Default Re: debunking myths about walmart bikes

The stock 28" tires on my Mongoose Paver blew off the rims when I put air in them. The replacement tires sent to me by Mongoose blew off the rims when inflated. The Duro Easy Ride tires I put on to replace the Mongoose tires are still on the rims. The frame was contorted in a effort to shorten the frame so my toes hit the front wheel when I turn. The seat post is nearly upright, a bad ergonomic position. My knees hurt when I pedal. When motoring top speed is limited by headshake(the front end vibrates). This starts to happen above 25 mph.

Other than that it's...ok.
