Neiman Marcus is a first class store. :thumbup:
You need a BIG checkbook to shop there.

I've seen this (or a similar bike) in some magazine adds. Don't remember them being that expensive.
For $4100 you can get a really nice bike and IMHO this one isn't it.

That looks like a Christini. Check out their website for more information. It's an interesting concept. I'd like to ride one sometime to see how it works. I wonder if the extra traction makes up for the extra weight. The price seems kind of steep.

Here's a chance to pick one up "cheap" at Ebay.

The bike itself isn't a bad bike, and if the bike pictured is the one you get, it's a really good deal. But, the description doesn't match the picture. Caveat Emptor! The pic shows XTR cranks, and the description states LX/XT.

The suspension design is a 4-bar linkage, but note that the rear pivot is on the seat stay, not the chain stay, so it's not a Horst Linkage, (not fully active). This design will "brake jack" while applying the brake on descents, the bike will buck!

Don't know about the AWD aspects.

The front wheel is driven by a flexible shaft that runs through the frame, from the crankset to the front hub. Check out the Christini website I mentioned above.

I looked at the website and read the literature they provided. I refrenced the picture and can't still picture it.

For many, many years I have heard the store in the original post referred to as Needless Markup.

Cheers...Gary

There is a revolving driveshaft that runs from the crankset, through the downtube and into the headtube. There is a junction in the headtube. The driveshaft turns another shaft that runs down through the inside of one fork leg and turns the hub on the front wheel. The front hub has a freewheel mechanism.

At least that's how it looks to me.
