Hello, all. I'm kinda new to this forum...
Anyways, I stumbled apon an a really long thread with the subject heading "What is wrong with Wal Mart bikes?" and in this thread, Inoplanetyanin stated that some people around the world didn't even have enough money to buy cheap bikes from WalMart that most people regard as crap.
So then I wondered, what kind of bikes do they ride in China? There's over a billion people there, most of them who ride. And the country's almost third world, too. So how do they get their bikes?
Do Huffy or Roadmaster make cheap bikes there?
Do they hand down their bikes from generation to generation?
Do they build their own bikes?
Do LBS's there make bikes themselves?
Do they have people that make bikes as a trade?
Do they spend most of their life's savings on nice, imported bikes like Trek?
Anyone know or have any ideas? Are there any big-name Chinese bicycle manufacturers in China?
Please note that I'm not talking about the big cities like Shanghai or Hong Kong.
Thanks a lot.
