It’s that time of year again…time to start figuring out your winter ride. If you’re in VT you know what you’re in for, and if not maybe you should consider yourself lucky. I personally love winter riding – the added elements of snow and ice can sometimes get to me but more often than not they’re added pleasures to my commute.
It seems that this year may be the comeback year for chained tire setups. SlipNot has created chains for your 26 or 29 inch mountain bike that are easily removable for cleaning that grit and rust off. At $85 a pair they may sway some studded folks to make the switch. Plus, on those days when you’d rather just run rubber the SlipNot chain system comes off in a flash.
