    Thats pretty intense, love to have a crack at that, its one of their existing frames, but modded massively! The ones I have seen don't have any sort of drive system!

    The thing is that a regular bike will work better on most kinds of snow than one of those contraptions.
    Beats me why people keep posting up pics of these so called 'snow bikes', maybe thye should actually go and try riding on snow themselves... ;)
    Kids are the best people.

    To be honest, I don't know! but i'm going ot let loose what i believe to be true, they are on a super8 and the original boxxers were 150mm (6") so for them to be boosted up to 9" in that day would of been rediculous as I believe even the super monster Ts were only 8". So i'm going to say i doubt that the boxxers are 9" ones, especially seeings the rear was only 8" also. But I could be worng, i'm just waiting for someone to come along and tell me I am.

    I imagine that they are for dh slopes on snow if they don't have any drive terrain of such, though it would be pretty mad going fast down the hills...:D

    You mean on the Super8? Good pick up. I honestly dunno. For their age, they should only be 178mm!

    The kits on the Turner and the Santa Cruz are a different mob I believe. The set up on the ETSX is the 'Ktrak' or something like that isnt it?

    If you wanna geeze a sick rig, check out 'Northern Legion' SMX bikes.
