    Seat tube looks wicked slack. 1 1/8" quill stem?

    I read some where that Specialized is rolling the 32" out next year, this should set the industry on fire, seeing that this larger wheel will out preform anything else on the market today, can't wait!

    I'm calling pretty obvious BS on this.
    Spesh is a "toes in the water for 4 years" type of company when it comes to new wheel sizes.
    They are currently blowing off the 27.5 hype coming out of OEM deals and, well, you know how the 29er story went.

    A 32er? That might be worth buying a Walmart bike.

    Walmart haters will be puking themselves over this. They don't offer bikes in extra large so it doesn't affect me much. I did get some tubes from Wallyworld the other day and I got a saddle bag for my GFs new GT.

    But this offering will press other companies to produce 32s. I want one bad!

    They really don't look strange

    I thought they would look weird but when you posted a picture, they really did not look very different from a 29" bike.

    It's Walmart. Aren't you supposed to throw it away and buy a new one when it "breaks"?

    this must be the 650B answer to the yarder vs. 29er cruiser bike debate that has been going on for years

    I want proof that it's actually a 32" wheel/tire. I don't trust the sticker. Someone take a pic of the tire itself, or measure it.

    I ride one and love it. Fun as all get out. I smile just thinking about it.

    As for 32". That is interesting. I'm curious who makes these tires and rims as I am quite knowledgeable about the 36er goods and have not heard of any manufacturers making 32er stuff up to this point. If anyone can get some details pls post up.

    I'm sure everything about that bike is HEAVY. Maybe I'll have to drop by a Walmart soon to scope it out myself (not for purchase mind you, just curiosity).

    As for the Specialized comment above... I think it's pretty clear that's a joke. I laughed.

    Oh, and 29er tubes work just fine. Or you can take that Wallyworld POS tubeless

    Have fun slowing 45lbs of bike down with a coaster brake... I actually broke one awhile back. No fun at all.

    Actually just take the bike back for a refund or exchange. New bike = new tubes.

    Whodathunk Walmart would be on a leading edge of wheel-size development??
