SUGG: Antarctic bicycle : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

Picture Cathy saying: "This week's challenge looks pretty simple at first glance. Build a bicycle. The tricky bit is that this bicycle has to run in a uniquely rugged environment, the Antarctic. If a bike's going to be any use there, it's got to handle ice and snow and sub-zero temperatures... and the rider's got to handle the bike while wearing heavy winter gear. "We're not going to Antarctica, I'm afraid. But our two teams will put their winter-cycles to the test in a relay race on our gruelling snow/ice track, while wearing mitts and boots."

try out designs during the build by testing them in a sand pit wear oven mitts and safety boots to ride bring along a few plastic penguins for atmosphere

based on a recent student design challenge reported on Discovery
