No thread to talk about doing all that yet
30 bucks not bad
it seems to make this work with BN AT drives you would have to make the ring on the inner side wider, and keep it from hitting the gearbox. Not sure… May not be worth the trouble.
what about keeping the battery heated? range is just destroyed in the winter when it gets below -10
If you start out with it at room temp you should be okay as the pack heats itself when used and it’s in a (mostly) sealed enclosure that significantly slows heat loss.
Honestly those doubled up tires don’t seem like a terrible idea for this. Spread out the weight so you sink less, and double your contact patch and grip.

Better than digging a hole and not rolling at all
I did that the other day on 200x50 knobbies. board just stopped moving from 70% speed and I slid about 15m forward on one foot. was a funny fall.
i can imagine a wheel of dicks leaving a trail of dick prints in the snow
now I want treads with dick shaped bumps, so everyone can know how much I’m compensating for with bigger wheels.
i have the confirmed smallest dick😛
u know whats even worse for rolling resistance? Snow, mud, and sand
I thought that spot was taken by “the only chick here”
he’s a chick though, now withtout thinking too deep, therefore having not a dick
I still have a dick, but it’s macroscopic
back to treads!
curious if we’ll ever get studdable 8" esk8 tires
Trampa’s 8" Mudpluggers claim they can
Anyway… I wanted to ask if anyone has tried Trampa’s diamond pattern tires in the snow? 8" or 9"
Looks like it might actually have traction in the middle, unlike most other tires.
Or maybe mud pluggers at low tire pressure would be even better…
@Trampa what do your riders / customers prefer for riding on compacted snow?
i think andrea and i each got a set of mud plugged
i think, he def did i don’t remember if i told him to order some for me too cause i wanted the 7” version more
but ya, gonna try and have those for when snow kicks in, and for offroadinng
when 7” back in stock? who knows
The 9" Mudplugger is pretty good in the snow. We tried that last winter.
resistance you say… this sand-drift after big storm recently caught me big time
this is as far as my really soft 9’s get me down the dune on the beach
my first attempt…
I think doubles will get me just that bit further
I failed to get to the hard sand but I was still pretty impressed how far I got, next time I planning a route hitting the vegetation for traction
riding down this dune is some of the most fun I’ve had in years
Is there a way to do this with MBS fivestars
and not just Trampa style hubs? Maybe a huge 3d printed spacer and do you don’t actually need an extra set of hubs.
Nice testing and pics in the sand there btw
