    Anybody ever ride the Ktrak system?

    Looks like fun, not really a need for it here in SoCal

    It seems like this would very slow in the snow unless it was hard-pack ice..even so, doesn't seem like it would a smooth ride..i see a lotta energy being wasted on this thing. But, it is refreshing to see new ideas materialize like this!

    looks flexxy....


    don't grab any front brake until you make sure there is a block in the caliper!
    You better just go ahead and drop that seatpost down to the reflector... the trail gets pretty rough down there.

    It's as functional as

    me adapting my skis for trail riding.

    Can't wait to try these on the Norshore

    I've read somehwre that its almost impossible to go uphill with it, deep snow seem to be a problem also and most of the video i've seen of it is downhill riding...

    if its only meant to go downhill i'd rather ride my snowscoot..a lot more fun!

    two words, two numbers, one dot: Surly Endomorph 3.7. on the large marge rims, on the DH frame of your choice. that way, you actually have front brakes. the front may not stick quite like the ski once you get to the twisty (you can put a little fin running the length of the ski, you can't do that easily on a tire), but it's a small price to pay for being able to skip the ski lift on the way up the mountain. and for being able to ride it everywhere, possibly though deep snow (that isn't something I'd try tho. deep snow = time to break out a 'mog or a snowplow, depending if there is an actual road under the snow)

    Shop I work for last year got one of the first ones. They are pretty cool. The rear adds about 15lbs. The frt adds 5lbs. So what ever your bike weight then at 20lbs. They are strictly for DH. They do pedal but it is ridiculous and not worth it. On the DH they do perform pretty well. Deep powder days they are slower but not impossible. As a matter of fact most of the riders who tired it said it was impressively decent in the powder. They are great for more hard conditions. Unfortunately no lifts in Utah are willing to let this one ride. We contacted every resort and they said nope.
