The outside temperature reads 79.8 degrees and sunny so I feel safe to post my update about my Schwalbe Marathon Winter Tires, without receiving too many groans. The tires have steel studs and can be run on low as well as high pressure. This versatility allowed me to have them on my bike until April. I rode every day and celebrated my 1 year every day riding in March of this year.
Studs can pull out of the tire though, hence a parts order was made to Schwalbe tires for replacement studs and an installation tool. I will put the studs away until a cold, rainy fall day. The replacement studs are specific to not only the tire company but the tire model. If you also have any Marathon Winter tires that need replacement studs- see us.
