I am writing this review concerning the cheap, crap quality of the bicycles that wal-mart sells. I had one bicycle from wal-mart that while you would be riding real fast on it, all of a sudden the handle grips would come off in your hand and your hand would be mid-air holding the grip.
Very dangerous. They shouldn't slip off like that. And another wal-mart bicycle of mine had the handlebars completely turn upside down, leaving me to fall real hard on the pavement. I could have been killed.
I never had anything like that happen to me with bicycles that I had bought from the bicycle stores. I was at the bicycle store once getting a flat tire fixed and they were all talking about how they have people going in there all the time with bicycles that they bought from wal-mart and they were saying how they were all very cheaply made with crap quality materials. The owner joked "A Wal-Mart Bicycle Will Explode On You" Wal-Mart bicycles are very dangerous. You shouldn't have handle-bar grips coming off in your hand mid air or have the handlebars collapsing making you fall to the pavement.
You get what you pay for when you buy one of those cheap bicycles from Wal-Mart. They are so cheap because they are made of the lowest quality materials possible. They get flat tires alot too.Also, The Wal-Mart Bicycle with the handlebar grips coming off in mid air had the pole for the seat break after riding only a few miles and I had to replace it with a seat from a junk bicycle. I would advise anyone, especially parents against buying any bicycle from Wal-Mart because you get become seriously injured.
You are much better off going to a bicycle store and paying five times as much money for a good, quality made bicycle. A $89 Bicycle isn't a good deal if it only lasts you a couple of months. What a Rip-Off! The one with the handlebars that came off was $129.
A complete rip off. With all of the problems I had with them they were very much overpriced and not worth the time wasting on. If I can talk just one person out there into not buying a cheap crap-quality bicycle from Wal-Mart, and thus preventing them from becoming injured, then I will be satisfied. even though there is no hope for getting any money back for the crap wal-mart bicycle that I now have.
Hey, it hurt real bad when my handlebars flipped over causing me to hit the cement. So,"Let The Wal-Mart Bicycle Buyer Beware!
You May think That You Are Getting a Good Deal Buying A Cheap Bicycle From Wal-Mart, But You're Not! You Are Much Better Off Buying A Quality Made Bicycle From A Bicycle Store"
