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.
