    Yeah boyyee! Can you get it pimped? Like maybe a LCD Screen on the stem? Perhaps some machined wheels? And of course lowered.

    Call me cynical if you must, but i just don't see the point of a "Cadillac" bicycle, you're just paying for the name and novelty factor, right?

    how is it any different from the other mainstream bikes (aside from having a Caddy pricetag and nameplate)

    it's the same thing as the escalade SUV, why pay extra money for useless cosmetic crap and a squishy, non off-road capable suspension, when you can purchase a far more rugged (and less expensive) Chevy Suburban/Tahoe, it's the same thing, but minus the useless cosmetic frippery

    maybe i'm a traditionalist, but i don't see the point of paying extra for useless cosmetic crap that does nothing to enhance performance, the only upgrades i put on my car and/or bike are things that actually *increase* performance

    please explain to me the reasons for building a "Cadillac" bike (or SUV for that matter...)

    Are those HMX2 brakes ?
    Eitherway I totally agree about buying a name it's silly but if you have cash to burn then I suppose that's a luxury I don't allow myself. Anyone remember those BMW bikes ...hehe

    If you're rolling an Escalade, you gots to roll right.

    I mean, I would be running 26" spinners on that sucker, drop it down a bit, maybe throw a couple of 12" woofers in there. I might even need to get a gold toof!

    BTW, those look like either rebadged K2's or Raleigh's.

    I wouldn't be surprise if those are rebadged KHS frames. Tubing, design and details look very similar to the KHS AM line. Which is not a bad thing, I dig KHS bikes. Currently own two of them.

    Those are the Shimano mechs, similar to the ones on the base Kona models. That bike ain't that badly spec'd, except to those brakes. Gotta have hydraulics on a Caddy, so why not the brakes!

    I remember the BMW bike. HUMMER also has that rebadged folding bike. I wonder how much they sell that bike for? The JEEP bikes are also pretty bad. Maybe that rebadged Christini maybe alright.

    (then again, it was a clearance model and the price had been drastically reduced, i have no delusions about the thing, i *know* it's a basic, somewhat mediocre, bike)

    Bikes for people that don't ride bikes

    But have an abundance of cash and want to look "edgy and adventurous" on their way to clog up the local MUT.
    "There are those who would say there's something pathological about the need to ride, and they're probably on to something. I'd wager though that most of the society-approved compulsions leave deeper scars in the psyche than a need to go and ride a bicycle on a mountain." Cam McRea

    I don't think I would ever buy a Cadillac car, not that I would buy a Cadillac bike...

    There are also LX & XT versions which are probably more expensive.

    This is the only Fila bike I'd ride.

    the red one is supposedly a limited edition only given to limited edition "victory red" hummer owners. i bought mine from someone on ebay that had no use for it.

    i like this bike because i seriously can stuff it in the trunk without any problems, and it's pretty light (26-27lbs) for me. but it seriously needed a upgrade in parts when i first got it.
