The cycling world knows about the Gary Fisher-Subaru racing team, but now word is out that the automaker is launching its own line of bicycles in 2009, starting with a spendy steel hardtail XB model, reported to cost US$3,880.

But a friend of mine just bought a generator with a Robin-Subaru engine: it's not a boxer....
