Spikes(like the ones I pictured) are mostly harmless to concrete. Just some surface scratches. Fly pads or turf would be a bad idea.

I have a winter question. Grip? When it gets cold and dry out I can't get any grip on my discs. What is best to use for grip? Thanks!

I use G Star plastic. It stays gummy and flexible in the wintertime. (And it's hilariously droopy in hundred-degree weather.)

Yup, I use mainly champion type plastics so in the winter I lose distance. I'm In the process of obtaining more colder weather plastic.

a warm hand.

as long as you keep your hand nice and toasty (like, really warm, almost sweaty) in relation to that cold plastic, you'll always grip just fine.

I use a birdie bag in the summer weather to get rid of the clamminess of my grip. Is there any kind of birdie bag type device to use in the winter months to give me, say more... Clamminess?
