    True - That's when the beast will end up in the landfill with the rest of the beasts and other dept store MTBs.

    It's exactly what fat biking needed - something cheap, simple, reliable-enough, and servicable for kids.

    They likely wont have to the strength or weight to bend axles or break the coaster hub. They can grow into the bike and out of it too. Geared down a tad it should be rideable for most.

    Oh no you don't. Posting pictures of a cute kid on that thing is not enough to overcome the facts.

    Can you gear the beast low enough that a kid can pedal it's 40lbs+ bulk through sand or snow?

    Or is it just something to goof with on the MUP?

    And have Adam Craig ride it, so we can add that to the merge. We haven't seen enough "FAT BIKE AT SEA OTTER!!!" threads yet.

    I think we need a "Turd Polishing" sub-forum for this Walmart bike crap.

    Honestly, to tinker and swap cheap parts...this is no different than all the other cheap Walmart mountain bikes that everyone bashes on. Except this one is fatty so it's cool....
    Interesting is all i have to say.

    Well, many have wasted the first $200, and from what I'm seeing some on here are wasting at least that much on top of the first amount, so why not another grand. Besides, my comment above was in fun. That said, many people put a lot of money into items not worthy of any additional money in all sorts of activities.

    Ah, you're missing the point.

    You've got to make it yourself to be a true Manuel Beastly of Walgoose modification.

    Yeah, a piece of steel pipe and some hose clamps would work fine.

    I'm sure glad my Father didn't adhere to this philosophy. I grew up liking to ride.

    I went to our local Walmart the other day and my local Walmart doesn't have any fat tire bikes. I don't think they even exist.

    Many fatbikers come from different cycling backgrounds, some don't at all! I have no opinion on this walmart fatbike, but if i own one i couldn't justify to my self talking about a $200 walmart bike on the Internet

    Not a lefty nor tubeless but...anyone notice the price difference between the Carver Ti PryBar and the Thomson units? Same bar but with different bends.

    Thomson Ti...$249.95

    Carver Ti...$99.95

    Mongoose effect upon the free market?

    No, you're wrong. The Carver bar is 100g lighter.
    Not sure what this has to do with the W***Goose, though.
    Carver's been selling their Taiwan-built Ti frames and bars at low prices for years.
    And Thomson? Dumb move in my book to dilute their brand by selling Taiwan-made stuff, especially at those prices.
