    Boy that thing sure requires a wide stance and looks like it painfully forces the knees together. But, boy howdy, with the model working that contraption, I bet he will sell a few.

    I can see it now, this thing takes off and an entire group of male sports enthusiasts is easily recognized by their knock kneed walk.

    That treadmill bike would be a classic if it had a beer suspended by a stick just out of your reach.

    For those of you that were not around during the 1980's, Ross bikes was one of the first bike companies to offer a reasonably well appointed, affordable mt bike to the general public, by utilizing the pacific rim bike import resources of Japan and Taiwan. Prior to Ross bikes, mountain bikes had to be "custom" built by assembling from a list of hard to find parts, and the going price of a mt bike was around $700-1000. Ross brought the price level of mt bikes to $300-600.

    So THAT's the company that started outsourcing bikes to Asia, you must be so proud of that "innovation." Oh, look, another "amazing innovation." Funny how they both seem to be a waste of money. No offense, but I find it disgusting when companies move to Asia to compete (wagging my finger at Cannondale). Also, this "bike" costs over $500 when you could just walk/run for a workout (free) or get better quality and efficiency out of a real bike for the same price. I am sorry, but stuff like this makes me boil, especially when I can't go out riding.

    I thought the same thing, but after watching the video 15 times it came to me that the model is only making it look that way because she is trying to keep from spreading her thighs

    Really though, I am glad I came back to revisit this thread. I haven't laughed so much in a few days.

    I think it looks like a good idea.

    No problems with an uncomfortable saddle.
    No back pain.
    No bike shorts required.
    Faster than walking, and more fun than a treadmill.


    Obviously it has a lot of disadvantages too:
    Not meant for off road use.
    Slower than a road bike.

    What's wrong with the one you got elvez? C'mon own up to it. If you're thinking of buying one of these things you probably own one that you fancied up with your BeDazzler!! Just kidding.

    Whatever.......I haven't seen anything this cool since Whamo introduced the "roller racer" in 1983. Well maybe the coolest thing since the "pogo ball".

    roller racers where so awesome... my grade school had a ton of em we'd get to use during recess and gym

    as for the bikes... looks like fun to me ... different but fun... i wouldn't buy one... but i'd try one out if given the chance... just like a unicycle or whatever other oddities...

    if the eurotrash techno didn't convince me, the skank who looks like you need to bathe in penicillin after even touching her made me want to buy that contraption that doesn't seem to have the stability, durability, light weight, or proven reliability of a conventional bike.

    now get some hot b!tches and have them run around naked in the desert on belt drive carbon frame singlespeeds to jethro tull's aqualung and you might get me interested.

    I think they are actually targeting the fat arsed New Zealand market more.

    they need to reduce the Q factor to attract serious mtbrs. Anytime a company falls back on using a naked woman to push there product ie. marz. they are usually making up for a lack of quality.

    Yep, safe to say that the stepper is not for you. Fact is, if you try to ride it on a trail you will most likely die. Definitely not light weight but definitely is VERY durable. Though, I am not surprised that you don't like the stepper. After all, this IS a mountain bike board. Personally, I think that recumbent bikes look stupid. But to each his own. I submit to you that you would likely benefit from some cross training on the RR Stepper.

    I think you are out of line referring to the young lady as a 'skank'. I don't think you know her and I cannot blame her for getting paid. I also suspect that you are not a South Florida resident. No skanks that I know are looking to get on an exercise bike at sunrise after partying all night. Just so you know, you can find the skanks passed out at the all night Denny's or IHop.

    I doubt that you and the lady have anything in common anyway. I doubt that she EVER heard of Jethro Tull.
