I rode one of those bikes and they are really fun! You have to ride like crazy to get very far. Not efficient but what a conversation piece. I think they are around $100.00 (US).

Wait a minute, are we missing the details, guys? The XCer on the left is on the lighter frame, clipped in while his DH buddy on the right has the beefier shocks with platforms.

That is from Bike magazine. The review they did was the best thing I've read in a mag in a long time.

I saw a kid (probably about 16-17 years old) the other day on my way to work riding one of these.
