Just saw the write up in the latest Dirt Rider so I went to their site for a looksee. Check out the action movie here.

Still can't do bar spins on it. There is a small story in the latest Cycle World on that too. They say it weighs 80lbs. ( in a good way) I don't think it will be long before we see half-pipes 3X the size they have today and a new event at the next X Games called MotoBMX (or something like that).

There was a thread a bit ago Arch (you musta been riding ) with a gas powered bike like that (might be the same one) and a BATTERY powered electric one. The battery powered electric one had more power and better specs than the (I think) CRF250 except for range Damn cool toys!

can't find the link...

$?

Any idea on the price (or am I just missing it on the web site?) Man!! That looks like a lot of fun.

"foot loose commuting through city streets" could this be street legal??

The electric one was schweet. Enough guts to run small class supermoto and about a half hour to an hour or so on a charge. Plus it charged in 20 minutes (battery technology is taking off! ).

i think it was around $8,000... but you could have them setup the suspension for 60 foot drops (not a typo).

damn man, talk about an unfair reputation!!!

to set the record straight: some guy in a pickup truck says he looked right, didn't see me, looked left, thought he had enough time to cross the street and didn't look right again - pulled out and nailed me. i call that getting struck by lightning.
