    As far as I can tell an independent character may join a unit with a different type of movement (bike, foot, jetpack). There are certain characters that MUST purchase a particular type of movement if the squad/retinue/bodyguard they are with has that type of movement, but it is stated in the character's description. The rulebook even goes as far as to say "...the combined unit moves and assaults at the speed of the slowest model..." so be careful you don't trap your character into a bad situation.

    I haven't really researched this answer, but so far can find nothing that says no. If anyone finds something please add it to this thread.

    I would go with wolfraider and say yes, though obvously the bike cannot jump over terrain like the packs can so the IC would limit them. In addition, the bike would not be able to turbo boost since the jump packs do not have this ability. However, it does not really make sense how the unit would move. I mean the jump packs can't just move 12" on the ground, they do it ignoring terrain, but the bike does not so would the bike and jump packs have to move 6" each as this is the slowest type?(because the jump packers now have to walk.) Interesting question.
