    Good thing. The sticker is required by the CPSCis the bike is not properly equipped for riding at night and/or is likely to be sold by a retail outlet whose employees are unlikely to familiarize the buyer with what local laws are.

    Why on earth would you be concerned about a safety warning on a bike sold exclusively at Walmart?

    First thing I thought when I saw the picture of the whole bike. You SHOULDN'T ride that bike how it's standardly equipped at night.

    Also it's probably a liability thing, sue-happy Americans and all.

    You got it all wrong; Walmart bicycles are made and sold by blood sucking vampires. Salvation will come from a carbon fiber stake brandished by a Serious Cyclist through the Merchant of Death's black heart. Ain't that right, Mr/Ms OP?

    This is another benefit of riding old classics -- no stupid warning labels.

    It's either a taxi service, in case you're still riding at sunset, or for Domino's pizza and you can get a ride back with the delivery guy.

    ^^^ Careful, that sticker may get your bike cut up in little pieces when some security guard starts looking for the explosive. It has happened before.

    You know all that money we spend on nuclear weapons and defense each year, trillions of dollars, correct? Instead -- just play with this -- if we spent that money feeding and clothing the poor of the world -- and it would pay for it many times over, not one human being excluded -- we can explore space together, both inner and outer, forever in peace. Thank you very much -- Bill Hicks
