    Anyone heard of a Proton T-Bolt/EPX TerraShark?

    As the thread title states/mentions, has anyone here heard of a Proton T-Bolt that is based on the EPX TerraShark? I'm from Malaysia and the bike is quite popular here due to it's low price. It's USD200 after conversion. Heres a picture of it:

    wow, if this website :http://www.proton2020.com/tbolt-Specs.asp is any true indication, then that's a decently spec'd bike for 200USD. Not sure which model is only 200, but seems like a good deal.

    It's a great decently spec'd bike. The base model is USD200 after conversion. I can confirm that it's base model because I've got one.

    That's absurd! I'm not up on my economics, so why does the equivalent of a ~$600(?) bike cost so much less in Malaysia? Is there really that much of a disparity between our currencies?

    It's not absurd, I'm speaking the truth and I swear it on my own grave. The bike was actually sold at USD750 (That was about 5 years ago). Now the manufacturing factory had to close down due to financial problems and the bike (last batch without warranty) is sold at USD250. Therefore, the bike doesn't have warranty. It's carbon fibre by the way, one of the cheapest carbon fibre frames in the world. PS: There have been occasions of the frame breaking.

    Sounds shilly. The guy asks about a bike in the first post (which also has a link to misleading link to Image Shack), then praises it in the second. He also has his bike with fill spec in the signature.
    Generic Joke

    Huh? Not really understanding what you mean? I'm a newbie and am not sure on how to upload photos.
