    Why?

    I want one :D

    Granted, we're not getting as much snow this year as last, so pointless right now.

    Looks like a lot of fun but how do you stop? You use your edges on skis to check your speed or slow down. Can't see how you would do this on a ktrak.

    Nothing hoses the rest of your bike like riding in snow. I trashed a few when I lived in chicago.

    Say what? Road salt trashes bikes, snow doesn't. Winter riding is a hoot.

    $399 bucks sounds reasonable ! If i live in the snow that would be pretty cool to have .

    Right. Plain ol' snow isn't any worse than splashing water on the bike. You should wipe the drivetrain down after riding, but if you perfom some very minimal maintenace you'll be fine. Salt, on the other hand, is the suck.

    OK. Don't do winter rides on the roads. Get out in the woods and ride. Problem solved.
