    It's really more of an equipment question, but is it better to use a mummified monkey's paw, or a medallion personally blessed by Mother Theresa, to ensure that the rain ceases between, say, 7 and 8 pm tonight?

    The answer is "you'll feel awesome once you get home and shower"*

    Pleasant evening commute with a friendly encounter with Kathy (nice riding with you!). Just miffed that I lost count on my HP laps and ended up only doing four and not the five I had originally planned. Silly Pete.

    After a very long time with no flats I got hit twice today. This morning I got a flat on the way into work which made me a few minutes late for a meeting. It appears that the studs in my studded tires wore through the inside of the tire just enough to make a hole in the tube. When I patched it I used the dollar bill trick and got into work and within 3 miles of my destination on the way home. Then I had another flat. My wife was kind enough to pick me up so that I would not have to patch the tire and then just remove the tire when I got home. Tonight I make the switch back to slicks.

    The Schwalbe Snow Studs only had around 1,000 or so miles on them -- has anyone else had studs go through the rubber of their tires? Anyone have better luck with other models? Maybe I can find some good deals now that were approaching the "off season" ...

    This could just as easily go in the March 2015 Trail Conditions thread.

    I got treated to this beautiful sunset at Hains Point last night at Hammerfest, after which I commuted home, bumped into SteveO, got diverted to World of Beers, got home late, slept in this morning, and missed FCC. Damn SteveO!
