    Oh yeah, I'm always pulling them out, some Walmarts have the upper racks that pull out and down, very cool.

    On that single speed, look at the rear hub, it's probably a flip flop and can be made fixed with a cog and lock ring. When I bought my Mongoose Cachet it said nothing about the fact that it had a flip flop hub, but a quick visual inspection showed that it was indeed and already had a lock ring installed, I just threw a $6 track cog on it.

    There were three of the Mongoose bikes there, all with bars assembled the exact same way. The rear hub was threaded on the non-drive side, but did not have a second cog like the Thruster Fixie does. It may be the case that you can swap the cog from side to side? Will investigate further.

    When I came over to look at the bikes, a guy and his wife had just finished riding a bike up and down the aisle and were trying to cram it back into the (closed) rack. They seemed surprised when I pulled out another rack to examine a bike.

    I have 2 sitting in my shed right now on the floor :D They're good to park your bikes upright without a kickstand :wink:

    Couple pics I've been meaning to post:

    One local Wal-Mart was blowing out the sidehacks they had in stock for $150. Hard to tell what they are in the pic with all the grills in the background. They're cool looking, but I have no idea what I'd do with one. Maybe if they get down to $75.

    There is now a multi-speed version of the Onyx bike for $179. The only one I have seen so far looks like bare aluminum.

    If they came out with an Onyx 3 or 5 speed with an internal geared hub with coaster, then I'd be interested.

    The Nexus 7 coaster is a nice compliment to this bike. All in weight of under 30lb for a bike rolling on 28x2.35 big apples does make a great ride.

    I like the 29", but do not like the "V" style rims.

    The deep V rims need to go..It would just cost way too much to make that bike like I'd want...

    It's bad enough when they put the spokes on backwards, but now they are putting handlebars upside down??? Silly Walmart guys!

    Those are triple wall deep V 48 spoke rims. I have a hunch the rat rodders of the next century will be thinking of them like S7... A little heavy but with a durability that his hard to imagine in our time.

    This is my OP cruiser that my 3 daughters got me for my birthday last year... I know the OP is not the greatest of bikes, but the mere fact that my girls got it for me dictates that it will be a keeper :)

    That OP is priceless, plus it has some nice lines and a trip-tree.
