Default Failed marketing spinoff

Probably nice bikes, but proof you can't really sell everything by putting a logo on it and charging an extra 30 percent.

My boss bought one for his son, who is now the envy of the whole block. Actually a pretty well engineered product. And the thing is RED!

For $1300 on sale, it better come equipped with a midget who blows me as I ride.

That's pretty cheap compared to some mountain bikes. Say a Mountain Cycle Shockwave 9.5 or something like this:

I paid about $1300 for each of my bikes. A couple months ago, I had a reasonably clean NA and a GMC 3500-chassis van in my driveway. Together, they cost me less than either of my bikes. Sold the NA. Improvements to the van are getting it up toward mountain bike cost level now. Yes, I live in a kinda weird world.

I guess I didn't look at that one close enough. My boss bought a Ferrari branded bike, but it was off ebay, and he spent a lot less than that. More like 6 or 7 hundred. His kid is 11 or so.

I guess the Ferrari bikes are that much more special than the Lambo bikes they sell at Walmart for $100.
