Alaskahack, where in Europe is he from? How much tread do those studs require? My rear is almost to the treadware indicator. Would be worth trying if that is enough rubber.

Pretty impressive that he hasn't thrown any studs. Everyone else who's tried em throws a few.

TMS said he was from Slovenia. I was in the shop last Saturday visiting.

I see he has an ADV sticker. Is he an inmate on here?

Wonder if he and Sjaak will cross paths?

Drunk Uncle he is from Slovania and is in the middle of a world tour. His web site is www.aroundtheworld.si

And he still has to update it, and you have to use google to translate it

The studs that he is using are Grip Studs #1200 they have a solid carbide the length of the stud, the part that screws into the tire is a auger thread that is 3/8" dia. The length is also 3/8" this is on the #1200

Ya Mark we were in TMS friday I bought a spare wheel and TKC for the front of my bike. He's tried about everything for studs and came up with the ones that he is using. Between Whitehorse and Wasilla he didn't throw any studs

I gave him the sticker a couple of years ago because he was the first guy I met that was a adventurer

Sjaak seem to be having a little problem with the amount of weight he is trying to pull

Wow some of the potholes out there are as ls large as the Grand Canyon. But they are a sure sign spring. It could have been worse. Ride safe
