That's the same method we used to use as kids.

We would have oval track races on a frozen swamp behind my friends house. It was awesome. Every once in a while one of us would go through the ice, but it was still fun.

The 1970's: No knee pads, helmets, brakes, or over cautious soccer mom's. It's just how we rolled...

last night a quick ride, only 15 min. again on hardpack streets and through the cementery... tires still holding air and helping me maintain control. you do have to be more cautious I have found.. glad I was not clipped in.

ok, tried the old screws from inside out trick, took me maybe 90 mins. just took a quick spin around the block, guess you would call the streets hard pack, took a spin on my 26 and 29 non studded as well.. and there is a sig. difference.. not sure how long they will last,, but $5.95 at home depot, and some duct tape. it's been 4 hours and they are still holding air..

I have no idea how long these will hold up.. but I don't see myself logging several hundred miles on them anyway..

will update when I do a true ride on them... just took a few pics.. but guess you will have to visit here to look

I wonder if the zip tie trick would have worked in that situation. Probably better than nothing. Just don't get a puncture...

Opinions are like pimples, they vary in amount and cover different areas.

There is no or, you're going to lose it.

yeah, the reason you don't see me in the picture is because I only made it about 100 yards before I tossed in the towel... I was going no where fast, not to mention that was on the flats...

well, at least I got to "enjoy" a drive around lower Chaut. and northern warren county on new years day morning...wooowoo ....
