Some of you will remember one of my early threads, in which I posed the question on using the boom to crane a lightweight dirtbike on and off.
well for various reasons it appeared that said idea was not quite as sound as I thought it was. But...
Yesterday I found a solution!!!!
Let me introduce the FX...
The way is was explained to me is that if you imagine a continuum with an enduro bike at one end and a mountain bike at the other, then the FX fits somewhere in the middle.
125cc (bigger models in pipeline)
Now at 125lb you could lift the bike on and off without a crane, you could even lift the bike (with care) onto a tender and presto you have transport when you arrive at the beach!
I have just reserved one of these bikes!
I think they are INSPIRED
And yes they have already thought about the sea air/corrosion issue!
And they have a 'Marine
' version with extra corrosion resistance and fully encapsulated electrics!!!
And at just $3'999 (((Brand new))) they are a bargain!
