Comments
Comments: I used spikes all day and had very few issues aside from one full blown banana peel moment. There is still plenty of snow out there on the trail and it looked like there were a few soft spots/newish postholes that were plenty deep. If you're careful to step in the center of the trail it was plenty sturdy. Took the traction off at times on the FRT - felt nice to rock hop again even if just for a little stretch.
