 Porsche FS Evolution,A Porsche's Design Studio Bicycle

Less than 25 miles, MINT, Never off Road

“The Optimum Pairing of Performance and Utility Built to Perform and Endure”

 “Vintage bike are similar to vintage sports cars in that they create lots of attention, while performing or parked by the side of the road!

It's different, it's rare, its built to last a life time.

Two-wheel Formula One Racer

Porsche Evolution FS Ultra Rare Mountain Bike only 50 produced for US market, Rare Carbon Fiber Spengle wheel set designed for this limited-production bike, hand Crafted in Germany
This is a very rare and amazing bike in fantastic shape! These were very exclusive when first sold by Porsche in 1999. The FS Evolution was the creation of the famous Porsche design studios AG Weissach, and hand built in Germany with top of the line components.

I had it hanging from my ceiling in my office it looks like its flying in the air and blows everyone away when they see it. She has so few miles from only 3 rides.

You will be hard pressed to find a nicer Porsche FS Evolution!!!  And they only go up in value, truly a rolling sculpture, a real art investment you can play with.. You will love looking at the beautiful hand welding, by German Craftsmen. un matched anywhere .The yellow paint scheme stops everybody in their tracks to get a look at her… when returning from the mechanics shop, I was mobbed by people looking and wanting to take pictures of this functional work of art.

Take her to the next Porsche Concourse de Elegance or German car show and show them what a real Zero Emissions Vehicle looks like!

Who knows you might win best of show! ! !

Following Review from Motor Trend

When Porsche's design studio decides to go after a marketplace, it rarely fails to impress. Such was the case when it released the FS Evolution mountain bike. The bike pictured here is that model. Suspension is adjustable both front and rear.  the forks are motorcycle-inspired upside-down design, delivering a staggering 140mm of wheel travel. The price tag weighs in at $10,612.

While the S (for "suspension") and the FS ("full suspension") models slipped quietly onto the scene last summer, the debut of its tour de force FS "Evo" model this year underscores Porsche's desire to expand its brand recognition. By offering the bikes through Neiman Marcus catalogs, Porsche dealerships and Porsche Design stores, the company hopes to sell about 1000 of these two-wheeled wunders this year. None is merely rebadged from a different manufacturer-all were designed at Porsche AG in Weissach, Germany, where a full 20 percent of Porsche's revenue is derived from designing products other than automobiles.

The specifications of the FS Evo bike are like those of a Formula One race car. The front suspension is a motorcycle-inspired design of inverted fork tubes rebounding via closed-cell elastomeric springs and coil springs located by composite double-triple clamps; the rear suspension is adjustable through an oil/air shock absorber; the wheels are made of carbon fiber; and the brakes are fully hydraulic discs squeezing cross-drilled rotors. Gear changes (27 are available) are made via top of the line Sachs Quartz  shifters ,derailleur’s, and Carbon Fiber  cranks while state-of-the-art Hope Disc Brakes claw at the decidedly low-tech dirt.

Riding the FS Evo at a pace or on a trail described as anything less than at-the-limit won't show you what this bike is all about. How does it handle? Like a Porsche. How do the brakes work? Like a Porsche. Compared to other full-suspension mountain bikes we've ridden, the Porsches feel far more precise, stable, and confident in any potential road-rash situation. Where other bikes tend to track the terrain, with the grooves, sand, or small rocks forcing the steering to go the way the ground dictates, the FS Evo has an amazing ability to manage this dangerous tendency, nearly eliminating what in car terms is called "bump steer." Several of the professional riders at the press introduction noticed that the Evo had an ability to save their backsides when they least expected it-when a rut in the dirt grabs a front tire and a different bike would've tossed its rider into the cactus as fast as you could say "prickly pear," the Evo merely rolls over the obstacle with a minimum of drama and the near emergency is over before you know it. I heard, "This bike saved my butt," more than once on the trail.

Mountain Bike Sizing

Use the sizing chart below to find the right sized mountain bike for you. Knowing your height and inseam measurements, you should be able to determine what size frame will be most comfortable for you. Of the two measurements, height and inseam, inseam is most important.

Mountain bikes are generally measured in frame size (inches), which is the distance from the center of the crank to the top of the frame at the seat tube.
