well sometime between 7pm on august 12 and 7am august 13 my bike was stolen from the front of my house
i raced to target to get a schwinn trailways bike (big mistake). i then got a flat with it and had to walk 2.5 miles home,only to discover that the inner tube is an oddball extra long schrader valve type never before seen. i went to the two bike stores in my area, nada, don't carry such tubes.
later thursday my friend gives me a fuji 27 inch 12-speed that is laying in his garage and i pump up the tires and whalla, a new bike for me.
i promptly return the target bike for a refund.
moral of the story, stay away from big box store bikes.
