Snow Bike

I've had my Snow Cat wheel set for about 10 years now.  But, I haven't had a 26" frame to put them on for 5 years.  So, I put 'em on the 29er.  Yeah the bottom bracket is quite low but the bike sure is stable.  The fixed gear cog is loctited on.  Don't do this unless you are only going to ride in the snow with a really low gear.  Again, the purpose of the Snow Cat rims is to make the tire profile look like a "U" not an "O" where it contacts the ground and the rim so that it can really spread out.  More fun than a pair of skis (for me).
