    I saw a similar bike at Sports Authority for $99.

    It would actually be pretty nice if you upgraded the wheels, crankset, brakes, handlebars, seat, seatpost, fork and frame. Don't know why you guys hate on the big box bikes so much over here.
    Yeah I only carry cans cause I'm a weight weenie.

    At least it's got a threadless fork and aluminum brake levers compared to Walmart's Thruster Fixie with quill stem and plastic brake levers. Looks like aluminum wheels, which is also an upgrade from the Thruster.

    If I were in the market for these, the color combo of this one would win over the black/ketchup/mustard any day.

    I'm all for a cheap single speed but why ugly color schemes and dumb names. For the record this looks much better than the wally bike.

    I think its supposed to be 'ironic'. For the hipsters that aren't too cool for big box stores.

    They used to like Target, but that was only before you heard of it.

    So you'd keep the peddles then? I'll keep that in mind if someone gets me one...

    yeah those pedals do look pretty sweet. Metal is *way* too heavy for a high performance ride.

    A friend of mine just bought one of these at his local Target on clearance for $40.
