    Good job! Which bike should I buy out of these

    Getting them from wally mart dot com. Heck shipping is only $2.97.

    Please keep in mind that I'm not a serious biker. Just using it to mostly ride around the neighborhood for an hour or 2 exercise. No trailing or any thing like that. Maybe a few beach trip and mountain riding (road)... No fancy jumps or tricks.

    Thanks.

    Option 1 $129
    26'' Mongoose XR-75 Dual Suspension Men's Bike



    Option 2 $99
    NEXT Avalon 26" Men's Cruiser Bike


    Option 3 $114
    26" Hyper Jolt Men's Mountain Bike


    Option 4 $96
    NEXT Power X Men's 26" Mountain Bike


    I like the way Option 1 looks. What do you guys think out of these 4 picks.

    I like option 3, it's got a chainguard on it. You lose the disk brake option though. Good luck.

    I like option 2 as it is not full suspension. Full suspension is an absolute disaster at that pricepoint - and also for what you intend to do.

    Even though you arent doing serious trail riding, if you arent opposed to buying used, you could spend $200 on craigslist and get a bike 10 times better than those.

    Yeah, I"m thinking option 2.

    I have an old Diamondback DB Sorrento with auto shifting that I'm using right now. It's starting to rust though.

    Just go to your local bike shop, and fork over ~$250 for a new hybrid (cross between road and mountain bike). It'll last more than a week, and won't result in a visit to the hospital due to frame failure.

    #2 the curved toptube is nice for taint clearance.

    tho, you may find yourself always turning left...

    Which is kinda cool because I'm into NASCAR.

    It's between 1 and 2 at the moment. #2 has some good reviews. I think it's fine for what I'm going to use it for.

    Thanks.

    NO, BAD!!

    If all you're doing is commuting and you want a bike that won't hurt your soul to be stolen then the hybrid is the ONLY one to consider. If you want to ride safely then save up about $250-$300 and buy an entry level bike shop bike (not Dick's or Academy or whatever mass market sporting goods store is in your area, a dedicated bike shop). I don't know your situation or if you have the money, but anything worth doing is worth doing right. Cheap bikes are literally designed to be replaced every year (Christmas) and when I was working in bike shops I saw stuff on them when they are new that would curdle my blood and spill plenty of yours. If you don't believe me Google 'walmart bike lawsuit.' Realize that the manufacturers, assemblers and sellers of these kinds of bikes would rather apply 'the formula' (Fight Club) than worry about the welfare of you and your bones and your organs.

    And I think it would be better if you walked/ran for excercise. You'll get wayyyy more excercise. And just save up your money. Don't let it burn a hole in your pocket

    You think walking is better exercise than riding a bike? You must not ride fast enough.

    If you walk fast and do distances, it is. I ride with an average of 18mph, and I've kept that average on a couple of my 55 mile rides. If you get one of those bikes, once you get going fast enough, either it'll break or its brakes wont stop you.

    Running a mile on foot, feels like riding 5 miles on a bike. If you actually RUN.

    EXACTLY!!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't like people who just ride for excecise....they ride too slow, don't know any traffic laws, and have no balance so they are incredibly hard to pass.

    '09 Diamondback Insight 1 - Hybrid



    They only have small but since you didn't give your size... Don't know what frame size to look for.

    I use biking as my cardio and jumping all over the place in the mountains. If you keep over 6-7 mph you will get your exercise in a lot quicker than running. Since you don't wanna jump all over the place a hybrid bike is a good choice for your road exercise. Remember you're not gonna get the best components for the price range you want but it's a good started and should do well till you gather more money later on for a better model if you get into it.

    So by the looks of things, you want a full suspension. The cheapest entry level FS bike will be a Motobecane 400DS Other then us showing you decent bikes you might as well look through your local craigs list.

    He doesn't want full suspension, it's just the easiest way to seel a piece of crap bike. It's working. Prettymuch all the crap at Walmart is FS, so people will buy them.

    Get a Trek 3500, do yourself a favor

    It appeals to people, so they can sell it sooo much easier. If that bike was in walmart next to a Schwinn sidewinder (i think that's the hunk of cast iron they sell), people would choose the FS bike. They think that it's a better bike, though it's anything but that.

    Ya get me?

    LOL, I'm starting to think some of you guys are (LBS) owners and are pissed that WalMart has taking a huge chunk of your customers.

    As a newbie, I think wally bikes are marketed to average Americans. Kinda like the Toyota Camry's..

    Some people will spend 40K + on a car, and some will just get a Toyota Camry. Takes them to point A to point B with no problems.

    I'll visit a LBS after work tomorrow and see what the fuss is all about.

    As a newbie, I think wally bikes are marketed to average Americans. Kinda like the Toyota Camry's.. They are marketed to uneducated Americans. So, yes, I guess you could say average.

    Some people will spend 40K + on a car, and some will just get a Toyota Camry. Takes them to point A to point B with no problems. This bike won't take you from A to B without problems. Especially if it starts pedaling itself, and it's brakes suddenly fail.

    I'll visit a LBS after work tomorrow and see what the fuss is all about. You will most likely be sticker shocked, because you actually get good components on a good frame (imagine that). Its worth the price. If you want a good bike for "excercise", ask the LBS peeps about Hybrids.

    Do yourself a favor and don't buy from walmart.

    Listen to these guys. Walk away from the Walmart bikes & full suspension. You have nothing to gain riding on the road from suspension. This is why you don't see it on fitness / road bikes. It just adds weight and wastes energy. If I were you, go used for a brand name hard tail or hybrid. 5 years from now when you are still riding it, or have refined your tastes you will realize the used bike you bought got you into riding as apposed to the $100 you wasted causing you aggravation & walking away from riding.

    vbx, lots of people here are trying to help you on here but if you don't want to be helped then go get the Clostomizer at Wally Land. If you haven't already Google 'walmart bike lawsuit' and scan through the pages and pages of serious injuries. It wouldn't be the first time I wasted my breath.

    all of my bikes have been in accidents...they're mountain bikes...it happens. my fat ass riding them the majority of the times without accidents is worse abuse than any falls they've suffered. that's a killer deal on a bike that isn't going to just fall apart on you.

    I realize it's posted in the "Department store bike" thread, but I'm surprised no one has posted it here. Department store bikes, apart from being cheap crap, are not assembled by professionals. They are put together by the idiots who work at your local Walmart store. If you check around you'll read the horror stories of forks installed backwards and people being unable to shift past third gear because the derailleur is configured improperly. If you're lucky the brake cables will be taught so you won't roll uncontrollably into oncoming traffic.

    I'm not going to lie.....I bought my bike at Sports Authority. BUT---it IS an Iron Horse hardtail, like the Warrior or Maverick of 2007. I did my research, and I got a good deal. It is okay to buy a bike a Sports Authority or Dicks if you know what you're buying and know how to work on bikes. It wasn't perfect, it had a scratch on the downtube. I got it for $270, original price was $650.

    If you know your stuff, it isn't always bad to buy a bike at a sports store, you just HAVE to know what you're getting in to. The Diamondback Topanga is just a Response (I think....I know that the Topanga is identical to DB Hardtails made by the company). Some bikes though are just labeled as a Mongoose or Schwinn though. The moral of the story is just do TONS of research, and you can't make a bad decision

    Just read up on the lawsuit.

    Problem: Front tire coming off.

    Alleged defect: The quick release is defective.

    Walmart/Dynacraft defense: "Both Wal-Mart and Dynacraft deny that the bikes are defective and blame the accidents on parents and kids tampering with the quick-release levers."

    Outcome of the lawsuit: "a jury found Wal-mart not guilty of selling defective bicycles."

    Reference:
    Leider,Polly "Parents Say Wal-Mart Sold Faulty Bikes" (26 Jan 2006) Retrieved on 06/21/2010 from http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/...n1241890.shtml

    In this case, I tend to believe Wal-Mart/Dynacraft.

    I work at a walmart (sorry guys, not TRYING to...) and in the back there'll be a bike or two randomly with scary notes on them like "pedal fell off, please repair".

    They're literally assembled by a cranky old man who watched a video on how to tighten bolts.

    Some people will spend 40K + on a car, and some will just get a Toyota Camry. Takes them to point A to point B with no problems.

    I'll visit a LBS after work tomorrow and see what the fuss is all about.

    Toyota Camrys and Walgooses have one thing in common: at some point in the future, you won't be able to stop the damn thing.
