    I bet they could make one out of half of an old TW.

    Take the skis off and put some wheels in their place and you would have an all season stand up 3 wheeler. Wouldn't have to endure "numb butt" anymore!

    Ski on the front tire didn't work out. I don't think I had the ski far enough forward. May try it again come winter time but it's too nice yet. I may also try "outrigger skiis". Balance is my main problem but without the lift of the front ski like seen in the video tweaker posted, I couldn't go in the deep snow. But we don't usually get that deep of snow...except last year ugh!.
