    but pushbike is not.

    Awesome idea, far out of my price range.

    Maybe someday though!

    Well amidst all the BS argument about bicycles and motorcycles I put myself on the list for one of the FX bikes. We will see if it ever makes it across the pond from New Zealand to the USA. Hope so. I could have a lot of fun goofing around on one of those things!

    Enough already with the bicycle vs motorcycle stuff! Just ride!

    i didnt know that was a question...man, Im sorry for that...yet thanks for calling me a fool!:evil

    like most things it depends on the quality...for example a lot of motorcycle shocks are claimed to not be rebuildable yet they are...

    so thats probably what happened at your cycle shop...like most dealers most cycle shops suck mechanic wise...you need a specialized store that can do it for you...this is not to say that all suspension is rebuildable...
    anyways

    more pics of the cool bike...

    later

    If I had the money, I would buy one in a heart beat!

    To bypass a lot of EPA hassle you could sell it as a "kit" bike with proper DOT bits and assemble it yourself. Bike cost and shipping would be cheaper as well.

    Shush you. We want lightweight bikes in CA too. And it's a big market - my county has more people in it than your state :lol3

    It's a great idea, but would be SHOCKED if this actually happens (street-legal version).

    Start with 48 and then go for 50, if it is successful. The engine looks like a CT110ish/Lifan motor which may already be legal in many states. Or even in the country of California :D

    Pedals put it in a whole other category, legally speaking. Opens up a lot of additional riding, but who wants to ride something with floating pedals when you don't need them?

    ok , i have to wade in here , being a kiwi (for those of you that dont know a KIWI is our native bird and a nick name for all new zealanders) yes NZ is way down south ,next stop the antartic ...some movies stars yes polar bears no , penguins yes ...polar bears are in the north only , tasmainian devils are over in australia ....this bike is sweet , i saw it on our local news some time back , i love it .... kiwis are known for innovation .....carbon fibre britten for example ....(world beater ) the carbon fibre framed martin jetpack ....
    russel crowe gets to stay in aussie (sorry)
    new zealanders and australians have been mates for years ... shed blood togeather in many wars and conflicts (anzacs) we have a proud history of playing hard on the field then having a beer afterwards , . to be mistaken for an aussie is no insult to me .... entering the global market is a scary proposition...and i take my hat of to anyone who has the guts to try .....
