I've been riding a Huffy Tempas for a few months since I gave my Trek 820 away and it seems to be doing fine. I mean, I'm riding it in a relatively smooth paved bike path for several months and the Tempas seems fine. I bought it for 40 bucks at Toys R Us so it was really cheap because I needed a bike to take me to campus till I ship overseas in March. I'm inept at biking so I haven't even cleaned the chain or whatever, I've just been riding it for several months and it seems fine. It also dosen't seem to go much slower than my Trek, it seems like the quality of the 2 bikes are about the same. I dunno, are they the same? I paid 300 bucks for the Trek and it seems like I wasted my cash. Is there a difference? I assembled the Huffy myself and I'm really no expert and it seems fine.
