How To Make Your Own Studded Bike Tires

Dec 7th, 2022

With snow and ice abounding in Missoula, it would be so nice to ride a fat bike around, but maybe you don’t have one and a rad, new bike just isn’t in the cards this year.

To stabilize your own bike travel, you can make your own studded tires! It’s probably easier than you imagine. Rachel Stevens made a video to share this ever-rewarding DIY with you.

For this do-it-yourself, you will need:

  1. Set of bike tires
  2. About 200 ¼" pan-head screws
  3. Drill
  4. Screwdriver
  5. Tire Liners

Special thanks to Josh Tack, Evan Smith, Winona, and Patrick for their collaboration and support.
