    I'm going to go out on a limb and say joking because some days it's all I can do to get me and my rotating front wheel through the snow.

    On a winter support note: I think my lights are put away for all normal commutes until next year!

    If he is serious, he hasn't tried it. No way that works. The lawnmower though....

    Well, the ad says he's learned by trial and error, so maybe the plow is one of the errors. He claims to have 1,995 of the lawnmowers out there.
    The vids I found of other lawnmower bikes don't look too convincing though.





    This plow looks good for a bike path.


    But thetrailduster is on to something with the trike/quad pedalplows.

    Nice collection. Those plows looked good as long as there was only 3" of snow.

    I'm surprised the trike works, too. They are usually one wheel drive in the back. Try riding up a hill with wet grass gets you spinning backwards down the hill.

    I bet that Rubbermaid box is full of something heavy just for that reason. You could conceiveably get a lot more umph out of a rig like that and either push heavier snow or push a bigger plow through fluffy stuff.

    From Finland - a great video shared by a local all-weather bikecommuter who pedals past my house...
    The sheer volume of winterbikers in the video is heartwarming!

    My desktop background is a slideshow of all of my biking pictures which includes a lot of winter shots...And I'm pretty glad it is summer! As much as I enjoy my winter commutes across the lake and trails.

    This thread is getting ready to come out of its long slumber I suspect.

    I'm definitely thinking about it. I did a chainring swap on my winter crankset yesterday, and rewraped the dropbars that I'm plan on using. The parts won't actually get swapped on for another month and a half (or maybe even 2) though.

    ^^36 here on Monday, forecast to be 92 with a heat index over 100 today. I refuse to accept winter for 2 more months. Jordy can have it.

    I'm ready for fall, certainly not for winter. 94 today, not sure how I feel about that.

    The hard top is going back on the Jeep tomorrow, which is slightly depressing. Soft top doesn't make for a nice highway trip and I'm driving 6 hours to Acadia next week.

    A little pre-winter pump up for the people. GoPro released new video edit software and I had to try it:

    You have no excuse for driving to work

    I am happy I erased all my useless old footage so I don't have to follow in CB's footsteps! Of course the rest of you should be ecstatic!

    The angle with the camera mounted on the left side of the helmet is so weird.

    I've got my winter build on my mind, but it's supposed to be a bit below 90 here tomorrow too.
