Friday Photo - Zip Tie Bike Tires

Do your Bike Tires Need Extra Grip? (Photo courtesy of LifeHacker)
One innovative cyclist came up with a novel way of getting traction while riding his bike on ice and snow. He used zip ties every couple inches on his tires. He reports that he can maneuver confidently with these on snowpack, and yet they aren't too bad on short stretches of bare pavement.

Please note that this bike has disc brakes. Don't try this if you have standard brakes, because the zip ties will interfere with your braking.
