    lol very amuzing. More for a kiddies xmas box rather than anything you would choose if you decided to take up offroad cycling. never know, few years down the line we might see a full range

    To me they just look like old restickered saracen/ammaco bikes. Not worth it atall IMO. for VXR type stuff i'd expect a half decent downhill bike, not a flimsy, cheap, 'look at me ive got suspension that doesnt work but it looks cool' kind of dad bike.

    the humvee bike on the otherhand, rocks






    The Hummer Tactical Mountain Bike shares many similarities with its big brother, the Hummer vehicle: military heritage, off-road capabilities and innovation in design.

    The Hummer Tactical Mountain Bike is available in three models: the Hummer H3, Hummer LX and Hummer XT. All Models use Montague's patented military folding system, developed to allow Paratroopers an easy exit from military aircraft with a full-size mountain bike. Meticulously handcrafted from aircraft grade lightweight aluminum, the bike folds in less than 30 seconds - without the use of tools.

    Developed for extreme riding, the Hummer Tactical Mountain Bike can be stored inside your HUMMER, car, boat, plane, closet of wherever else you stash your gear.

    The hummer looks sweet, looks well specced too but i bet it aint cheap!
    XT chainset and a pair of psylos, hydraulic disc up front and (what looks like) and XT rear V brake. Shame the frame looks a bit pants but certainly cant argue the practicality side, definitely serves its purpose
