I think the tow behind sweeper also found a new purpose.
It is way cool when a good photog catches us looking cool. And we had no idea.

That was my day to ride when the cameras were resting.

Does steering outside the turn help when the front tire isn't touching anything but air?



I agree that it's a pretty cool pic. You don't even look like a giant on that two-smoke.

WTF is that thing?

On a completely unrelated note....

I am looking to stud an old pair if knobbies, any tips, recommendations, hazards, etc?

Brands of spikes / studs to use?

Or, is this a horrible idea that leads to spending way too much money, broken bones and frostbite?

Mostly for trail riding with a little bit of goofing off on the small pond behind the house.

Just get some short 1/2 or so Kold Kutter screws and put 1 or 2 in each knob.
That should help out for trail riding, and be sort of, semi, kinda, OKish for some ice riding.

Until you get to ride a set of Pro built tires.
