HOW TO – Make a Ski bike

Oblongata writes –

“This will show you one way to build yourself a Ski Bike (aka Snow Bike, Skibob, Skike, or Skicycle). It is a downhill only machine and if you like bikes a lot, then it will probably keep a stupid grin plastered on your face all the way down whatever crazy hills you choose to take it on. It is easier to ride than it looks and is quite stable at high speeds (not sure about the speeds you could achieve at a ski hill, but its worked great for average hills in Wisconsin). There are many ways you could build one of these, this is just one way to get you started.”Link.

    Lane: Sorry Johnny, I don’t have a dime.

    Johnny: Didn’t ask for a dime. Two dollars.

    Lane: My little brother got his arm stuck in the microwave. So my mom had to take him to the hospital. My grandma dropped acid this morning, and she freaked out. She hijacked a busload of penguins. So it’s sort of a family crisis. Bye!

    i’ve attempted one of these, which failed with smudging colours… the wooden block idea seems like a decent one.
