Walmart 29er : $199

 Walmart 29er: $199

I was walking through Walmart tonight and I spotted a 29er for $199.
It was bright orange and some off brand I don't remmber and had scary looking disk brakes, 1980 shimano trigger shifters and bobo brand front shocks. It was a 60 pound tank of a bike. The one on the Walmart website is a full rigid Mongoose with different specs but no doubt the same poor build quality. If Walmart is carrying 29ers I guess it's no longer a fad to roll on big wheels?

Check out the review on the link: Quote " This bike is awesome! The 29" wheels roll over anything and everything! I was even able to roll over a 3" curb in my front yard with no problem! I think by riding this bike chicks will really start to dig me!

Thanks Mom! "

Wow. Mullet brakes. That's a sign of quality.
