Just throwing caution that street tires (with no deep groves to find traction) on loose stones (like the tar/chips we get in Pa.) are pretty much equal to riding on ice.
Most guys aren't like us (ride in the snow/ice) to be used to really slippery conditions so....
I consider most guys who have to ask these questions to be newbies with no real experience, and would rather they stay alive and with us for a little while.
When you were a newbie...would you have dreamed you could do what you now do with ease? (I didn't mean to sound like doom...just caution!)
