    Had to stop by Wally World on the way home from work today and swung by their bike department.

    They just reconfigured the bike department at our store and they were restocking it with merchandise.

    They had a cool looking Mongoose aluminum frame single speed bike for $149.00.

    You know the fixed gear market is mainstream now when you can buy a look a like at Wal-Mart. :lol:

    I lifted it up and it seemed pretty light. Pretty hard to beat for $149. Just need to lose the gay chainguard.

    Next was an OP brand aluminum cruiser that they wanted $109.00 for...again, pretty cheap for what seemed to be a decent looking cruiser.

    Then I noticed a Schwinn Cruiser that they had in a blue color....no price on this one, but probably just as cheap.

    Lastly was a new Cruiser tire by Bell that looked interesting...

    Those tires look interesting. I hate how they roll them up in a box, so hard to get seated properly. If anyone gets a pair I'd love to see them installed.

    I wish they would have made the stripe white and not beige, but it's a good start.

    $149 for that Mongoose? That's a pretty sweet deal. Were the rims 700 Deep V's or regular 26"? Gives me a real good idea for a single speed diamond frame from Monkey Wards that I have (bought it for $20, couldn't resist).
    On the tires, I've bought several like that from Wal Mart and all I did was leave them on a large flat surface for a few days in warm weather (ok, freaking hot Texas summer weather!) and I had no problems whatsoever. But YMMV. :p

    Re: NEW STUFF AT WAL-MART

    The wheels are 700c deep V wheels.

    Undoubtedly no name brand stuff since none of the components have any markings.

    Still a fun bike to goof around with though for $150! :D

    Kinda like the Black Friday Sting-Rays for the fixed gear community...ha ha! :lol:

    Re: NEW STUFF AT WAL-MART

    They have a Huffy Cranbrook coaster brake for about $88 or so that is not a bad bike.

    Cheap components, especially the pedals, but hard to beat price-wise for a starter or a build, especially since everything is new.

    I have one I found for $25 and figure the wheel set and white wall tires, or the frame itself are worth more than what I paid for it.
