    but

    You are right, but... some ignorant idiot may buy it just to goof off with his kids when they get dropped off every other weekend. Start riding it around local trails, beat the crap out of the bike including himself and start to figure, hey this is fun. Go to the local bike shop and over the years buys 3 bikes, tons of other stuff like helments, shoes, tubes and so on, joins the local bike club, does trail work. That POC introduced him to mountain biking and his local shop owner his happy he did so. Sometimes the worst thing is the best thing. I do agree on the craftsmanship though.

    I just like the fact that the forks are on backwards. My dad bought a few bikes from walmart and the way he rides it killed them in less then a year but hey at least it got him out and on a bike.

    Yea... I had a good 5 minute laugh when I saw that myself.
    I give positive rep all around but then I get negative rep from all the clowns.

    My wife's cousin received a bike like that one day. Of course, people ask my advice after they do the damage. They asked me why the kid kept falling when turning on the bike. So, I said I will look at it when I come over. When I arrived at the scene, I take a look and notice the fork is on backwards and the brake levers pointing almost straight up. After I made an attempt to talk them into taking the bike back, I ended up tuning up the whole bike. Yes, I even rotated the fork to its correct position. The bike logo was Harley Davidson. The bad thing was it weighed as much as a harley.
    There is no charge for awesomeness......or attractiveness.

    Good rep does not wash out the bad, nor the bad the good.

    We got this in today...

    For some reason the guy couldn't keep his derailleurs in tune, and had actually thrown 2 derailleurs into the spokes, well after investigating for a few minutes we realized that the chainstays were not welded correctly, it's hard to tell by the photo but the one on the left is almost a 1/2" higher than the other... who knows, maybe it IS the way they designed it. This is a Mongoose FS btw...
