They're Everywhere!
They're Everywhere!

When I step away from my computer and Adventure Cycling work world for a while, there's always realizations that, "Oh, not everyone rides their bike to work. Oh, not every photo has a cyclist in it. Oh, look, this magazine isn't about bike touring at all," and so on. But this vacation was different.

How To Make Your Own Studded Bike Tires

With snow and ice abounding in Missoula, it would be so nice to ride a fat bike around, to officially participate in Fat Bike February. But the finances for a rad, new bike are just not in the cards this year. (And truth be told, if I buy one bike this year, it'll probably be this one.) So to stabilize my bike travel, I made my own studded tires! It was easier than I had imagined and I made a video to share this ever-rewarding do-it-yourself with you.
