yeah that's a kit you can buy for just about any 26 inch mountain bike, its made for riding in the snow or downhill biking / skiing. Its been available for more than a few years.

the few times i've read of anyone actually using one (i think i was on mtbr.com when i was reading about it) they said it wasn't good for much more than going downhill.

i wanted a kit because I love halftracks. The track system is plastic, the pads or more accuratly paddles are rounded for handling. Sadly much like snomobiles, works best in snow, and yes, down hill. I wish theybwould use a more all terrain friendly rubber system.
