Looking at all the leaves on the roads and knowing that they’ll be wet and slick until they’re either swept (I’m not holding my breath) or decomposed, I’m wondering if my studded snows might be of some use. I don’t enjoy putting those on rims, but I do have one waiting on an extra front wheel. Would running studs be silly? Would a studded tire on the front wheel and a normal tire on the rear be insane?
Might not really help. It would be like slipping on a stack of paper on floor. Grippier shoes with spikes might grab onto the first few sheets on the top but that doesn’t keep them from slipping on the layers below.
