Should I get studded tire for Bike commuting in Pueblo

I love bike commuting. My local Craigslist has some great studded tires for a good deal. I just got a job in Pueblo, so I dont know that climate yet. I don't think that winters are that icebound to require studded bike tires?

buy a bunch of small/tiny screws... screw them into the knobby studs on your tires (from the outside). make sure they do not go through the tire.

there ya go.

You probably won't need studded tires. Most of the time the roads are just snow packed and regular nobby tires should get you thru the winter. Or, get you a pugsley.

No. Pueblo hardly gets any snow, and when they do it melts fast. Pueblo is my "go to" spot for winter mountain biking. Check out the Reservoir South Shore trails....

If you are an everyday commuter and have multiple bikes one which can have studs all winter and you have access to good deals on studded tires I would say pull the trigger. Otherwise I would think seriously about it based on how little snow pueblo has on a regular basis.

Thanks for the great replies

Given the climate and the short stay the snow has I will pass on the studded tires. I have a spare rear wheel. I'd I can find a spare front wheel, I could mount my knobbies for the brief snow.

I am looking forward to the pueblo whitewater park. Being so close to the royal gorge and numbers.

Thanks for the replies.

Then send good snow vibes towards the mountains, the park was lame last year due to lack of flow.
