    Yeah, I was surprised by the price...thought it would be higher

    With something in tow...the perfect beachcombing rig?

    The specs on the $6885 one doesnt say anything about it being fat.

    At the top of that column, it says "Mountain/Sand & Snow". I took "Sand & Snow" to mean the fat version.

    I mostly quit riding my Kawasaki because the riding areas are overrun with Quad-tards. Does this mean they will be ruining the MTB trails too?

    You will never see one of these on a MTB trail. I'm still waiting to run into someone on a fat bike and fatbikes are infinitely more plentiful than these quads.

    I get suspicious when videos use too many stills and very little action

    Why would any one ever drive a human powered quad? Utterly useless.. Its like making a bike with solid steel wheels.. Might turn a few heads but is utterly useless

    wow. with those closeups, the sub $7k price seems very reasonable.

    edit: looking closer, I don't see how they can make any profit at that price.

    what IGH is in that relay shaft/transmission setup?

    the rear diff looks too small to be anything but a spool.

    It could probably float over soft sand where my 4.8" tires would be getting bogged down.
