    yeah rubi's are nice, expensive but nice

    ARB Air lockers for both front and rear axles is nice when they are stock, not to mention the 32's that come stock with it :)

    AWD bike. that is bad ass. Jeep bikes have gone a long way, about 3-5 years ago, they were selling them right next to huffys at Sears.

    I haven't mountian bike in the longest time. That is the one thing that sucks about haveing a Sol. I cant even fit my bike in there when I take off the front AND rear tire. Wont fit in the trunk, it kinda fits in the front but then i can only go solo.

    From the page:

    AWD works whether you’re peddling or coasting. You will be able to descend with confidence and corner more aggressively due to added front wheel grip.

    CoooooooOOOooooooool. So it works when I'm trying to sell speakers out of a white van in the parking lot eh?

    Look at the price though. $2999 for a bike? You could buy a decent CRX or Hatchback for that.

    Nice and all but IMO it's not worth it.

    When your into a hobby you are that much more willing to spend cash on it

    I've seen ROLLER inline speed skates go for over 1200 bucks....
    I would stick with a $600 pair myself=)

    The new Rubicons come with 32" wheels, 2" body lift, and detroit locker STOCK.

    If I were to buy an kind of jeep, I would buy the new rubicon.

    Can anyone confirm this? If not please correct me.
