ok. ive had a boring week and have been daydreaming in class. i got thinking, has anyone ever gone down a ski slope (with snow) on a bc.? and to stop it from rolling down the hill when you fall, bolt snowboard bindings to your plates, and strap your snowboard boots to them.
any feedback reguarding how crazy i am, any problems, or if youve done it would be appreciated.
It isn’t crazy, i would want to try it someday. Does that make me crazy? Yeah maybe. haha You should try it. If it turns out successful, it may become a new sport. Something like BCing (as in BC skiing :)) or these BSF (BC Skiing Fresstyle) BST (BC Skiing Trials)
I was thinking about this to just my idea was a little different. My idea was to get a ski about three foot long and take just the hub and plates instead of the whole wheel. I don’t know if it would work or not but I might try it one day
whats a BC ?? Your idea sounds sorta like mine, i want to put a ski on the bottom of my wheel, and try to make it downt the run. Someone said that i would want the bearings to be fixed, but i was thinkin to properly carve you would need to move the seat all over the place…
I have had this bc ski idea for a really long time now. I have a design for the bcski, but just havn’t motivated myself to actual build one, probably because i don’t live near the snow. I was just going to make one for all the bc wheelers out there on unicyclist.com. Just reading this makes me want to put time aside and start building the bcski beacuse i didn’t know so many knew of this idea. Just as Ricky was saying, it involves one ski. This ski would either be a freestyle based ski or a ski board ski (wide skis). (Both skis are very short). The ski board has a nice 4 bolt pattern to construct the vertical frame which the bc plates would attatch to. has anyone thought of this type of setup before?
