That's probably because when you buy a bike (or anything else a Walmart) it's a crapshoot. Like many small towns in the US, Walmart is the biggest store in town. Not only is it the biggest bike store in town, but also the biggest grocery store, drug store, clothing store, etc. etc. The best thing about buying things at Walmart is their 90 day return policy. Take it home, go through it thoroughly, give it a spin and then decide if you want to keep it or not. When I buy something at Walmart I know that I'm not getting the best product out there. But the best I can hope for is a reasonably serviceable product that will serve the purpose and last a reasonably long time.

BTW - I suspect that the product reviews on are rigged. On three separate occasions I've tried to post a less than perfect review of my bike and on all three occasions my review was rejected.
