Is that why they're shitty, because they're from WalMart? I mean, other than that, what's wrong with them? Are they just cheap imitations? And if you're going to customize it, what does it matter if you buy a $150 Bratz bike or a $20 Schwinn from a yard sale?

Just wondering...

the only thing good about them is the frame and the whitewalls
So the rest is crappy quality metal and/or chrome?

it's all pretty poor quality actually. one of the pieces at the rear of my frame wasnt welded in straight. instead of having fork bars that go onto the axle of the wheel, they are cut and welded to bottom part of the lower fork piece...

yep poor qaulity chrome too. the guy i sold it to as a girl frame lowrider managed to bend and strip the chrome from the handle bars within a few days of owning it, just from hopping.

the crank and front fork on them does look pretty shitty,
but the handlebars look good.

the crank and chainring is exactly the same as my lovely lowrider. except the cranks are longer of course.

Hmm, good information to know. Thanks.  ;)

the only good thing about them is the frame is pretty beefed up so they are wicked for doing seatpost tube chops.

true, it's the same as buying a generic frame from LRM or a website. just as long as you don't try to keep it all original.
