Impressive engineering, but it must cost a bomb. You'd have to really want to ride in the snow! Which just makes me wonder why you wouldn't just put on skis instead!

That'd be a blast to ride-downhill...

... not sure I'd wanna pedal it the other way though :lol:

But if I was stuck indoors in Canada due to the snow and looking like I was about to go stir crazy, I reckon one of these would start looking pretty attractive.

My first thought was "god that looks heavy it'd be awful to ride" but on seeing it's meant for riding on snow, well in that case it would probably be alright.

Lovely engineering work.
