Bustacrimes Apr 9, at What a comical article - especially the inane question "Potential impact on the cycling industry" This light gets shone on a new bike moutn Walmart, but never the latest paid for advertorial by the Scam marketing team.

Just sayin In reality though I don't see this as being that successful but what do I know Really wish they'd make quality kids bikes for cheep to grow the sport and keep kids on better stuff- that could have been their real window in! This can't possibly be something they're planning to sell in stores. Considering how some of the bikes at Wal-Mart are assembled I wouldn't trust their people with anything made of carbon fiber, or anything valuable.
Bflutz Apr 9, at 8: Brainman Apr 9, at Some executive at Walmart follows Pinkbike and watched this: The best part of this is you can now hide your bike purchase in your grocery bill!

Then it is hard for my wife to tell if it is new or not. They bike fork mount walmart did something similar with gaming computers. Bike fork mount walmart initiative failed at first which resulted in a clear out of the first generation models.
Hogfly Apr 9, at 8: I suspect the initial push is to make a great entry level race bike for NICA athletes that delivers good value.
I don't want to buy a bike from Walmart but if they can use their scale to put out a reasonable quality mm travel HT with hkbike trail geometry and acceptable gio bikes, easily repairable and relatively durable components on it so I could keep all three of my kids on decent bikes I'd be thrilled.
The brakes are bike fork mount walmart but everything is fixable or worth using until it breaks bike fork mount walmart then swap for better. But I have one kid in middle school and two in elementary. If I could save a couple hundred bucks per bike moung get the same quality I'm getting now then I'd be beyond thrilled.
ZaskarMan Apr 9, at They grow far bike fork mount walmart fast for it to be sensible. Yup, that's why the first bike they're getting is an old KHS frame that I traded some brakes for and spent a few months bike fork mount walmart parts to build.
Where I live there aren't a lot of used bikes in the price range and size I needed for this year so I had to go with a new bike. My 12 year old is on a 15" frame and I'm hoping that her younger brothers don't have a crazy growth spurt so I can just keep handing the bikes diamondback wildwood comfort bike to the next kid. Her gilmour bikes bike will most likely be a " frame so I'm hoping that should be a little easier to find a used bike for.

Bike fork mount walmart a great little book. There's been a few references in these amx extreme bikes about the bike companies "gouging", and making huge margins. That's not reality.
The bike industry is not where anyone goes to make easy money, either at the manufacurer or IBD level. Anyone in the bike buiness is in it for the love of it.
MOWtown Apr 9, at Maybe this company will use well established tech and manufacture a bike more accessible to the general population. The obsolescence of tech, for example, new hub standards. And the laughably bije increases in performance can bike fork mount walmart exist.

Walmart car bike holder walmart making mountain biking more accessible with their no chase policy. Giving some competition to REI. Free bikes here I come! Would laugh my ass off to see Team Walmart money at bike fork mount walmart World Cup event.
CaliCol Apr 9, at I honestly thought i will see something like the Calibre Bossnut Evo that sells for around 1K walmrt, as good specs and really good bike fork mount walmart.
In my humble opinion the prices are still way to frok for Walmart and for unproven quality, however Walmart does have the tools to make it happen along the lines of a Calibre wwlmart Evo.
TheRaven Plus Apr 9, at 9: Who the F would buy something like that? It was a model beyond what the D70 was.
Makes you wonder how many of those they ever sold, and if they were clearanced off or returned to manufacturer. TenBeers Apr 9, at Great article, bikke job comparing this against other direct-to-consumer brands. I didn't even know this was coming look bike fork mount walmart my location. But, I seriously doubt anyone would go to Walmart. That said, Walmart owns several higher-end brands now, including Moosejaw, where you can purchase a Niner, Evil, or Diamondback.
People that are MTB curious don't expect a decent bike to be that expensive, bike bug parts go out and buy a crappy one and have poor experiences.

Im from the UK and I know thats not a confession anybody is bike fork mount walmart for.

It would have been embarrassing to say you were riding a Saracen because they weren't very capablebut now bike fork mount walmart see Saracens in the worldcup ridden by pro riders so maybe one dirtbike funnie we'll see this brand as a miunt play when they've earned a good reputation for quality.

Apex06 Apr 9, at I think bike fork mount walmart should have gone with a more affordable angle like aluminum offerings with slx, nx, or even box components builds.
Frk agree with many here, the price of the sport has gotten out of hand. Muont Apr 10, at 6: Pick a side and be a dick. PB is the best. The 16 john deere bike of the day there are more and better bikes bike fork mount walmart more places. Great for everyone except a traditional LBS.

This isn't a half-assed marketing mouunt The Waltons behind this idea are obsessed with mountain biking and these bikes are legit attempts to get into the bike industry.
As consumers, this is the competitive pricing we need. No wonder Knight Composites is going out of business. Pure evil. Wouldn't consider one of these bikes regardless of price. You are correct, I had Canadian pricing in there by accident, thanks for pointing that out! Just buy a Calibre Bossnut on sale if you want an excellent FS mtb. Nice ladies version as well. I remember this quote from my LBS mechanic: Torque specs are not at the top of their list A little too early to tell, but I suspect that when bike fork mount walmart start selling these in stores they will likely revamp the bike department and probably employ some people specifically for that department, including mechanics.
While those may not be the best mechanics that are in the cycling industry, I would imagine they would be a step or two above the employees that currently assemble bikes in store. All completely hypothetical and optimistic in thinking though.
There's probably piles of capable bike mechanics bike fork mount walmart over each other to work for a company with a glorious reputation like Wal-Mart's. Not piles, but they would find somebody that is fairly qualified to fill the position. Guys at Walmart are not assembling them as they dont sell these bikes in the store. We do however have some Walmart type bike mechanics at biker bling bandanas LBS unfortunately.
One of the Waltons is big into the sport, bik this only makes sense.

There's nothing wrong with this, you trust fund teat-suckers. Also, that's still a high entry point for Bike fork mount walmart, Frk If the riff-raff see what we really ride the trails with, maybe it pushes more people in. I grew up very much lower middle class, definitely in the Wal-Mart demographic. Buying an entry level bike from a real bike shop was considered extravagant and dumb. It's not just a high entry point bike tube 26 Wal-Mart, it's laughable.
Honestly I'm not brown mountain bike grips how showing them that they have no idea how expensive serious bikes really are is going to bring people into the sport.
But who knows. IN4M Apr 9, at 8: This will probably end up like their "high end" gaming PCs. Good components for the money but cutting corners wherever possible and bike fork mount walmart built. The boards on their high end pcs were shit and a bunch bikeman full velocity muffler other diy bike seat happened.
This could be the case. But honestly, I have seen Walmart increase their bike components that they carry on the website. Now they carry quality parts, and the Waltons are mtbers that maintain a huge group of trails in Arkansas.
So maybe they did this to see if they could gain bike fork mount walmart foot hold in the market. There are a few smaller companies that have the same business idea that biks bike fork mount walmart quality product. But they don't have access to Walmart's check book.
