Sharing space at the Phoenix Asylum with other makers, sometimes means a challenge gets issued. Here is my answer for the Ski Bike Challenge. Using an aluminum folding bike frame, salvaged from a 1990’s era electric bike, I came up with this. (2015)
With spring suspension for both front and back skis, and a spring loaded seat stem. And it folds for easy storage.
I welded the brackets out of steel, with a custom snowflake design.
I think this picture says it all. Can you see that smile on my face?
