i just tried this to my bike there are some problems with it. One you no longer have brakes on that tire and two i road under a half mile with the zip ties on and 3/4 of the zip ties fell off. do not wast your time or money on this one. but it was a cool idea.

I do not bike but I just happened to see this and wanted to give my opinion. SHEER GENIOUS!!!!

very interesting
but also if your on snow and ice you dont want to be slamming on your brakes

I'd be interested to feel how they perform vs a studded tire. Maybe I'll give it shot myself next winter. I also wonder how long they'd last and if they'd cause the tire to wear unusually where it contacts the straps.

Concerns aside, I think the concept is terrific. Very creative use of zip ties, TruorFalse. :)

How do you brake after adding the zip-ties? Wouldn't they catch on the pads of the calipers?

this method works best with disk brakes.... but still rather effective if you really NEED to bike in the ice/snow.

I guess it would depend if you have "backward-peddle" brakes (many kid bikes [20" or smaller]) or hand brakes....
