago. I never got the product and I can't get them to respond to email or phone calls. Buyer beware, it was only $20 so I'm not spending a lot of time trying to recover the cash I guess.

    I'm interested in 100 but I think I need the $11.95 manual install tool (4000-M). It wouldn't make sense to buy the tool and pay shipping through grip studs separately.

    Can the group buy include purchasing the 4000-M and paying the extra amount for it, or is installation without it easy? The power tool bit would also be OK if we needed to buy in some type of "bulk".

    I assume a check is the preferred payment method.

    I'm going to experiment with rock riding. It was over 80 degrees here today so there isn't any ice.

    They are 75 cents each, thats a 25% discount plus a bit of shipping. Yes, they are expensive but nothing will come even close to their durability and bite, they go in easy and they don't come out, rarely anyway as long as they have good depth like Bud and Lou tire lugs to thread into.

    I would recommend no less than 100 per tire, 150 per would be optimal. They weigh 65 grams per 100.

    Set screws will not stay in and sheet metal screws have big heads. The whole point of true tire ice studs is they are tungsten carbide pins that are significantly harder than any screw you might use. The pins are very thin allowing them to easily penetrate ice given the overall weight of you and the bike. Sheet metal screws have large heads and don't bite very well and once you hit the pavement or rocks, they wear quickly and get smooth. Grip studs have a fairly large screw body with deep sharp threads and a flat base so they hold in well and resist puncturing the inner casing of the tire unlike screws. Screws are fine for motos, different animals all together in application.

    If you're interested let me know and I'll get a list going. You won't be disappointed !

    Yes, the install tool should be used for best results, I agree. Let me know which one, the are two, one is a screw driver style the other has a hex that can go in a drill, not recommended or put that one in your own hand tool.

    So payment, PayPal is easiest but at a cost of nearly 3% or you can gift it and there's no charge. Checks are sort of OK, you know what I mean ! Would rather not but probably will. I can take CC's but that is 3% added too.

    I have been lurking on here for a while because I liked what I have been learning. Tonight I saw about the group buy and registered so I could say I would like to get either 125 or 100 studs along with the hand tool. I can pay with paypal if that is easiest for you. I was not sure what you meant by gifting? If it meant calling the payment a gift then that would be OK with me. If you already have your number Owell. And thanks for taking the effort to put it together.

    I need to keep the order to denominations of 100, I've got two here that want a quantity that ends in 50, that makes 100 so that's OK.

    PayPal charges the seller 2.9% unless that money is stated as a gift. That means I am not charged the fee if "gifted"

    So I'll take all orders as long as the total number come out to a number that can be divided by 100. I won't order until next week sometime. Need to get everyone sorted out and confirm the order with Grip Stud.
