    I'd buy a dirtbike if I wanted something like that. I'd rather pedal....

    Dude, just think of the air you could've gotten on Crabapple Hits with that thing.

    Probably about the same if you pedaled a couple times.

    It IS a dirtbike. That's what you'd be buying. But you try to find another dirtbike that weighs less than 90 pounds and can take a full on beating from a normal sized adult.

    I would gap crabapple hits on this bitch. One handed to protect my bad wrist. Which would allow me to touch myself with my bad hand. That's why I call it my "bad hand." Because it's very very bad.

    You call it a dirtbike, I call it a 90 lb MTB with a motor....

    It's taken a lot of years to not get too far, is all I can say.

    In '69 I had a 100cc dirt bike with a chromoly frame (that I'm sure was not nearly as nice-handling, admittedly) that only weighed 155 lbs. with a half-tank of gas and a rotary valve two-stroke mill that probably put out twice the HP of that thing.

    I thought this thread was going to be about the Zero MX from MTB designer Neal Saiki:

    absolutely. you make this thing stealth quite and I might think twice, but what the point if I can't take it on MTB trails?
