Combining the creativity and no-nonsense attitude of woodworking with the health and environmental benefits of bicycling, the new Ice Chipper, high carbide wheels from Freeoot, are fresh on the market. Designed to give superior performance in ice and snow, “Our micro-tiny carbide technology was developed for use in our saw blades,” said Rip Liegn, V.P. of product development. The idea for using them as bicycle wheels came about from an ill-advised tax deduction by one of our board members. His direction,'Make some stupid thing for my bicycle or I’m screwed!' really brought a sense of urgency to our design team."
Priced at $1,278 per wheel, you can find them at bike shops in select Southern and Western states with reputations for a lack of litigation. It is Freeoot’s strong recommendation that you stay far, far away from children and small animals when using the Ice Chippers. Always use safety gear.
