015 Kit with skis for 26" MTB
This kit will fit bikes with 100 x 9mm threaded front, and 135 x 9mm threaded rear axle dropouts. Most cross-country mountain bikes have these axle sizes.
These brackets feature a silicone-lubricated, sealed axle bushing system that utilizes rubber O-rings to keep the lube in and water out. Be sure the O-rings are properly seated in their grooves before tightening the axle into place.
There are 5 holes on the stabilizer arm which allows the bungee to be positioned at the top for more rigid resistance or near the bottom to allow a smoother terrain-hugging ski motion. The stabilizer arm can be rotated to any angle to set the proper ski attitude (level or slightly tip-high).
These skis are ski-bike-specific 99cm twin tip ski-boards from Tngnt Skibikes, with a 50mm x 100mm insert pattern that allows you to bolt them to the brackets with no drilling. The ski is a stiff and durable sandwich construction with a 130mm tip width, 117mm waist width and 130mm tail width, featuring a 10 meter sidecut radius for easy turning and crisp edge-lock carving. This ski is ideal for off-piste riding, moderate powder and soft spring conditions.
The bungees are made of natural rubber which has much better cold weather performance than the common EPDM straps. If you want to replace worn out straps or add more straps to increase resistance, you can buy 10 natural rubber 15-inch bungees for $8.99 at uscargocontrol.com. The mounting holes will fit 40 x 40mm (which most skiboards use) or 100 x 50mm (which all Lenzsport skis use) mounting patterns. These brackets are 3" wide with an axle height of 6.4".
This kit comes with extruded aluminum foot pegs for super sure grip on any type of boot in any type of snow condition.
