Winter Biking Tips : MacGyver Tire Trick To Keep Biking

winter-biking-tips-macgyver-tire.jpg

Here's one of the best winter biking tips to keep biking in the winter without spending much mullah. The MacGyver tire trick is basically just tiring a bunch of zip ties to your tire to incrase the tread. 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. "
