Default Re: Butterscootch Blunder - Don't buy Huffy

I have a Huffy Cranbrook, which I have had for 2 years, for me, is a good solid steel frame at a great price of $75 (what I paid for mine at Walmart, maybe was on sale that day). I am a large guy myself, at 6 ft 2, weighing around 275. As I said, have had this frame for two years, not even the slightest hint of a crack. I have upgraded the wheels to a heavy duty rear rim of unknown brand with a Shimano clone coaster hub and 12g spokes (cant remember the brand because I bought it almost 3 years ago, when I had my first bike, and the seller I purchased it from went out of business), and a Worksman front wheel with drum brake. I also upgraded the stock gooseneck to a Suntour stem off a vintage Schwinn road bike, and handlebars from an old mountain bike. The frame itself was worth what I paid for it. If I could afford to have the frame gusseted, I would do that, and I think it would last for an incredibly long time.
