I don't know what shocks me more....

The fact that there is actually a "Cadillac Escalade" bike, or the original purchase price

Where the hell do you even buy a Cadillac bike? Certainly not a reputable LBS. Maybe the Cadillac dealer?

Pretty sure the seller's way off on the MSRP. They could probably be found at Target and similar stores, just like the good ol' GMC Denali bike.

EDIT: well, I'll be damned, the seller's only pumping up the MSRP by $50, even though I'm sure the typical retail would be around $300...

Wasn't the Escalade voted 'Worst Vehicle' by CR? I wonder if the $300 bike holds up better than the $50K SUV. In either case it's a matter of finding a bigger dumb ass to unload your problem on.

If anyone who bought this bike were to tell me about how proud they were about their purchase I think I would have to walk away in frustration. Sigh.

What, the Internal, multi linkage worm drive setup wasn't insanely impractical and pointless enough for you!?
