I buy all my bikes from Department stores. My road bike is a 99 dollar Toys R Us bicycle. I haven't had a problem with it yet except I don't like the feel of road bikes at all. I like the speed of it with the 700x25 tires though. Solid center pull brakes. Only bad thing, if you want to call it that, the gear shifters are at the handlebars aka 1970s style and it weighs a ton compared to a 1,000 dollar road bike.

My regular and favorite bike is a Schwinn from Walmart. One of them took me from South Carolina to Texas two years ago without any problems minus flats.

I would stay away from the Roadmaster series from Walmart unless you upgrade the tires and brakes.

Department store bikes are okay BUT BUT BUT BUT always check the assembly yourself to be sure.
