Check this out, Guys. This is a pic of a Huffy Mountain bike rim.
This bike was donated to me so I could fix it up and then give it to a local low-income-area school.
At first, I thought the rim was broken. On closer inspection (yes, with the tire off), I noticed that the rim was actually MADE this way. The seams of the rim don't even come close to matching up.
Great Zounds, what poor workmanship. I have seen some bad quality in my day, but this is really bad.
Of course, this is a newer "Made in China" Huffy mountain bike. I am guessing it is from about year 2000.
Here you go, bike shop owners; my free gift to you. Print this pic and show it to buyers that ask what the difference is between a quality bike and an X-Mart Huffy.
Has anybody else seen this or seen similar examples of poor workmanship?
