today finished up my ski bike again 2nd year in a row. last year was alot of mistakes in one. this year i thought everything through. heres a short list of what you need.

parts:
wood screws 2.5in
2 ski's(will be cut)
4x4x6 blocks of wood
2 old bike chains
2 old hubs
frame, forks, bars, stem, headset, unsealed bb, seat etc.
2 pegs grip tape covered
old axle(same size as pegs)

tools:
hack saw
wood saw
drill (bits to do holes and screws)
countersink bit
chain breaker
regular bike tools

step1
cut ski's to desired length
get blocks of wood cut
get bike frame set together

step2
drill holes to screw the wood and ski's together
countersink holes
screw wood and ski together

step3
take old hubs place them on the wood blocks
break chain to lengths that will wrap over the hub
screw through links into the wood to tighten the hubs to the ski's

step4
1 chain on the outside of the flanges and 2 on the inside
remove bb from frame
put the bare axle through bb tighten the pegs on(bolt on or screw on)

step5
if everything is done correctly the ski's and hubs should be very solid.
the hubs can be put into the dropout and tightened
everything else is self explanitory along the major bike parts.

OPTIONAL:
bungie cords to hold ski's level. DIY thing

i wish it actually snowed in NC without going to the mountains

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.
Bike check?

They did one of these in RideUK

They used an old bike, without wheels an chain, then cut a skateboard in half, built a wooden box on top of the skateboard, drilled it into the dropout, and rode it. Looked super sick. I wanted to make one, because if you fuck off, snow isnt going to hurt too much

It forces you to pump around, which makes you a better rider by teaching you how to flow.

the frind i am talking about couldn't bike for his life. he couldn't wheelie more than 5 ft or bunny hop higher than 2 inches. He rides his hoffman with mongoose parts on it because "it makes the colors look cooler."
instead of taking apart a hoffman and trying to be funny by putting pegs through the bottom bracket, he should be trying to learn how to ride his $400 bike.

I will give you that. Sounds like he is in BMX right now to be cool and will be out of it the second something else comes around.

at one point he took it apart and made it into a trampoline bike.
the only problem is he doesn't have a trampoline . . .
