    yeah, but i dont think studs are going to help out on those trails. they are so cratered from people walking the trails that it would be almost impossible not to have the tires slipping into the ruts, studs or not.

    so im guessing that everything is as iced as tosa....

    I've been riding my local trails in Kenosha with and without studs (much better with). The deeply cratered iced hiker sections are rideable with studs, it's just a really rough bumpy ride and very slow going. Without studs, I walked just about anything that looked like hard ice. The recent light snow helped to smooth things out a little bit, but it also hides the ice, so I wouldn't go out without studs right now.
    Looks like that's all going to change tomorrow though (more snow in the forecast).
