Step 1: Get a bike

 First find a suitable bike.
I used an old mountain bike that I found at the local recycling centre, but you can use a bmx or pretty much any other kind of bike. Next remove all uneeded parts like brakes, shifters, wheels and crankarms etc.

Step 2: Preparing the snowboard

Once you have found a old snowboard, remove all the bindings and chop it in half about 2/3 of the leanth of the board.
Use a hacksaw and prop up the end when almost choped through to get a cleaner cut.
You could use an old pair of skis but i decided to use a snowboard so it works well in powder as i am not going to use it on ski slopes.
You may want to silocon or epoxy up the ends to stop water getting in.

Does it ride well?
Tjm2000 (author)  cheddarevan9 months ago
Yea really well.
Recently got 2 'of snow and it goes awesome.
It slides on top of the snow and you can get going really fast.
At high speeds you sometimes get the speed wobbles.
I made a 2'jump out of plywood and it's awesome but once I bent the handlebars when I landed.
