The Snomo-bike

Bike + Motor + Tread looks like the front end skates around a lot so I suspect they aren't using a studded tire in the front. Looks like the thing would be useless on glare ice as well.

Yeah that looks like my mtb commuter knobby on the front tire (no studs) - kinda sketchy. Looks like he's getting some traction on the back - interesting to see if there are studs on that as well. However it is rather fun to go out and mess around after a lot of snow with my off roader in VIRGIN snow (meaning - no snowplows) and it's thick and it's fun! Also fun to wheel into my backdoor a bike that is just full of packed snow - melt down in the kitchen!!!!! Didn't do that last year, but it will happen this year!!

I just put my studs on and I can get through ice/snow pretty well (studs are worn - really need new tires this year - am thinking about that), but I have to deal with here in the city - on the side streets is ankle deep non plowed crap sometimes full side streets, but mostly at the ends of the streets. I usually ride with one foot off the clips so I can skate through. And THAT can be sketchy as well! I get real happy with the City at that time, hehe
