    X1 thru X3 look like go-cart kits. X5 looks badass and it goes "upwards of eighty miles an hour."
    Maybe they shouldn't have put that in the description.

    I'd rather buy a Serotta.

    Please someone tell me they have one of these, so I can come over and punch you in the nutz.. that being said I will take it for a ride and probably have fun, but call it all sorts of names when im done.

    I'm gonna get one for Boo (the new cat). Might keep him from chewing on the damn tree lights.

    Fat tires, no TCO, and bargain pricing - what's not to like.
    But I will hold out for the Ti Rohloff belt drive version.

    I briefly rode a Hanebrink monster bike in the 90's. It looked something like the X1. It was actually pretty fun to ride-I'm sure it would be great on snow or soft sand.

    The original Fatbikes. If you lived on a beach, they'd be perfect.

    holy shinola I didn't even see that the X5 has a derailleur! I did think that it was weird for an electric ?motorcycle? to have 14 speeds since typically electric motors have enough torque that 1 will do. It is sold as a bicycle (e.g. no license required) and apparently has pedals that hide somewhere most of the time but can be used in the event of an emergency. Also I guess you're supposed to use your planet bike blinky cause it's got no lights or signals. Bizarro.

    I always like my brake levers to extend past the end of the grip (on the X5).
