I can't make out the image very well on my monitor, but the 26 inch hybrid bike might be a workable ride. I know Walmart has a 220 dollar Schwinn that appears to be an OK low-end bike.

Yup its the Varsity. I picked one up last week and I have been quite happy with the purchase.

You guys are missing the point... the fork is on backwards on the green bike. This is not this first time an ad like this has been put out to the masses and I doubt it will be the last...
