2014/15 ice riding thread.

It's that time of year again.

There's already ice on the pond, frost on the punkin and very little dicky dun,,,,,,,what the fuck?

Who's got a new set up?

Who's gonna give it a try for the first time?

At this rate we'll be riding by Christmas.

Holla!

Help a neophyte out...

Nate, will you please advise on specific recommendations (ie manufacturer) for studded tires? What tire/rim/stud dimensions are known to fit in the 500EXC/Husaberg platform?

Also, what is needed beyond normal dirt riding equipment? Long underwear and nerves of steel I imagine, but what else?

Alright just kidding.

I don't think you can go wrong with a set of these....
Pricey but worth it.

Thats what I use and I'm very happy with them.
He's great to talk to on the phone, I'd call him and tell him what you are looking to do.

Important to check that you have ample clearance to the swing arm when you install studs. When the tire moves and flexes you sure don't want it chewing into that pretty swingarm. You can make clearance by swapping sprockets/gearing.

"canadian" studs are longer and bite better when the ice gets chewed up and slushy. The shorter standard length ones work better I think when the ice is in decent shape. Pick your poison.

Give us a primer for those who have never tried this? Bikes, gear, tires, etc? How the hell do you stay warm? I really, really dislike being cold...

The options can be confusing but the Canadian Fredette's are hard to beat.

If you're at all hesitant about dropping that kind of coin come to a ride and try someone's bike.
If you stud your own you'll probably be a moving chicane.

Point of interest, if you have any inclination to do a sanctioned race the Canadian studs are NOT allowed.

I'm going to try a new front tire this year and am running a Canadian Fredette rear.

Thanks fellas. Are the Fredette studded tires (either Canadian or AMA-legal) a bolt on item? Or are there fitment issues with a current generation KTM/Husaberg dirt bike?

They spoon on just like any other tire. Just with much additional effort. They weigh like 30 lbs each

Bring it, it's a good time and makes the winter go by faster.

Stay tuned here for what we're doing.

Thanks Randy. Do you just spoon them on as needed, or keep them on a second set of rims?
