Today, I went to Walmart and Canadian Tire and found a couple of interesting bikes. Now, department store bikes may not be the best but here's what I saw. The Colombia Rambler at Walmart is available with either 26x2.35" tires or 24x2.35" tires. However, it's singlespeed. It looks like a cross between a cruiser and a BMX bike.
The CCM Inception at Canadian Tire looks somewhat like a hybrid with rigid forks but has 27x2.35" tires. Looking at it, it looks to me like it has clearance for the 2.5" Maxxis Hookworm tires. Looking at the size of the 2.35" tires, I thought maybe 2.5" or even 2.6" tires might be needed for the large potholes in the city I live in. Though I saw some bikes with 2.8" and 3.0" tires and find them very large. I'm tempted to buy the Inception to install 630mm wide bars on it with a 30mm rise and 90mm stem. That would probably make it a really cool bike.
