Default Re: Wally World Huffy Vs Schwinn

If you can find a old "real" bike at a garage sale or off Crags List you are in for a lot less grief. The quality for a "wally world" bike or a Kmart special along with the added vibration and power of even these little motors seem to add up to a disaster waiting to happen.

I spent more money on my rear wheel than you might for a Cheep bike. Granted you can wind up spending more than you need to for the basic bike but there has to be a limit. The less that you have to worry about from the start of the project the better.
