Anybody seen/ridden one? Nothing comes close to this parts spec in price, and the suspension technology is obviously based upon GT's I-Drive.

I've ridden a Schwinn Rocket with similar suspension, it seemed to do very well, one of the first FS bikes I could stand up and hammer on without feeling like I was on pogo stick.
