Paul Mondor used those studs for his cross Canada ride last January, and swears by them.

He also claimed that they extended the wear on his tires.

He using them on TKC80's , BTW.

Hope this helps
Thanks very much for this extremely helpful post. Based on your recommendation I'm about to order the scooter B studs for the TKC80's I plan to use for commuting this winter (on days when the roads are mostly clear, but there's always some snow and the chance of ice patches).

I was wondering - the Aerostitch kit comes with 100 studs. This was enough to do the 1-2 pattern of the center knobs for both tires? It sounds like a second order would be needed to do the outer knobs. Do you still feel like it's worth it?

Thanks again,

Rick

This thread has been extremely helpful. Any more updates or opinions? I'm in the same boat - commutting on either a r1200gs or a hacked VStrom. Mostly expressway and dry pavement, but patches of black ice hear and there. I will need to get a new set of tires if I want to use the studs, so I have some options. If I put these on the sidecar rig, I won't have to stud the sides of the tires.

Maybe I will give Aerostitch a call tomorrow and see what they have to say.

Weeee, now I am definitely sold. Need new tires anyways, will just hurt to buy yet another pair next spring when I store away the new winter tires.

It just hurts when you have to leave the bike home just because of a little snow...

We ordered a set for our trip to MO.. sort of a 'just in case' thing.. The weather wasn't looking too cooperative and we didn't want to get stuck between VA and MO just bc of a little snow/ice.. Hopefully we won't have to use them, but if we do we'll post up on how they worked.

update

My studs have been coming out if the tire spins. I drilled and installed regular studs in the front tire they work well. I will drill and mount 10mm studs in my tires next fall. I will have some screw in studs on hand for the fall ride, if I don't have my studded tires on before then. Remember they work well as long as you don't spin that tire.

Hrm.



That probably makes them a no-go for me, at least on the rear.

I have run the off road studs before I bought Trelleborg tires. They work fine if you don't spin the tire. Other wise they will pull out at some point.

I was looking at the AeroStich studs too and they mention on the page that sells them (reviews area):

"I you try the shorter ones in the future, these can be glued in using Loctite 480, 496, or Cyberbond 1008, 1070, or 2243. Instructions for doing this are included with the studs now. -Customer Support"

Video installing ICE studs, manually and with electric tool

Adventure riders Sjaak and Doris are using the Best Grip studs on an "ICE ride". They are on the road NOW (Feb 28, 2009), and should be almost to Prudhoe Bay.

When they were at our shop preparing, we worked out a way to install the studs manually (with a simple compact tool that Sjaak and Doris will carry). You will see how easily the studs are inserted! Sjaak was already carrying the golf ball, so it is part of his tool kit. Don't ask.



And here is another video way up north, in heavy snow and ice.
