Wal-Mart Bicycles

A fleet of commuter style cruisers at my local Wal-Mart. Seems like the big box giant is catching on to the fact that mountain bikes aren't the only kind of bicycles out there. Now, a lot of people will recommend not buying these bikes because they are cheap and poorly made. I tend  to agree, unless you are a super casual rider. These particular ones are beach cruisers and so aren't well suited to Austin's hilly terrain, although I have seen a couple of them out on the street. It is encouraging though to see different styles of bikes available now, especially in a city that likes its skin tight Lycra.
