#false #frugal #fail

On DART this morning we were 3. That doesn’t happen a lot here in Dallas – three bicycles on one train car. One was a bright lime green and white Mongoose. I was bored and I googled it.

$219 ?!  A deal?!

But then I googled more and found THIS BLOG by Cycle Snack

A SCATHING review – summary of which is:

1) parts should not break on a brand new bike.

2) a bike should not weigh 40 pounds.

3) face it, a new bike of quality costs more than $200.

4) Mongoose should be ashamed, and has sold its soul to WalMart.

5) Why would you expect anything other than crap from WalMart?

Ouch.

Which reinforces a long-held opinion here at TFC: Used bikes are the best deal.
