Putting chains on your tires is illegal just about everywhere but rural American because of the damage snow chains can do to paved roads. No such restriction exists for bicycles, nor will you likely find a bike with enough weight to do any damage with chains on the tires! If you’re braving a commute or keeping up a fitness routine via bicycle this winter, there is an excellent tutorial at cycling enthusiast blog Mountain Bike Riders to help you chain your tires and keep going strong through the winter. A quick trip to your workshop bins or the local hardware store for braided chain, wire and zip ties will get you started. The tutorial’s author spent a scant $13.66 to outfit his bike, a significant savings over the cost of your average ER visit.
