      I found a site that shows you how to make your own studded tires using sheet metal if you are into DIY stuff.

      I haven't tried them yet, but they look pretty good.

      The Marathon Extremes sound great, and I need new ones for BD, but I find them only at UK sites. Any in the US?

They have THOUSANDS of multi-surface miles on them and they're still going strong. I can't believe how durable they've been. Since installing them I've had 0 flats. None. Zilch. Bupkis.
