OT: Snow Bike

A friend of mine is coming from England in late March for a snow sports vacation. Old injuries make it difficult for him to ski or snowboard, so he prefers to snowbike. He's got rental set up in...

I had stopped and walked back to help a friend who was riding my XR400. Surprisingly, the Cagiva did much better in the snow than the much lighter XR, even though they were equipped with the same...

I rode it a few days ago, and there was indeed a fair bit of snow. I got through, but not without a fair bit of pushing. 68 road, on the other hand, had almost no snow, and was in good shape. Makes...

I won't be able to make it for Saturday night, so given the weather, I'll probably just ride the bike there from Boulder Satuday morning (vs trailering). I know it's kind of a random free-for-all in...

So by snow-free, do you mean actually clear down to gravel? Or is it a thin layer of hardpacked snow/ice on top of gravel? Just trying to decide how to equip.

No, it had enough power to pull itself and me up the hills, though I did have to keep the speed up in places. I put a 125cc, manual-clutch engine in it; the original 70cc would have been struggling,...
