Helping You Ride Stronger, Look Better, and Feel Great!

Riding In The Snow? Do It On a Ski Bike!

You can keep your studded tires to yourself! Heck, I don’t need tires or even a drivetrain! 😉

As you can see I’ve been sporting my wonderful Ski Bike this winter and I can’t get enough of it! This is basically a bike with skis instead of wheels, but riding it is out of this world.

I just had to share my pictures, so check them out below. It’s a good time, you should try it!

Just remember, always wear your helmet! (Riding a bike downhill is dangerous enough, let alone riding down on something you rigged up in your basement!)

So build your own and try it out, it’s a lot of fun. It’s also surprisingly easy to learn. If you can ride a bike, you can probably ride a ski bike just fine.

However, if you can’t build a bike very well, be careful!

The Attack Position is a little different on one of these guys – you sit down, hold the bars, and stick your feet out.

You can carve turns just like you’re on real skis.

And don’t forget tricks like The Superman.

Carving down the mountain = loads of fun!

And stay tuned – the video will be posted shortly!

  1. Try some foot skis or pegs. Hanson may try to sue for patent violations! Time was when he was selling his conversion kits for $150, stating in his patent that he wanted to make ski bikes afforgable to the masses. Then he hooked up with a bike builder and jacked up the price to $650!

    There are lots of off the shelf items you can use to attach the skis to the bike drop outs, some more durable than others. I prefer to convert dual suspension bikes, it is easier on my old bones.

  2. Great snaps,
    Off course Ski Bikes are best and its fun skiing on it.
