UHACKER Adjustable Bike Kickstand Aluminum Rear Side Bicycle Stand for Bike 22"-27"

This one works for me, install it toward the rear of the bike, or the pedals will touch it.

its fine for a 170 dollar bike. take away should be microshift group, non tapered headset and doesn't look like theres a disc brake mount in the rear.



you are too picky...its 170 dollar for a complete bike, it's basically the price of a slx cassette and slx rear derailleur



you can see in this assembly video the saddle has a single bolt adjustment for tilt and to slide forward and backwards

https://youtu.be/jZl5VEKiomY?t=187 (3:06)

fyi - the saddle cannot physically be welded to the stem. the stem holds the handlebar and fork upper to the bike.
I disagree. The target buyer for this bike will not be using it for actual mountain biking or any other type of aggressive riding. The target buyer will be a casual rider who will ride around the neighborhood and maybe the occasional dirt trail. This bike will be perfectly fine for that use and will not go out of adjustment every few rides for that use.
That does not fit reality. I have had nothing but cheap bikes and some I had for ten plus years. I even used cheap ten speeds for off trail use and the bikes always took a beating but kept on ticking. Brakes and derailers are not rocket science and usually a squirt of WD40 and simple adjustments will keep things working. We figured that stuff out at about the age of eight. As a kid I had a banana bike with two extra sets of forks cut off other salvaged bikes and beaten on with hammer. It looked really cool with one set curving one way and another the other and the bike rode and did what I needed it to do. It could even jump ramps in that configuration. What better way to learn about bikes than fixing, experimenting and adjusting a cheap one. You advise newcomers to poke around and mess up a $500 derailers or brake system? You advise those you assume can't even make simple adjustments to buy a higher end bike that will be a constant cost to them? You advise high end gear to somebody that may not really take to bike riding and as you say the bike may end up siting in a garage or storage, better that with a $175 bike than a $2000 one. A newcomer to bikes would be more likely to try to fix something on cheap bike on their own versus one that could cost big money for components and service. I have no idea why anyone that just wanted to ride once in a while would want a piece of gear, they are afraid to fix or afford to have fixed.

As the below guy says, not very one is looking to be a competition equipment, some people don't want to be a cyclist they just want to ride a bike once in a while and they absolutely do not need high end components. That would be like buying a major league bat for a kid that hasn't swung one yet and is signing up for little league. That is true for just about everything, someone will tell you can't fish with $10 pole you need a $100 one, you can't play baseball with a $10 glove you need a $100 one. It is not true at all and some people that use the most basic of equipment enjoy what they are doing more than the connoisseur that worries he does not have the right brake system. Some people just want to fish or hike or bike without their life revolving around it. Advising them to spend more or higher end gear takes money that they could apply to some other pastime that they might like.

There is some weird cultural thing where people can't just do something that brings enjoyment they have to completely dive into a world and activity like it is the only thing in life. They become consumed by something as simple as a bike and have to enter the world of being a cyclist. Special clothes and shoes will be bought and life will revolve around a bike or some other what used to be a pastime. Ther will be arguments over brakes and sneers and jeers at those that don't use the proper equipment. We can thee the same weird snobbery with just about everything. Meanwhile the normal people are out enjoying the $175 bikes and $10 fishing poles.

Actually I think this price a bit high, the set of bikes that we are using now are Schwinn's that I got from a SD deal for I think $79. The tires go flat sometimes between rides but I just pump them up and might get round to getting a new tubes someday but when we use them they perform fine and hold for rides. They are probably pushing six years old now and I have never had to adjust anything after the initial setup and just the slow leak tire thing has been the only problem. It is not much of one when considering the price. I could have to but maybe a thousand tubes and might get to cost some people pay for a bike that they seldom use

^^ This is spot on!!

Skip this - cheap components that will require constant fiddling, and very odd frame.

Got one for the same size less than a week ago. But it is large -- the size didn't show up in my previous order. After assembling, my 12-year boy feel insecure riding on it.


Can I return an assembled one to Walmart and re-order a small-sized one?

Someone on YT mentioned that the seat (very uncomfortable) is welded to the stem and cannot be changed.

Does anyone have this bike and can confirm or deny? If they have a one piece seat/stem then I would avoid. The rest of the bike will be junk too.

I don't know, but my guess is yes.

Probably nicer than a Huffy. Good enough for a basic bike if that's your budget.

I mean it's your $170 to throw away. It's fine if you ride a couple of times per year, but this will go out of adjustment after every few rides, especially when it comes to the brakes and derailleurs. The target buyer for this won't have skills or want to learn about how to adjust it themselves, nor be willing to pay a bakeshop to do it. For most this will basically end up rotting on the bikerack outside their apartment ;-)

Microshift isn't as garbage as you might think. Assuming it is built correctly....i cant imagine microshift or even cheaper group going out of adjustment. Plus there is so much tolerance in a 7sp i can probably shift it perfectly with a unindexed down tube shifter. As for brakes, its a v-brake, keep the pivot lubed and it will work, thats why cheap bikes use them.

this bike is built to a price point, and as you said it's for a target buyer that bought this to ride around a paved park with their 6yr old kids not go do a ews stage.

It's not very hard to disassemble but packing it again might be a pain

I can confirm that the seat is welded. Broke an alen wrench trying to disassemble it before I notice it it was welded. However I believe a compatible seatpost (29.8mm)can help the seat exchange situation. Rest of the bike seems higher quality than the $168 price tag.
