    Thus it begins

    Hear Ye', Hear Ye'...I am about to possible make the worst purchase of my humanly life...But I secretly am in love with it. The bike know as the Genesis Track One, avalible at our friendly neighborhood Wal-Mart, will soon be in my possesion. Why may you ask?.....simple..... To answer the question that seems to have been lingering above all of our heads...Is this bike worth it? Well my friends, this shall soon be determined. Im going to purchase this bike within the next week, and a "review" if you can call it that, will be posted (don't hold your breath).

    All in good time folks.

    Here it is...

    150.00 for a fixed gear / ss road bike... with a steel frame.

    Would love to see one and for $150.00 would buy one too.

    Every time you make a purchase from Walmart, you put a small mom & pop store out of business. Sure you may save a few pennies, but at what price?

    I quite aware. But beleive me, i worship the small business owners. There are a few bike shops around where i am, and i more or less live there. To tell the truth, im probebly going to end up buying parts fot this walmart bike at those same shops (if needed). haha. So no worries.

    Seriously... I want to see what they could build for $150.00 and am normally in the practice of never buying anything that wasn't made locally or recycled / re-used.

    After I tested it to death and if it proved to be safe and rideable I'd donate it to a bike charity.

    you guys are aware that you're feeding the monster that is tearing our local communities limb from limb?

    you're actively contributing to the shredding of the fabric of community.

    /soapbox

    if i had the money for a really, really good lawyer i'd pipebomb every one of these genesis bikes.

    In the beginning, there was nothing. Then, a big flash. Then, a hipster made to regret their selfish decisions.

    I will proudly say that I haven't purchased from, or entered a wal-mart in the last 2 years.

    I just looked at some details. Shipping weight is 42 lbs?

    http://www.walmart.com/ip/Genesis-70...#ProductDetail

    Oh, and check out the first review. The bike gets a 5/5 after you put about $400 into it. Sweet! Now I wanna Genesis too! The stickers do sound pretty sick. "Flip Flop Hub" is the new "4x4"
