We have all been to that store known as Walmart, Are their bikes really good for Bmx? they look like pro bikes, some of the bikes they sell at Walmart now have really small sprockets, and those 3 piece cranks, and the frames are straight tubes, just go look for yourself @ Walmart Bikes

Are those bikes real bmx bikes or what?

Actually, every pro bmx rider buys all their stuff from Walmart.

A decent bike is a decent bike, no matter where you buy it.

Actually, Wal-Mart is getting pretty damn legit.
The Mongoose Mode 900 is full chromo everything, sealed headset and a half link chain.
DK is also selling their shit there, the same as at actual bike shops.
Anyone who bashes a WalMart bike probably isn't even worth the bike they are riding.
If it has two wheels and rolls, ride that shit.

People act as if you can't get a shitty bike from Dan's or Albe's. Fact is, if you buy a complete, it's gunna have shitty parts on it no matter what!

the dk drew bezanson complete looks pretty decent if your just getting into riding

|

10/3/2013 9:23 PM

Since walmart Canada doesn't seem to have them has anyone seen the Mongoose 900 or the DK Dayton in person?
Do they actually seem decent for entry level riders, what kind of weight are they?
Their shipping weight on the walmart site is rediculous but maybe just packaging.....

Seem's like they are getting legit!!

They could be used a starter bike i guess.. looks like they are stepping it up a tad..

Regardless of quality, they're still put together by half retarded people with little to no mechanical skills.
If you do buy a bike there, first thing you should do is tear it down, check that all psrts are actually there, and rebuild it with proper greasing, making sure everything is tight. Two things Walmart does not do.

Dang you're right, maybe walmart will start selling quality bikes now haha,

Still, for $200 that's a pretty stacked bike.

The Mongoose site has the Legion for $499. That's their top of the line pro level bike. I would totally order one if I were looking for a bike.
