    A fuel cell bike. Looks like it has a lot of Mtn. Bike components on it too. Fox Shock, Hope Brakes. I want one!

    Don't you hate having to try and explain the RM jokes to the spouse? They never get them.

    That bike would be cool to shuttle with (provided it has enough power) You could use that to tow two rider up a paved road or fireroad.

    After watching the promo video, that thing is officially hosed. Drop the plastic, stiffen up the fork, drop the center of gravity, give it some actual power and let someone under 70yrs old ride it and we'll see if there is a future. Dirt bikes rule, but these darn laws keep making them less and less legal. Hopefully something like this will turn up in non-kooked form and be a good substitute, until then, stick to pedaling and pre-2002 gasoline powered dirt bikes. At least in CA, damn red stickers suck.

    And I don't always have to explain the RM jokes to the girl, she spys on me here, so she gets most of them :eek:
