Carmichael Bike Photo

Just wanted to post a photo for those interested. Put the $20 there for size comparision. Haven't run it yet due to the weather. For the price, I think it will be a good starter bike.

It is big isn't it? There is a forum thread over on www.Wildhobbies.com about it. They have been in the process of putting a brushless motor in it, with plans for eventual nitro. No video yet, except of it running kit, but they say they will post clips of it running hopped-up as soon as they have it tweaked.

For the price, it might be fun to get one just to see how much abuse it can take .

Shaun,

Hope these pictures help? Looks like it's well made, and lots aluminum. I measured 20" overall lenght, and 11 1/4" tall to the handlebar.

Is the swingarm made of plastic?

I was just in a Radio Shack earlier today and asked about these. They could special order one, but the mgr. didn't think they would be getting more any time soon.

I may break down and order one anyway.

That bike's almost like the road bike setup,... check out the bearing housings on the main drive,... you could convert it to nitro!... I'm also wondering if Dave (CNR) would get onto it and make some hopup wheels, carbon plates, swingarm, etc... for it

Awesome, i've seen the vid of it running on some pretty gnarly terrain and it kept on going, that bike would run much better on a good rc offroad track!...

Thanks for the pics...
