New "Beast like" geared bike offered up at "The Mart."

Yup, they got a new 26 inch (they also have a new 20 inch) phat tire bike up for sale at walmart. Looked pretty decent till the price went up from 225.00 to 350.00 basically over night! Its called The Dolomite. Not worth the 350.00 asking but hey, some of you might have the bones to throw at it. http://www.walmart.com/ip/29741123?w...382981&veh=sem

It was up on the walmart site for 225.00, it quickly went up to 350.00. More than a few people that bought it have had to change out components due to failure, that makes for a pretty high priced low end Fat Tire bike. I ended up upgrading my Beast but I only paid 200.00 for it.

They must have heard you, now the price is 249 online.

Edit: um, are you talking about this bike: Mongoose Dolomite men's bike. If not my bad.

Mongoose's bike dealer line intended for bike shops. Under $1000 for a dealer quality fat bike is impressive!

Yep, I'm considering getting one. They look pretty sweet and will be a nightmare for the big $ bike companies.
