    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'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....
