    Will a dep store bike hold up?

    I recently got my new trek 4900. I want to become a serious and exteremely good montain biker, but i dont want to screw up and ruin my new bike since I'm sort of a beginner, so I am going to use my older bike to learn stuf and become bettter blah blah blah. But my previous bike is from walmart (or someplace like that), and sinse these bikes usually have bad quality, would it hold up? Its steel, if that helps.

    Dump the wally-world bike. Anything that would hurt the Trek would probably be down right dangerous on the wally-world. Don't worry about it, the Trek can take a beating.

    Do not take your walmark bike off road. They're not designed for that kind of thing. I've seen people get hurt (some really bad) when they do that. These bikes might look like a mtn bike but they not. They are designed to handle the kind of abuse that your 4900 will.
