    Ski Bobby

    The Euros have been riding these for nearly a century in some form or another and they refer to them as Ski Bobbys. Check out this Lenz Sport promo, my band did the soundtrack.

    The lenz Sports are real nice but save your $. If you want to demo one, Monster Drop Shop in Summit Cove near Keystone will have a demo fleet this winter.

    The other option is to get a mod kit and turn your old DH frame into a ski bike. My buddy used the X games kit, which was about $120. combined with a $99. pair of snolar blades and the set up is sick. I personally like it a bot more than the Lenz as it was cheaper and sports a much slacker head angle, which I quite like for the gravity sports. The traditional ski bobby has you wearing ski boots with small skis on your boots. I don't know how you catch air on these though, because its seems that you would land on your nuts.

    I am looking forward to getting some more days in on the ski bike this winter.

    I talked to Devin Lenz about it and he said that it is best to head up with someone that can show you some of the basics and within a half day you will have it down.

    If you are a serious buyer you may want to talk to Devin directly about trying one of his out and getting a little lesson from him.

    I called Devin and he did not call me back. I am interested in trying before buying for sure. The conversion kit sounds like a fun winter project.

    North Legion

    Yes, Devin is a hard guy to get in touch with, he is very busy. I think my buddy bought the X games mod kit off of Ebay, as well as the skiis.

    Check out North Legion, this is what I would get if I had the cash right now. This is who Darren Barreclothe rides for in the winter.
