Electric Snowbike conversion kit DIY - jumping a Snow bike
Just a short demo of the snobike in operation and proof of concept..
After the rain finally let off and turned into falling snow here in Squamish, BC Canada, the frozen slew which is a small channel off the Squamish River was covered in several inches of fresh snow... a small mound out of snow was packed into a ramp and we started to take some jumps.. about 5 jumps were attempted without any injury or any major bike issues...
The complete electric snow bicycle conversion cost about $500 .. Just adding the rear wheel bike chain and front ski costs about $100... The time it takes to install the front ski is about 2-3 minutes and the rear wheel chain another couple minutes.. and total weight added to the e-bike is under 3kg.
If weather permits and building continues another prototype demonstration is in the works..
