    I can't believe they are charging over $400 for this BSO

    https://www.walmart.com/ip/Men-s-Gla...-Blue/55412312

    Look at the way that rear suspension is designed.

    400 too much for them bike, should be 210-260 for those BSO's

    Its funny to think there are professional (engineers?) bike designers whose purpose is to come up with something ludicrous just for looks to sell.

    Yeah, check out some of the features:

    100% Brand New
    Brand: Generic
    Number of Speeds: 25 Speed
    Brake system: Front Aluminum Alloy V Brake, Back Electric vehicle brake
    (I guess the brake rotors in the photos are just for looks?)

    We guarantee the style is the same as shown in the pictures, but not the same performance on different bodies as on the model.

    No wonder chicks dig it.

    Wait a minute, if it doesn't have a brand, can it still be 100% brand new?

    Oh NOW I can see it. You have to unfocus your eyes and gaze for a bit. Then you can see that it's a bicycle.

    Isn't that the very definition?


    The non-moped one..
    -100% alloy front triangle
    -100% all terrain

    That's all the terrains compatible, all of them, for only $400. The OP is on to a good deal here and I understand his enthusiasm.

    I think I bought the wrong bike, I paid a lot more and mine didn't have a kickstand

    How do you get 25 speeds out of a 3X drivetrain?
