    Looks like a joke to me. Those appear to be concept bikes that have little or no chance of ever making it to a showroom floor.

    Were the pics taken from The Jetsons?

    "Specialized Viper

    We're proud of our Viper, and there's a good reason for it. This innovative machine has attitude. It's one of the first bikes in the world to have no rear hub. That's right, no rear hub. The rear wheel has a special magnetically polarized rim that is suspended inside the frame, where it floats inside a magnetic suspension field."

    Haha

    Wouldn't that mess with your cyclometer? It could also be a b*tch on train tracks!

    I wasted a solid 15 minutes of my life doing that Specialized factory tour thing and I got to read about all of those hilarious protoypes. They even debuted "the world's oldest mountain bike" and it was just a joke. It was a Flinstones style constructed bike.

    I also got to enter a draw to win a decibel helmet! I lost!

    That was a funny bike. Loved the helmet that matched the bike. Thought of taking my old helmet, shove it in the mud, let dry. Then fasten a chicken bone to the front. Viola! you have a replica.
