I saw the hummer bike in automobile mag when it first came out. It's a piece of crap. So is the BMW bike, the Ferrari bike and the VW bike. The only car/bike combo I've seen that is any good is the subaru/fisher bike. They paired up with the hifi 9.9. How awesome is a 10G bike on a 25G car.
Generally, these are no name bikes with questionable components. They license a name because it's cheaper than buying good parts. I'd say wait for a name brand bike with good components, then check here for price, because a lot people on CL know they're selling to newbies, and ask premium prices for older mid range bikes. Caveat emptor.
Generally speaking,at least here in Portland,Or.,good deals on bikes in Craigslist are very rare.The only "deals" I've seen are for expensive Freeride/DH bikes,or less expensive,in the $1500 range for maybe a little less than half.BTW.If you have to ask about the Hummer...read the post here on department store bikes.One more funny thing I see on Craigslist all the time is like an $89 bike new selling for $75 used! If you have really limited funds,check out yard/garage/estate sales and maybe bring a friend that knows bikes.Happy hunting.
