- What size tires to make your bike float?
You should be able to work it out, from the weight of you and the bike, calculate the volume of water that needs to be displaced, figure out volume of tyre required to do that, then take account of things like wheel size, how high you want to be above the water etc. Might be tiresome (geddit) if your feet are dipping in the sea as you pedal.Posted 5 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
I do like the way he chose a car caliper rather than a motorbike one- building a monster bike is insane but using a car caliper is illogical
Incidentally, you’re thinking about this the wrong way. The solution isn’t bigger tyres- it’s lots more normal size tyres!
