I got my commuter bike set up this weekend to carry my crosscountry skis. It costs less than $10 and is easy to take off. Used one ten foot section of 4" perforated drain pipe (non-flexible) cut two two-foot pieces, glued on caps and drilled holes in bottom for drainage, put some foam and duct tape on top edge and voila! Your own scud launcher! I even found a use for old toe clip straps to attach the tubes to my rack. Use two straps per tube.

Have fun on the skis!

You must be a sight to behold commuting to work. Now for a series of "Ride pics" where you're skiing through that beautious land in which you live. Post it like "Saturday Ride Report" and see how many comments you get. I'll do it if I get enough time. One of the golf courses that I usually go to to ski posted signs prohibiting "snow sports" so I'll have to "bandit ski" there instead. I really love this sport. thanks again for helping me a git.

I could kill myself for good with that setup. Snaps on the idea though, its clever.
Fortunately, not a problem...Brooks

as my commute route has few trees over the road or trail that haven't been limbed up. I did stop at the three overpasses on the MUT to make sure I had clearance. I do by about a foot. Can't make it through the garage door (kind of like the roof rack problem, but no clicker on the bike) or any door for that matter.

You could put this set-up on a mountain bike and use it for a Golf Cart! Turn Golf into an aerobic sport. Save on cart fees. Speed up the game! Now for some SPD Golf Spikes. . . .
Polo golf! There's an idea! nmBrooks

Jan 6, 2003 11:35 AM do you carry your bike when you're skiing?
Now that would be an interesting biathlon! nmBrooks
