    Sorry but some OT

    Have heard of this before but never heard of a good result.

    But for your amusement and ridicule.

    Have heard of a good result. A lad in Eastbourne rode in and found himself snowed in for the commute home. Tried the Zip ties and on Snow and Ice they worked. He lost a few but as they broke they just fell off the wheel. He got the idea off Gizmodo- which is where these pics came from.

    So as a Quick get you home- it's worth a try

    And off the same source--work this one out

    There's also a problem fixing a flat
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    Wow, I'm impressed. Fixed gear in the snow . . . with zip ties and disc brakes! This rider really rocks and gets my vote for hard core rider of the year.

    I can't tell for sure, but that rear hub looks large, like an internally geared hub. You'd need some sort of non-rim brakes for this work, so the disk brakes are pretty much a given.

    But if it's a fixie, you don't really need brakes, right? Or you just don't stop.

    My point was, that it isn't a fixie, it is an internally geared hub, Alfine, details here:

    (The zip-tie write-up talks about fixies, but doesn't say that bike is one.)
