    Hummer Tactical Mtn Bike & Eau De Toilette

    When driving the most obnoxious vehicle on the planet gets boring, it's time to get on your Hummer Tactical Mountain Bike and practice Special Ops maneuvers.

    And when the day is done, don't bother taking a shower, just a couple of squirts of Hummer Eau De Toilette and you're set for the evening!

    Hehe- They've been trying to market this same bike to police/military for a while. Aside from the frame, the last specs I saw were pretty dreadful.

    As to the fragrance....Perhaps the less said the better.

    I saw the fragrance a while back on an airbase, and nobody buys them...

    I didn't see anyone in any Hummers there either, I guess because they drive military ones on the job already...

    They're marketing it as an H3 accesory, which is the smallest Hummer. Oh well... its still heavy and ugly.

    They have one of the Hummer folding bikes at Sams Club for about $400. I was amazed that it came with cheap Tourney deraillers. You would think it would come with Alivio at that price range.

    "Once on the ground, the mountain bike traverses terrain silently at high speeds, with no thermal or acoustic radar signature."

    OMG, are they joking? Marketing is really pathetic. But I guess the average Hummer consumer isn't that bright...

    The lack of thermal and acoustic radar signature is exactly why I ride my fixie. You never know when armed communist ninjas might be tracking your every movement. Unfortunately, the tell-tale clack clack clack of a derailluer could be all it takes for them to detect your secret OP mission and kill you with a ninja star.

    ROCK ON HUMMER BIKE!! YEAH!! USA USA USA !!!

    peace,

    That BMW road bike looks pretty nice, but for 4K, I'd expect more CF than just forks and handlebars on an Alu frame. Hell, you can get a brand new bottom of the line Allez with CF Fork and bars for under a grand. Ksyrium wheels and Dura-Ace components though, at least they splurged there. I'd say you are paying at least $2500 for the BMW badging and paint job on that bike.

    Bah, those things are utter garbage...They are just rebadged Montague folding bikes. Basically imgaine a wal-mart bike with half-arse decent components.

    THis is a far better buy, although not folding: http://www.raleighusa.com/items.asp?...temid=208&va=0

    The sound of a brake being applied could have the same effect !! Might as well not have one. Make sure every part of the bike is flat black too. This must be why tights and head covers are all black.
