    cadillac makes bikes? WHAT?!

    yeah dude. peep it. http://www.cadillacbikestore.com/


    oh man....imagine if they made a real track machine?! sure it would be pretty damned expensive but it would be worth the looks of wtf when owning a bike that has the FREAKING CADILLAC LOGO on the side of it. i wonder if you have to be over 65 to ride one.
    im a ****ing idiot. well, im happy to admit it.

    Im sure the correct statment is:

    "Cadillac licenses its brand to an unknown third party that may or may not manufacture the bikes it sells under that license."

    I'm picturing Travis Barker and Lance Armstrong getting stoned and coming up with this.

    Fixizzle. Trackizzle. Pistizzle.

    The bikes are made by Kent.

    http://www.kentbicycles.com

    These bikes look exceptionally cheaply made, and the copy is inane ("all bikes feature Shimano gears"). I'm surprised that GM would license the name to such a crappy operation.

    I'm pretty sure that there was a bicycle manufacturer in the 50s that was called Cadillac, and was unaffiliated with the car company.

    I've saw a GMC bicycle a few months ago. One of those full suspension doo-dads. Looked like a piece of crap.

    for $800 shipped, it's not a bad deal, and if you had a buddy who could look over it and make sure it was put together right, you'd have a great bike for a new roadie.

    Though I'm a little skeptical of the 18lb weight claim.
