Damn, quality answer. Thank you!
I am aware of most of the points you have, but some were new so thanks for that. Can’t wait to see how your tires will work.
I am thinking of getting larger tires made for offroading before studding but it quickly gets too pricy for a student.
I’ve been thinking about grinding down the studs I’ve got here on that wheel so it doesn’t stick out so much, however this must be done after driving them into the tire as I guess drilling in the tires would damage the “fibers” that hold the rubber together(though I could use the technique @ksfacinelli used) . I am guesssing it would be just as good to just drive the screw trough the the tire, and hope that I wont cut off any fiber strands.
Also snowchains seems like an economical way to go but that would probably limit speed on the plowed bicycle-roads we have here.
Damage to innner tube can be fixed with gaffa tape, old innertubes and much more. I’ve also been thinking about smearing a layer of silicone on the screw heads on the inside of the tire.
When it comes to stud strenght, these screws wont last me long, as they’re quite soft. I am thinking a sort of carbide or wolfram-carbide alloy screw is the way to go.
Top for your flat: When I lived in such a flat, I used a ventilator hose and an old PC-fan to make a ventilator that sucked the air out a window, worked like a charm.
Yeah Duffmans project is prettu badass, Maybe I’ll get there one day.
Thanks for great tips, now I know that others really are trying to make E-MTB viable in the winter and that’s really cool, also thats for the links to the different guides/builds. Helps a lot.
