    Haha, I saw that hummer bike in sams club. It looks pretty odd, I think I'd rather one of those low end dahon folding bikes for about the same price.

    The caddilac... well, it looks alright, but if caddilac decides to make all kinds of different products it'll be confusing...

    Kent International of New Jersey is to produce Cadillac Bicycles for supply through the US IBD channel. Kent Bicycles are more usually available in big box outlets such as Walmart and Toys R Us. The press release announcing the move says: "Consumer Demand Drives Well-Known Automobile Brand to “Brake” Into the Bicycle Industry." Cadillac last lent its name to bicycles in the 1950s.

    Billed as the "ultimate expression on two wheels", Kent International will market six Cadillac-branded bicycles.

    There will be "two adventure-sport models emphasizing comfort, one All-Road multi-use trail bike, one mountain bicycle inspired by its Escalade SUV and a performance Road bicycle modeled after its CTS-V sports sedan."

    Ron Lippner, general manager of Cadillac Bicycles, said:

    “Cadillac Bicycles will be the benchmark for all bicycles with its advanced characteristics. We are committed to providing the consumer that values quality, style and performance with the ultimate riding experience. In a world where brand names often go unrecognized by many, we believe Cadillac Bicycles will stand out in a league of its own.”

    A statement from Kent International said Cadillac Bicycles will be available in "independent, specialty bike shops for $500 to $1900."
    The Hummer bike is from Montague. You can find the same bike for far less direct from Montague. Montague bikes aren't bad.

    BTW, in case some of you don't know, Cadillac has sponsored a MTB team (Team Catera) in the past. They were riding Kleins.

    There was a Cadillac bicycle back in the late 1940s. I don't know if it was related to the automaker however.

    Personally, I would flip my impressions. The Cadillac bike is being produced by Kent Bicycles and despite Cadillac's claim that they will only be sold through IBDs, my guess is that there's a pretty good chance you'll see them at X-Mart. Kent typically produces bikes for the Toys 'R' Us and X-Mart market. The Hummer bike is actually made by Montague. The original design of that bike was a direct response to work done between Montague and DARPA to produce a paratrooper bike for the military.

    Absolutely.

    Back in WW2 bicycles were employed in a variety of commando type roles by the British and Allied forces. The Swiss Army had a bicycle unit up until recently too.



    The military has a history of using bicycles. In more recent times, there have been numerous studies on the use of bicycles for special operations type work.

    Hey I'm prepared to be wrong, I do lot of that . I'm familiar with Kent stuff there's a lot of it lying around campus. Montague I've never heard of. As for military use the Japanese army used bikes to transport the troops that took Singapore down the Mayasian peninsula during WWII. There were no roads as such and no railway lines so bicycles were used to transport troops and equipment.

    The Dummer¹ looks like a Klein Manta, the Cadillac looks like a Kona.

    ¹ My 6 yr. old called the H2™ that a couple of yrs. ago, and the names' stuck, for us anyway...

    It looks like it but it's nothing like it. The Klein Mantra is a full suspension URT design. The Hummer is a hardtail folding design.

    I know all the differences. I didn't post those pics to be criticized about mistaking them for the other's. I just thought I'd show a couple they "looked" like, that's all...

    This branding of things with automotive emblems, is this a trend? I saw some Jeep bicycles on the internet the other day. On the other hand, Porsche and Ferrari have been licensing their names for everything from sunglasses to hard drives for years, so why not.

    What's that quick-release lever sticking up in the middle of the Hummer bike's top frame? (Can't really call it a top tube.)

    i heard that Hummer bike tips the scales at over 50 lbs, and in the same article i read that us airtroopers were using them. I guess it helps them fall faster....

    I believe there is a ferrari bike, or maybe it's lamorghini, one of the 2, that is actually quite nice. It is a road bike, but, it is very top end, at nearly 6 or 7 grand.

    It's a Colnago with Ferrari graphics. And it's very very pricey at $8000.

    There was also a limited number of Ferrari MTBs.



    Colnago actually has a history with Ferrari and the CF was produced in the same factory that produces CF parts for Ferrari racecars.
