Re: Snow Ride / Not so easy
Definitely get a pull start, they're the only way to go. As for the ski idea, wouldn't they slide a bit too much without springs so they can give a little when leaning on a turn?
When I think of riding in snow, I think of studded tires and either a three wheeled bike or one with a side car for support.
Either way, if you could rig it with skis somehow and make it usable by anybody, you may have the makings for a new business venture here. A lot of us live in the frozen north!
