Nice, you tell the wife " Oh, that old piece of crap, I am just holding onto to that one for Ed".

My trials bike was a loaner.

If anyone would like to try some winter studded tire riding. I got this from akarob a few years ago, never mounted it, probably never will:

You're going to need a good liner to prevent the screw heads from working holes into your tubes. I found that a few layers of heavy canvas type fabric did a decent job. Ive since gotten the real carbide stud type, but that will let you try it out and see if winter trail riding is something you want to pursue.

I think I still have the liner you gave me to try with it (i also "siliconed" the inards, not sure if that will help at all). just need to find it in my messy garage (this winters project).
