One cannot discount or bad mouth this bikes intended target or purpose for kids or smaller adults at it's price point. Make a few fit and/or brake adjustments and enjoy it.

Quote from noobie107 :
they want me to ride down a mountain with v-brakes?
As a fyi, V style brakes are all we had for many years and while not as good as a set of discs, they work. I've ridden up/down many a mountain trail here in our N. California Sierra-Nevada mountains and with a set of Kool Stop Salmon pads, V's work fine, but not disc fine.

Quote from chhaganbhujbad :
What does tuning up mean? I purchased cheap Husky bikes from KMART 5 years ago. I have barely used them about 6 times. Every time I want to use them in summer the tires go flat and I fill them up with air and obviously i need to replace the tubes inside them. The seats are hard to sit on and my ass is paining after I have been on the bike for about half an hour. I am not a regular cyclist. The same thing happened with my wife's bike.

I want to buy a good bike now or maybe fix this one. I have greased or lubricated the chain.

So what should I have been doing as to "tune it up"?
By tune up I mean to give everything a good look. Especially the brakes. Go through and check the tightness on every bolt. Air pressure in the tires. Keeping the chain lubed is always good. I use a spray on with a nice easy run through chain cleaner. But you shouldn't need to clean a new chain, just lube it.

If all your issues is the seat then just pick up a seat you like. A gel seat might be best if your not on your bike a lot. Otherwise I'd get a good hard one.

Tire pressure drops. This is something you just have to check every few weeks. I have a small hand one on my bike and a nice one in my garage. Tube replacement doesn't take long and then you can flush those bearings out. I volunteer at a bike co op so I'm probably over doing on the maintenance. Start out small and work your way up to the harder stuff.

Quote from enjay123 :
Yes they do. If you are planning to buy, opt for pickup and let them know you want it to be assembled when you pick it up. They usually take 2-3 days and give you a call when it's ready. Even if you get it delivered, you can still take it to local Walmart and get it assembled but pick up is convenient
Is that as a recent fact? The Walmart website shows a $49 fee for assembly (see attached screenshot).

Sounds like your wife would be happier with a cruiser bike such as this Mongoose [walmart.com]for only $89.

Grease in the bearings, everything tightened down to proper torque, wheels true with all spokes properly tensioned, brakes adjusted properly with good stopping power but levers engaging with the most tension in a position where you can get good leverage, derailleurs indexed. The pain from the saddle often resolves with riding more often, unless it's not fitting your sit bones. If you rode 6 times, you probably didn't give your body enough time to adjust. Make sure your saddle height is correct. You should have a slight bend to the knee when the pedal is all the way down. You should not be able to place your feet flat on the ground at a standstill.

I have a special place in my heart for bikes like this. I grew up with bikes like this. I put thousands of miles on them from midschool through high school. Daily rides to and from school, a 7 day a week paper route, general transportation, and being from a fairly poor family this was my main source of entertainment. If I had to go anywhere further than a block away, it was on a bike like this.

People give them bad names because they watch youtube and see videos of people taking them to Whislter Mountain and they fall apart on the trail after being beat on on a black diamond trail. They get bad names because people who think people buy these to mountain bike on. If you are on a trail hard enough to rattle this bike into pieces, you already know better than to think this is a real mountain bike. For people who like the look and will use this for daily transportation on roads and on dirt trails, this bike will probably last until it gets stolen or the person outgrows it and upgrades. Keep the moving parts greased and the bolts tight and its a good bike.

I bought this bike for my 8 year old boy. He like the color and he did not complain about "women's bike".

The delivery was quick.

Most of the bike came assembled. I had to attach the handle, front wheel and pedals.

The front wheel has disk brake and rear has normal pads that use the rim.

The pedals and the brake levels look flimsy.

The brakes are good, gear shifting is good too. I do not know what additional tuning is required. I need to watch more videos to learn the tuning part.

Does anyone know what lubricant is good for the chain? Does the brake and gear cables require grease?

Quote from Greenhill :
I once rode a Roadmaster road bike from Walmart for about 5,000 miles in 6 months. Besides the chain falling off and me having to tune everything for about two weeks until I got it just right, the bike was amazing.

I have never gotten Walmart to build the bike for me if you ship to store, nor did I ever hear of friends having luck. They literally just hand you a box.

Make sure the chain is the right length, check the break cords, or even if the brakes are on the correct part of the wheel.

Th bike I currently ride is a 10 speed I found on the side of the road. I ride it over hills and some of the worst roads in the USA. People who spend tons of money on bikes are out of their minds, they will just be stolen.
You are right. Bikes that are found on the side of garbage area are the best! They might be rusty, dirty, missing paddles, heavy as stones, but boy it can ride.

My experience on low end bike was not perfectly ideal, but it has gotten me to college and back home, job interviews, and grocery shopping. Would a nicer bike make the commute easier? Yes, is it worth it? Maybe not until I get my **** together!

It was in pretty good shape. Even the back brake worked for about 6 months. I think it was in the old garage because they were taking out a car from like 1920. The peddles are even metal, the only peddles that broke on me was a 10+ year old Walmart bike. The plastic broke off the metal bar and I can't get them off to replace them.

I have parts of 8 bikes in my grandma's garage, just change them out when needed.

I would never buy an expensive bike because it will be stolen. I stick it on buses, in sketchy areas where my doctors offices are. No one wants a 50 year old 10 speed bike probably built at Sears.

I have no idea if this Walmart bike is decent, but they do have decent bikes. Place it has one disco brake which is nice for the rain.

For those just looking for upgrade ideas, here'sa I'd highly recommend adding one of these Rinsten spring clones for another $20:
https://smile.amazon.com/ZTZ-Bicy...07F7TWLR6/

It takes a while adjusting them to find a sweet spot in between "pogo stick" and "does nothing" and you really have to tighten down the bolt to ensure that the saddle doesn't slip, but they do more for comfort on a hardtail than any other cheap upgrade I've come across.

I got two bikes assembled last year in North Jersey. You can call your local Walmart and ask if they assemble for free; I believe they do.
