All you Northern Virginia/DC/Southern MD riders, check this out. Select "Short Range Base Reflectivity Loop" ...

I've NEVER seen that color on the Sterling radar loop before!

Earlier this winter I decided not to get studded snow tires like MB1 is using, because, after all, we don't get that much snow and ice in Northern Virginia. Well, I've missed a huge amount of riding so far this year because of that decision. Next year, I'm putting on the studs.

I keep saying the worst is behind us and it seems like it is never going to break. I used to say I wouldn't ride below 45 degrees and this year I said 30 if it was clear. Well I am with you, I should of gotten studded snowtires and a balaclava and just gone for it.

... I hope that just means they've got the sensitivity cranked all the way up, but I usually just see greens and blues when something is coming. This thing is escalating ... first it was oranges and reds, then magenta and purples started appearing, and now they're showing patches of white, the highest intensity of reflection.

I too was tempted to buy some for my cross bike, but kept thinking this was the last snow! Now it looks like I'll be spending President's Day shoveling my driveway.

I'm not sure I'd like them for my cross anyway. Their web site listed the weight at neary 900 gms each - seems I couldn't get them up a hill even if they gripped. Also, I can barely clear a 700x35 in the rear and wasn't sure they would fit.
