How is Vivaldi better than Firefox ....or Chrome (most used browser in the world)

Btw what do you do with your studded tire when there is no snow? Does it make more noise when riding on the road? Does it also give you more traction when you ride off-road, than non-studded tires?

I'll come back to you on that as I dropped by the forum as I left the office and it would take more than a single sentence.

Right now when the weather is changeable I leave it on. In the warmer months I would switch to a different tyre.

If it is clean tarmac and I ride with it on it sounds like bacon frying in a pan. Not a bad thing but makes me hungry as I cycle along.

You mean with mud on trails and stuff? Nah, the studs only stick out a few mm. They are for ‘gripping’ ice. There would be no benefit to on most surfaces and only serve to add a bit more weight.

Oh and I used it on proper ice this morning and it was good. The only problem was that when I stepped off the unicycle (to cross a road), I nearly slipped as I have no studs on my shoe. Clearly it is safer to unicycle.
