    Winter Ski

    Hey Hey,
    i was thinking about making a homemade ski to replace my front tire for winter riding. Has n e one ever tried to make their own? or any one with suggestions or advice? it seems like it will be an interesting project so i'd like to get some feedback b4 i start. It''l be finished by this time next year (i won't be starting wor a few months)

    nope, bad idea. Make a studded tire or 2 like I did. They work really good. I used 3/4" sheet metal screws through panaracer fire xc pro tires.

    If you want to see one of those things in action, check out the Beatles movie HELP! .

    Coincidently, they featured the so-called "new" ski bike on Good Morning America about two months ago. I couldn't see much difference between those and the old ones. Anyway, after you see people trying to ride them it becomes pretty obvious why they never catch on.

    I hope so. What do you'all think about the studded tire in the rear and ski in front? Or would the studded in front be better?
