Have any of you tried anything like this?
Or Had a bad experience with skis.

Just thinking maybe it would help to stabilize the front wheel.
I would set the skis a little up from the bottom of the wheel.
Obviously if the front wheel came off the ground i'd be in trouble.

When i rode yesterday i wiped out on railroad tracks.
Soon as the front wheel contacted the rail i went down.

Just looking to keep the front wheel from slideing.

I haven't installed skis before though I'd love to do something similar.Depending on how the skis would be mounted to the bike you'd still probably need some kind a backup for them as well if they were to fail.For now,when your riding over railroad tracks or anything slick try to 'double' your weight into the bike allowing your weight to hold down the front and back end a little more to stop from sliding..Hopefully you understand what I mean!
