    What do you mean spare tubes? This thing is meant to ride tubeless. I'm setting mine up ghetto tubeless with a 29" tube split down the middle. With the home brew (version WSS 1) I will be rolling smooth.

    Now am I going to have to go to Walmart to get some real info on these things? I'm really only interested in the rims and tires... and that sweet chain guard.

    Once again, STFU if you REALLY don't want to get into it. Something tells me that statement wasn't an honest one.
    I'll duck out if you are going to derail. Have at it.

    That bike would be great for it's intended purpose, cruising the beach. You guys are talking about it like it's meant to replace your current rides. Did you happen to notice the cruiser handlebars, coaster brake and beach cruiser frame? Boardwalk speeds are usually under 5 mph so I don't really think slowing it down is going to be that big of an issue.

    All your bikes are made in Taiwan

    If you hate foreign made items so much how come you have a list of bikes that are, at best, made in Taiwan. There are small US bike builders who could suppy your frames if you want to back them and spend the money.

    PS: I also do not shop at Walmart becasue I hate the shopping experience there and I do make an attempt to buy US made products from small stores when possible.

    Info on wheels and tires please. Bead seat diameter would be most excellent. TIA.

    I would actually see more "wellness" in bringing 36ers into the Walmart. For 36ers there are more frames tyres, rims. They are more established if we even can call them "estalished". Walmart would make them more popular and create more chances of manufacturers coming up with better quality tyres and rims for 36ers.
    I love big wheel but right now another standard may make the market too much spread thin, just like it is now with 584mm rim/27,5ers/650b. Less AM tyres for 29ers are produced and even Maxxis minion was recalled for beta testing and perhaps replaced with smaller 27,5" version. This occurence is called cannibalizm. I do not want 36er trend to be partaged with 32ers right now. 32ers will be awesome but once that there is more equipment for 36ers. Like it or not. There is only a limited volume Taiwan can produce. It cannot make dozens of thousands of tyres in all twenty-like wheelsizes. The lesser the volume the higher the price tag.

    32er is the kiss of death to your 36er dream.

    Why not 32er? Cloxxki's idea.
    Why 29? Why not 32?

    Wouldn't it be cool if it were not really a 32er? I wonder if those wheels have any flex?

    I do buy ammo from Walmart for my sidearms when I'm packin' on my city park rides. No mom and poppers around me that carry the stuff.

    Someone PLEASE!!!!!!!! Buy one of these! $200 bucks is cheaper than a my freeking seat-post! To bad i blew every penny of my "husband play money" for the next decade or I would be all over this. Can you image the fun you could have on a POS beater clown bike like this on singletrack!

    This needs trail testing by a mountain biker just for the grins and giggles.

    Genesis?

    They must be going after that Christian middle America crowd that only believes in the "eye for eye" Old Testament.
