    "You Need This" - the inflatable Russian trail bike

    Thought I'ld throw this out for any newbies....this video surfaces here about twice per year and really stimulates interest. Makes me want to check the basement for my inner tube patch kit.

    I still really want one. I don't NEED one. I have no place to ride one. But the WANT AND COVET is strong for this bike!

    I can't help but wonder how those tires would fare in a field of soybean stubble?

    There supposedly is a more heavy duty 74 kilo kit with serious off road tires, the 2 x 2 Taurus 2M....stubble proof?
    I still love the base 2 x 2 Taurus model and it's add copy "the weight of only 50 kg and traction on both wheels allow any territorial acrobatics"

    Only 35,000 rubles (~$525) for the 2x2 Tauras kit if only they ever become available.

    If somebody was smart they would import these and sell them here.....if that is they mass produce them. I for one don't need it but would try very hard to buy one
