YES!! I've been looking for a bicycle, and this is the one!

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I don't think they'll sell a lot of those though. It isn't a core competency.

Now that would be too sweet. It would match my 9R.

For 60 bucks, that thing has got to be a total POS. Good luck with it.

First of all, I'm pretty sure the tyres alone on that thing are worth more than $60 so don't get your hopes up.

Second, and more importantly - this isn't their first bike. Back in the 70's they made a crappier version of my first "big boy" bike. My 1974 Yamaha Moto-Bike whomped all over that Kawi POS.

(damn I miss that bike - anyone else have one?)

Ordered Monday, received Wednesday

Bike is OK at best tires are a bit on the skinny side and they do not have a quick release mechanism (gotta use a wrench). Brake pads look a bit thin but all in all for 70 bucks you can't beat it. I personally like the seat the best

-Haven't had a chance to ride it yet, (gotta go buy a bigger wrench so I can put the handlebars on )

I got my bike as well... looks great, not gonna win any races though. I put it together about an hour ago, it seems to ride fine, although the front wheel seems a little out of true.

It's my cheap pit bike for a while....
