I’m still not overly convinced that hybrid bicycles are the way to go. Around NYC we see them all the time, but they generally have some type of delivery person behind the bars. In that application I can totally see their usefulness, but as an exercise machine using a hybrid bike seems like a cop-out to me. Others, like the guys over at M55 Bikes however don’t seem to agree. You see they’ve just designed what may in fact be the ultimate in two-wheeled, people assisted mobility. Meet the M55 Beast, a bicycle with the looks of a professional downhill racer and infused technology even the Terminator would appreciate.
I’m not a cyclist per say, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t find this thing to be super cool. Designed for full-on cross country excursions, the Beast was built to not only be rugged by utilizing the best components such as Brembo brakes and Fox suspension, but it was also designed to move. How does 45 mph and up to 75 miles on a charge sound – pretty damn cool right? Pricing is not available as of yet, but you can pretty much bet that this sucker is going to be big money. But hey… if you’re looking for the best bike, with the best components, combined with some kick-ass technology then the M55 Beast may just be the ride for you.
