PBC #2

The second video for the Polar Bear Challenge. If you are interested in some of the other submitted videos, they can be found at http://polarbearchallenge.tk/. The mild inversion can really be seen in the temperature. At the house, it was +12°F and at the university, it was +6°F. A difference that you can really feel.

I opted for a liesurely ride around the university due to the extremely slick roads and no studded tires. The roads are always really slick when it warms up after being really cold. I think that the road surface is still really cold and it gets a layer of frost.

Anyway, here is video number two.

So slick icy roads, 2WD help any? Had to use mine a lot recently but attributed it to needing to change out the pusher tire soon.

looks damn cold for sure
whats the go with doing studded tires
do you just screw them in

2WD only needed to get out of the driveway. Some wheel spin in deeper snow but the new Heidenaus work pretty good.

GripStuds screw in and don't pull out. They work pretty well but at $1 each, pretty pricey.
