    Drill holes in the tire

    I saw YouTube video of Matt Hunter creating his own bike studs by drill directly in the tire. He install huge screw on his downhill bike.

    How the heck did seal those holes to prevent air leaks?

    The tubeless sealant will take care of it.
    This summer a friend rode with an old rusty iron nail nailed into the tire for more than 30km.

    I bet I could become YouTube famous by creating problems that already have simple solutions and then coming up with dumb ways to dig myself out of the hole of stupidity I put myself in.

    I think the holes alone are a good idea.
    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    make sure you use the longest drill bit you can get. that way you don't have to worry about taking the tire off the rim

    I have done a similar thing with my helmet. I hate straps. They seem impossible to get adjusted. With couple 4" deck screws and a cordless drill my helmet stay put on my head and no uncomfortable straps.
