I had some free time ... death tarp content

I know its trap, but I been hanging out in the fixie section ( I do own a track & tark bike. : o ) ) too long ...

The alu. orange frame is schwinn predator le ... yeah, its a couple of years old ...


Background story :

I seen some, "tuturials" on - line on how to take a hack saw to some skis, but I would have felt like too much of a "hack" ... never understood why perfectly good skis had to die . ( they should all still be skied, or hanging on a wall somewhere ) I sent some purdy serious coin ( like 25$, LOL .) @ play it again sports & picked up some Line "skiblades" ( or whatever the non-Salamon ones are called... ) I had a friend enroled in a welding class @ the local college bring me some scrap steel ... But, not more than his "lab fee" for the semester ... ( Insert Richard Nixon quote/line ... LOL. ) I still had the wheels off my neighbors, kids 20" bike that, someone left out in the rain one night, & was headed for the curb/garbage... I did make a sweet interception. ( The rest of the bike is a purdy, goofy looking fixie, now... ) Those where used to donate the cones and axles & nuts. Which where used in metal tube/pipe welded to the big triangle looking things, ( note : the front larger/taller than the rear ) then the bolt ptern was transfered from the skis to the steel via. high tech paper and crayon method. LOL .

The whole rig was on the hill for about 2 hrs ... before getting told to leave . ( it will def. need some sort of brake ... one person that was tring ot out almost ran over some skier after the "landing" ... why some skier was hangig out in a blind spot, we will never know ... ) About 4 people tried it out, including some young dudes GF. : o ) ...
