    Strap on Studs!

    I am wondering why, in this age of kick-starter and a thousand options from China, no one has bothered to develop studded snow straps for bikes. Yeah, this is a micro market, but many use kick-starter to fully fund their products on an ongoing basis, so micros are not exactly risky ventures anymore.

    I dream of being able to ride fast on urban rubber on my way in to work, and spending 5 minutes to mount some studded strap style ice/snow 'chains' for the ride home when the weather has rolled in.

    The past 2-3 years has seen an explosion in development of new snow chain style products for passenger vehicles and motorcycles. Why have we been left out in the cold?

    Honestly I think that a properly studded fast tire (low profile stud counts) will be as effective as throwing on any sort of "chain" or grip socks on the tire. That's probably why no one went trough the trouble of doing something of the sort because they quickly realized that the first option is best in every way.

    chains for bikes have been around longer than some here have been alive as have studded tires. It just seems to me that chains aren't the best idea. No matter what you use, the wheels have to come off. You're half way there. Just put the studded tires on and be done with it. Or some seriously knobby tires. Or both

    My studs work great on lice and light snow. Slow going over 2 inches.. Might have to put al at least my front on tonight as we have an icy rain on the way for central Ohio
