Riding in snow is not bad, leave plenty of room for stopping and between you and other vehicles. Ice on the other hand is bad news! Be cautious and dress appropriately!
hey guys and gals....i plan on riding my teedubb everyday...winter is coming on and was wandering if anyone had any suggestions on riding on a snowcovered paved road or packed snow as well.....any information would be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks in advance and God Bless!
Get a better front tire than the stock. A Shinko SR422 would do. If you're getting on ice, get a spare set of tires and stud them. Hippo hands or (my preference) brush guards would be nice. Roll starts stop being a good option in the snow, so a kickstart is helpful, especially for the random dead battery.
I'm a big fan of having two or three sets of wheels with different tires for different situations.
You can 'try' something like this to get a 'feel' for the effectiveness of studs. A box or two of these at the local hardware store should run about $12 and likely last a season. Should you end up feeling comfortable riding through the Winter, then you can invest in a second set of wheels and officially stud them. This made a big difference for me when walking on icy sidewalks. The screws were easy to put in and take out. Suspect the knobs on your tires are thick enough that penetration to the tube is unlikely as would be any significant issues with balance (all my opinion). Gerry
Take care my Friend.........
Guess there is a reason i live in socalif. This does not sound fun at all.
Tusk mitts!! They will go over the tusk handguards and they are only $16
