    Does anyone have plans to a decent set of ski bike plans?

    So winter is here, and I thought I'd try converting one of my bikes into a ski bike as a fun project. The bike I would be using is a 2009 Giant STP. It has a 20mm front axle and (please correct me if I'm wrong) a 12mm rear axle. I was hoping someone would have some good plans to making their own. I checked out instructables version, but I wanted to see if there were any other ones.

    This site sells conversion kits, but it looks rather simple to make...

    Yeah, I saw their site. I don't have access to machined aluminum, or machined anything for that matter. I don't plan on hitting any jumps, so I might just use some wood block with a drilled hole and stick the axle through there.
