    I studded mine without any issues. IMHO, it's the best rear tire under 5 inches out there.

    Thatís a pretty good ride. Glad to hear you got off the rollers.

    You might have motivated me to ride up to the Bells today.

    The incredible grooming made the miles pretty easy...the rollers made it possible!

    I recently picked up a pair of vee rubber snowshoe xl studded tires. Wow, sooo much better than the chaoyang tires that came with my bike. Lower profile sidewall, former sidewall, flatter tread profile and about 250 studs per tire. I've only been able to use then for one brief ride because the day they arrived the temperatures went about 10 above freezing and nuked the nearby trails.

    Our snow has melted but the fatty is still in play for the wet and boggy trails. Took the Buzzkill into the shop to get serviced but I gots the Pugs to roll around on. Maybe make the shop ride next week.

    Thinking of a lighter, narrower wheelset to turn the fatty into a summer town/gravel/light trail machine. Any advice for going this route?

    Do it!

    I turned my Wozo into that. Spends more time as a hardtail vs. just a fatty, but with the ability to run the fats when conditions are right.

    Same kind of hubs, put on another set of rotors and cassette makes for easy swapping. Running 34mm IW rims with 2.6-2.8 tires. A -2* Works headset and a 120mm fork in the frame makes it for a nice and fun slack/low bike about 66* HTA with a short fork works quite nicely. A good alternative to the full suspension bikes some days. All of two minutes to swap wheels.

    YMMV depending on what particular frame and setup you've got.

    You could get a nice set for that much.

    At that price you ought to be able to do alright, just don't settle for a rear hub that isn't up to the task. Many of the less expensive fat hubs are junk. These are a solid value and should take care of you pretty well with 10* engagement, 4 heavy duty leaf spring pawls and Enduro bearings. https://www.dirtcomponents.com/dirthubs Use the code Trailhead for 10% off.
