    Rock Shox at Walmart?

    So my wife and I are wandering around Wal-Mart the other day and I decide to walk through the bike section. That's where I see a 29er made by Pacific with a Rock Shox fork. So my question is, Is Wal-mart stepping up, or does Rock Shox make a lower end shock for box bikes?

    The new decals look like they are for a Wal Mart bike...it makes perfect sense now

    Maybe the guy that claimed the 29er tires they sell are exactly the same as big name offerings will come here and claim this is just as good as any other rock shox.

    What? There was a Rock Shox product in that picture? All I could see was the color scheme on the bike in the background...

    Don't know much about the quality of W-Mart level Rockshox components but I sure see some hipster potential in that bike behind the IH.

    My wife and I saw that same bike there. We couldnt stop laughing because the rear shock has a fake plastic piggyback on it. You can kinda see it in your picture.

    LOL,IDK...I've seen Iron Horse (this past week even) at Sears,never Wal-Mart though. Still,I'd much rather come across someone on trail in need of a hand with a repair on one of these than not see em riding I just hope SRAM/RS/Truvativ doesn't go the way of Mongoos/Schwinn

    Rock Shox does have low end stuff just like everyone else....I would actually trust it more than some of the Suntour stuff I see.on the entry level bike shop's offerings.

    that entry level fork will get things done for beginners. Kind of surprised a walmart bike has that.

    but.... their description. must be some new type of fork. rock shock.:

    Aluminum 29" full suspension frame with Rock Shock XC28 for maximum shock absorbing performance
    Ahead stem with MTB riser bars creates a more controlled riding position

    Front and rear HL disc brakes provide high-performance stopping power
    Alloy crank set 42/32/22 with platform pedals
    Dual sided lock on handlebar grips

    it looks like the name on the downtube is upside down.
