Ski Bikes

Does anyone know anything about these bikes? Like how you can get them and stuff. Winter is coming and these look like fun.

Yea, I'm starting to think they are home made too. All the ones I'm finding online only have one ski in the back.

Maybe bolt a snowboard to the dual crown I took off my tandem, and slap it on the front of my cruiser. Or not.

I was thinking of maybie modifing the F5 for a snow bike, but i would feel safer on something manufactured. However the F5 would have more of a BMX feel to it.

To be able to carve snow on a bike would be fun.

I taught welding in metal shop. You don't want to ride on something some half-baked kids have cobbled together.

^^^^ Thats the 1st ive seen of a 3ski configuration, thanks for the info. I will warn all of you, if you consider a skibike, make sure that it has fat boards on the bottom(unless its a 3ski as seen above) or it will feel like downhill MTB. The full model bikes(koski,k2) and the conversion kits out there have 2 thin skis that attach to your mtn bike but will only ride the groomers. If you want to hit back country or have control in the park, you need something with wide boards on it.


If you want a freestyle bmx feel on the slopes, these are decent bikes in my opinion.
