    For some reason this bike reminds me of a lunch lady. It needs a Marlboro permanently dangling from the handlebars.
    The bums will always lose.

    Chainslack + no foot retention + incomplete pedals + no brakes (edit: coaster brake) + no bar end caps + winter = perfect candidate for another thread - http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...ist-of-the-day

    There is no need for any of that stuff. It is a winter beater with a coaster brake.

    it's not a winter beater. winter beaters are utilitarian. being a piece of **** with knobby tires does not automatically equal winter beater

    I guess you all never rode a crappy BMX bike with a coaster brake in the winter...
    If you cant ride this bike in the snow without fear of injury or death, you need to take a bus!

    This bike is the equivalent of running with scissors.
