Re: Success on 7 deg F motorized bicycle work commute!
Interesting ideas. I'm not about to try it myself, but if I were to try a ski mod for my front wheel like the yellow bike there, I'd have another mod to add... put an eyebolt or similar near the front lip of that 'front ski', and connect it to the handlebars with a bungee to prevent the wheel/ski from turning. It could help keep the front edge of the ski from catching and giving you a flying lesson.
Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
