That's a sharp ride. Porsche makes a nice bike also.

That's a pretty cool ride. Where does one get a benzbike? Surely not at the dealer!

My local MB dealer has some kind of Mercedes bike, but I don't think it was like the one pictured above, I think it was just a regular bicycle.

It also seemed pretty obvious to me that it was not actually made by MB, but instead by some existing bike manufacturer, with the MB logo stuck on it. I used to be into bikes, and from what I could tell from looking at its components, it was basically a $500 bike with a MB star and $2500 price tag stuck on it.

The MB BIKE is a peice of $hit for the money. It was manufactured by GT, I think, and the GT's with the features the MB bike has sell for around 450-500. I think you're paying for the star!

San Diego P.D. just got a number of the Mercedes Benz mountain bikes for their bike patrol unit. According to the S.D. Union-Tribune the bikes were donated to the department by the Mercedes Benz dealer, and they carry a tag of about $ 2,000 each. Sorry no pictures though.
