    Maybe Skinnier Tires Would Work.......

    Or really heavy and I'll just blast through.....

    Then again if I get a Moonlander it might float better.

    You need the twin Laser Cannons, a soon to be released and highly desirable optional extra for the Moon Lander

    I think if you fill the tires with helium you may float up to the top, just hope there is not an icy crust.

    It took me a minute or so to realize the door was open and a wall of snow on the other side!

    Awesome!

    I think you just need one of these and a running start:

    Take a run-up with the vintage ten-speed hanging from the ceiling... Skinny is the new fat.

    I see daylight near the top. You just need a ramp.

    No problem that can't be solved with the judicious application of speed.

    Beer we have. I'd share with Martinsillo if he'd bring LaPugdozer up to Tear down that wall. Seriously there is another way out of the garage and the riding today was great. It has finally warmed up a bit and last weeks snow is now mostly packed down on the trails. You sure don't want to put a foot down off the trail though. The lower hillside of Anchorage has reportedly been "blessed" with almost 100" of snow this season. The snow on my roof, where much of what is blocking the door came from, was well over waist deep. I still have over half the roof to go but riding took priority today.

    For maximum effectiveness, just add pulse ramjet. (Though depending on whether your basement is large enough to get you up to ram speed, you may just want to opt for one of those mini turbofan jet engines.)

    3 weeks ago i found an ad for a cheap pulsejet engine with a total cost of around $120
    I wondered what i would be like if you would mount it on a fatbike and blast over the beach.
    And i already thought of a good name for such a contraption : The Pulseley !

    They are Exustar E-PC96 They are light and inexpensive but also quite small. They are OK for my wife's bike because she doesn't ride technical stuff. I think they might be hard to stay on if you ride bumpy trails.
