Re: Real Snowbike

That is exactly the experimentation needed. Today, we all race with our feet apart. Shorter is better, that is why the FIS limits how short we can go? No limit on longer. I came up with different skis for the bike than I see on the web. I use a kid's racing ski at about 100cm long. The thinner the b...

Re: Real Snowbike

A skinny bike will work if the snow is right. To this day, if the ski runs are hard, the most fun is a skinny front ski and Ice Spiker Pro on an enduro bike. All my nonsense has just expanded the snow conditions I can play in, including powder. It seems reasonable to start where I did, Front ski and...

Re: Real Snowbike

Number one, ride what you have. Schwalbe Ice Spiker Pro tires can get any mountain bike screaming around a ski area's groomed runs. Bikeboard is an easy front ski, but it comes with the wrong ski for groomers. I would love to share ideas with other riders. My batting average is worse than an America...

Real Snowbike

The motorcycles call themselves snowbikes, yet there is no “B” in motorcycle. The defining difference is a real snowbike is light enough to save yourself. Snowmobiles, Snowmotorcycle, all have to call for help every time they are stuck. My recent leap forward is the tire. Anyone can buy this now, bu...

Re: Torque Sensor vs Throttle

Where would one program out the 6 mph thing? I am looking at the program fields and do not see anything like this. I am very interested in the Galaxy if I can get rid of this. Using the throttle from a dead stop is big help for old people.

Re: Interbike 2018, Reno-Tahoe, Sept 14-20

You guys are probably the most familiar with how the far east section worked. A few of them already made something with a single swing arm that I was interested in. My job was to buy something off the floor to make prototypes and then pay them to produce it. The ugly American thing didn't endear me ...

Don't let the tax tail wag the dog... So your good at your job. Will we get rich with a real snow bike? Have you ordered a tire for the death machine? I will buy your tire and rim just so we can go ride together. I just bought a third ski set up. To bring this back to Hitler and Interbike, we bough...

I get the enthusiasm and marketing, but the award and so many other things of ebike popularity seems disrespectful to the people here who made it possible. I got another one for Spinning Magnets.

I am new here. I know it ruins a joke, but I am guessing you share my WTF reaction. We just got back from Reno's first ebike only store. Francesca now wants an integrated tube. I like my blowers sticking out of the hood. Maybe the award is deserving if not terribly sad.

How was the beach cruiser compared to a Townie? I see it is foot forward. The new Townies are out! disc brakes, 8speed, Bosch motor, same price as the cruiser 2100, 400 off last years. I see last years on eBay for 2100, good luck with that. Story? Devo and I rode the Spitzenkiller but he raced the F...

Thanks for the synopsis. Reno has grown not only from Tesla, but wholesalers building warehouses. Bicycle retailers are now getting things from Reno so I wonder if this was a factor in choosing it. Reno is well located among western highways. eMTBs at Northstar and public being allowed is the change...
