So did Schwinn. These bikes are not those (they aren't notably "decent").

Well, they can lock away. And keep things cordial and echo-chambery and filter-bubbly and BORING. Yawn.
The method behind the madness may be elucidated here:

You didn't. And you may notice I never said you did. I said KHS had some decent bikes.

Are you really going to argue about EVERYTHING??

Seriously, do people in NJ not know how to have adult conversations?

You are still whining about something. Grow up.

This silly junk is you being argumentative (it certainly didn't add any value). You didn't need to say it but you had to be argumentative.

And then you whined about me be argumentative when I said the same sort of thing afterwards (this is bizarre).

I have no idea why you mentioned that KHS had a "decent bike or two".

It certainly doesn't mean that KHS wasn't more of a bargain brand (sort of like Schwinn).

What the OP bought was the typical bargain-ish bike of either brand.

Take it outside, please.
