    LowCost Solution to Keep On Biking

    LowCost Solution to Keep On Biking
    Gear  /  Bike
    A low-cost solution to keep on biking. One of the cyclists at Dutch Bike Co. was caught without studded tires when it started snowing in Seattle. But there's nothing that a box of zip ties can't fix! MacGyver trick isn't new, but now that winter is here... Fritz Rice, the the DIYer on these photos, says that while the ties look "completely ludicrous", they work "beautifully":
    "I can accelerate, brake, and corner with aplomb, even on the vile snowpack/sheet ice mix the plows leave in the bike lanes. The zip ties dig nicely into the hardest packed surfaces, but they're thin enough not to bounce the bike around at low speed or on short pavement sections. "
