    Casually browing alibaba and came across this...

    It could be viewed as stupidity or genius. I think it's utter genius! It's even got suspension on the small side wheels!

    It's gotta weigh a ton. Training wheels? Sorry, but I can't see it. Where would you ride it?

    Cheap? I just checked out the link. $350-380/piece. 10 piece minimum order.
    Wonder if that includes shipping from China.

    So this is what happens when the guy in China says "I don't want to just manufacture or copy some North American or European product, I want to come up with something on my own!"

    Nope. A lot of Chinese products are spec'd by Americans that love selling crap to other Americans. These two bikes have redneck American written all over them.

    If we can get the price down to 300 by losing the training wheels and chain guard I'm in for a group buy.

    I'm not sure what it's for, I'd actually be interested in the target market for this. It might well be genius for some group of people like rural elderly or a mailcarrier fitted with panniers? Maybe on a large construction site?

    I can't, for the life of me, think of a better bike for riding around a campground while intoxicated.

    That's the first use of reverse stem/s I've seen, and finally a bar that's appropriate for my lefty. If I only use the RH one and the stem it will stop me going in circles.

    I'm waiting for the chinese carbon version that'll clear the new Espen W 5.5 in the rear. Then I'm going to mount skis where the training wheels are, and this is going to be my badass trail groomer.

    Better stick a YZ450 motor in it or start doing a lot of heavy squats!

    For $350 I'd buy one. The slightly higher spec Rungu is $3,500. Price gouging?
