Do you want fries with that bike?

McDonald's to Sell McKids-Branded Skateboards, Bikes - http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,159799,00.html

How long do you think before some Yoohoo asks, "Does Mc Donald's make a good bike? Should I get one?"

The fry dude can barely take the fries out on time. Could you imagine how quickly that bike would fall apart?!

... and we all thought it couldn't get worse than "Larry in Hardware" assembling your bike. Now we have "Chris on Burger Assembly" now "Chris on Burger/Bike Assembly".

P.S. - I used the name Chris because my cousin Chris used to work at McDonald's in high school on the burger assembly line. He always came home (he was raised by my parents) smelling like French fries. Now I guess he would come home smelling like WD-40 and French fries.

The bikes are sold at Target and Amazon.

Mcdonald's is simply branding the bike e.g. a decal. It's not like your spokes are going to be made out of straws.

What's in the bottom bracket? M&M's for bearings and vanilla soft serve for grease?

I love this picture. Thanks for sharing. I set it as the background on my phone. I am going to tell everyone I am trying to be a XC race legend like my hero Ronald McDonald.

On a singlespeed! With only a driveside crank! And no front brake. Does that thing use a coaster brake? Ronald is hardcore! Although just from that picture alone, I'd be worried about getting a McDonald's branded bike. I can see it now. You pull the thing out of the box and wonder what idiot designed a bike without a chainstay.

The bikes are most likely going to be hunks of crap but atleast they're (announced) intentions are good. Obviously they want to make money and make themselves look good, but the excercise idea isnt bad.

No amount of exercise can make amends for a super sized double whopper meal with a chocolate milkshake and four extra packets of salt on the fries

Because it's only a matter of time, I shall go first:
There is nothing wrong with those bikes. Why I used to have a Huffy that I rode across the Sahara desert and I never had 1 problem with it. My kids all have McKids bikes and are very happy, and we plant flower in the frames after they break, so they are educational, as well. You people must be a bunch of elitist rich-boys with your high-dollar $300 bikes.
