Ok I've read the X-mart sucks posts but heres the dilema. My family spents a week to a week and a half a year in Northern MN every summer at a Cabin that has been in her famlily for generations. There are a lot of gorgous trails up there but by the time the car is loaded with kids, pets, and all the stuff that goes with them for a vacation taking our bicycles (which are LBS bikes) is just not going to happen. So I was wondering are any of the $100 to $150 bikes at X-mart ok for a bicycle that can be left there? they would probaly be ridden 2 or 3 times a year on the trails while we are up there then hung up in the garage till the next year so a $400 bike is out of the question esp since they would be left through the winter with no one there.
I've seen the single speed cruisers for around $100 that may fit the bill since theres no gears to break or maintain.
Just interested in your thoughts and input. Thanks.
