This isn’t the first Rampage rodeo for Pierre, a.k.a. PEF. He firmly explains his build strategy this way: “You have to stay on Earth, not so much on the moon.” Although the characteristics of the dirt may suggest Rampage is on another planet, it is important to remember our human limitations.

Chances are, you’re looking at this bike right now and thinking either ‘cool!’ or ‘What the hell?’ A fully rigid, coaster brake-equipped, 32-pound cruiser is a love or hate proposition.
