It's NOT a single speed if that's what you're asking. It's got two Chain rings on the front sprocket and 10 or 12 on the rear! So you've got a pretty good choice of gears. Plus they only run about 8-10 LBS pressure in the tires! And the shop guy said he's run them at 4 or 5 lbs. for extra traction!

I got LOT's of incredulous looks from the other MTB'rs while I was off on the side of the trail in the twigs n branches & logs and such! you REALLY can't believe what they'll ride over & thru until you take one there yourself!!! Apparently they held a winter Demo last year. I'm hoping they do that again next year! I really want to try one in the snow!!

Pictured model is the "Muckluck" I think! $2300 freakin' dollars!! Lower end models start at $1700! again!!!
