Default Re: new project bikes

I've been checking out some of Wal-Marts bikes also. Did you notice that they're using thicker spokes and the wheels on some of them are wider? Even wider than the 2.125s that we're used to. I've considered whether to purchase a Husky rear wheel for my $5 yard sale 24 incher or, just go and get a newer bike for $80 bucks! Tough call! I'm sure some will bust on Wally-world's bikes but, for what you pay, it's not bad! I"ve got over 1600 miles on my Cranbrook with very few problems. I just wish they had these same options when I bought mine less than a year ago.
