    I've already seen them for sale on Craigslist for 2 and 3 times as much as msrp, not even debadged or repainted.

    Correct me if im wrong but isnt there such a thing called upgrading?
    If a frame is decent and the componants are cheap such as the case
    with a few LBS bikes then why is it such a bad deal or just crap in general?

    Doesnt a $500.00 LBS hardtail come with cheap Sr suntour "square taper cranks
    and cheap suntour XCT shocks and bottom of the line derailleurs and cheap mechanical
    brakes?..come on guys; i so agree with the people assembling them should be given a basic
    bike assembly course; but look at the big picture here..Its upgradeable and a candidate for
    a re assembly by someone capable. The bikes are of better quality than one from previous
    years and its getting even better..Not all models are getting the better features or upgrades
    but some are..There are many models with very well designed frames and are just as capable
    as any other bike of its type..I wont say that this is something you want for a professional rider
    who has alot of strength and not afraid to go off drop offs or huge jumps but they are capable of
    riding a basic trails or commute throught the streets as any other bike..As far as dual suspension models are concerned i agree many of them are garbage as with some of the hardtails but again some are very capable fun trail bikes that with some mods you would be very surprised how they perform and hold up compared to or the same as a LBS brand bike..The Genesis brand V2100 and the Saber believe it or not have a remarkable frame and geometry for a dual suspension bike and are very worthy of upgrades..Some 29er models like the Mongoose XR pro are equipped as good if not better than some LBS bikes are for the same money..If you are on a very low budget and just want to have fun and maybe upgrade in time instead of having to dish out alot of money at one time then you cant go wrong on some of the models offered.

    not sure what the big deal is. clearly they have their own group for their bike of choice.

    if they post here regarding a big box bike, then don't expect the same excitement they are getting from that forum site.

    To the original poster...If you like that bike and it will get you riding then by all means its a good bike..I wont tell you it has the best parts on it or its a professional grade bike of its type but it can be a very good bike..If you cant work on it i would suggest if you did buy it that you take it to a local bike shop and let them do a once over on it for safety..In reality those who assemble them for the department stores do not have a very good reputation at assembling them correctly and in some cases to the degree of maybe someone getting hurt..Its sad but its true...But if its assembled and tuned properly i can assure you its just as good as a bike as any costing 3 times the amount...you can upgrade as you go along or see fit and have fun with the bike...you dont need pro componants to enjoy your bike...If you like the bike then go for it.

    I looked up the bike and a few upgrades i would recommend should you decide to get it is to upgrade to aluminum pedals, an aluminum seat post, handle bars and a stem..Im sure they are very heavy steel parts.. a lighter bike requires less effort to use as well...the rest just ride till it needs replacing. Im willing to bet a drop of over 1 lb replacing the parts i mentioned..It says it weighs 30lbs..The frame is steel however..maybe see if you can find one with an aluminum frame..if not an aluminum fork would help drop alot of weight.

    inb4 this turns into another sharky thread.


    But, seriously sharky, can you please leave the SS forum be? There's lots more people in other forums to troll. The SS forum is generally pretty peaceful.

    until you get banned for epic trolling.

    you're clearly and by your own admission here for one reason and one reason only... to stir up trouble. this is something you've admitted on this board and the bbb forum. you've even bragged on bbb about all the chaos you're stirring up on here.

    the banhammer can't drop on you soon enough.

    Agreed. Although I enjoyed the trolling in General. Can they ban from everything but general?

    Impressive, you are like a big-box Batman

    Seriously though, you tell the guy that the the Target fixie is a perfectly acceptable bike and subsequently that he should upgrade damn near every part including the frame because they are too heavy? How is this a good use of money or time?

    I am working on a signal to alert sharky when an innocent BBB is in trouble. It's going to be a spotlight that projects onto the ominous cloud- covered sky the outline of a bicycle with the fork installed backwards.

    Magna Target fixie...

    Is bbb that department store bike cult? Wasn't it started by a dude who's vag was hurting because y'all tried to tell him the mongoose 29er was not a good buy and that he should use that money for a decent used bike?

    Or maybe it was the jeep troll
