The PVD TIE Advanced X1

An urban road bike w/4 inch disc rotors and a choice of fender clearance or 35c off road tires. Fresh looks and great style. This bike is supposed to be incredible in terms of design and execution but still blend into the backround in an effort to foil theves. While it is a pure flat bar road bike, it has the capacity to mount dirt tires and poke down trails.

The Name

Usually refered to as Darth Vader's TIE Fighter, the TIE Advanced X1 is a fast, sleek improvement on the standard issue TIE fighters. The baddest ride for the baddest actor.
