yeah it's a call you have to make. I have 3 bikes, 2 w/ straight bars, those 2 get studded tires. I move the barmitts from one to the other. road bike w/ drop bars has barmitts but I'm less likely to use it cuz it doesn't get studs. OK for cold rides on dry roads or paved trails. maybe it's easier to have just 1 bike?
