    Looks rather a challenge to mount an engine on that....definately rule-out friction drive.

    Lots of options

    I can think of a couple of options. A Cyclone, if they are somewhat water tight. Or Ghost and Pablo's jackshaft. It has a rear disc brake so with of of Andy's sprockets you could also do a HT in the normal fashion or a Straton rackmount.

    It was pretty late when Simonator (hope I got his name right) IMed me with a link to a pic of this. My 1st thought it was some mad scientists one off creation. Then I found it was in production! I pull out my wallet then I remembered I was married and all major purchases have to be approved by committee. :(

    no reactions?
    no one can see this things potential as an MB?
    I commuted in record snow last year, I'd love one.
    maybe a pic will help.
    keep in mind its not the frame its the tracks and ski only.

    I'm going to stick with studded tires. They work all winter on all surfaces from ice to packed snow to dry pavement. That ski and track would only work on packed snow.

    I doubt I could ever get that to mount onto my Whizzer, but it would be neat to ride a bike equipped with that system.

    I thought about this and did some research. I discovered that it doesn't work well. My option was to purchase a snorunner from ebay. www.snorunner.com Unfortunately, the snorunner was not well represented and needs a lot of work. Maybe I'll get it to work before all the snow melts.

    I have one, I was running half the winter with it, check out my pictures! It worked well with a studded tire on the front, until I through a trak and split it. They already sent me a replacement and now I am ready for next winter.

    Thanks for the picture. I couldn't see the #1 Post website.

    I like it a lot but I would run a tire on the front. I've seen Youtube videos with the ski and it looks very unstable.

    this guy made one that sits very low. This works good.
