yeah, and up there in BC you get enough snow to actually make use of it. Down here, it'd be a nice piece of furniture or a wall ornament (depending on how you store your bikes).

Im thinking balance or something - additional attachments?

Anyways that bike looks like its made out of some walmart bike. Maybe the cheap red or something. 345 USD is not cheap for something like that. And GT Sno racers were fun when I was younger, but I couldn't pull anything on it except on a ramp, in which all I could do was get some air. Those things were heavy and clumsy... I'll bike through snow, thank you.
