    Because by the looks of the picture, it seems like the rider would have to lean forward much like a mountain bike. Does the rider get to sit straight up like a cruiser bike?

    • A. You can adjust the front handlebar stem to a straight up position to bring the handlebars back so you can ride comfortably like a cruiser bike. After riding over 500 miles I just did that last night and now it's a lot more comfortable.

    This clicking noise wasn't present when bike was purchased at the store. Haven't ridden the bike on the road at this point. Not sure if I should return the bike.

    • A. Walmart's return period is 90 days. Hearing clicking noises while pedaling (maybe with gears slipping) and silence while coasting points to the gear changer being slightly off index. This is common as new bikes settle in. The gear shifter cable pull can be easily adjusted by turning a knurled nut at either end of the cable either at the gear changer or the twist grip. Lots of web sites give bicycle tuning help.

    • A. Whenever you aren't peddling a clicking noise will occur because of the chain's non-movement.

    • A. Return the bike and get another one. I had the same problem and returned the bike and then purchased another one online (ship to store) for pick up and assembly at the store. It works fine now. I had it for about a month now. Someone used ours and returned it to the store but since we couldn't ride it in the store didn't notice the noise until we got it home.

    • A. It could be normal, depending on the sound. I know its hard to describe. But there are two things I would check. First check the sprockets for bent teeth. Second, check the derailer and make sure its lining up with the sprockets gears. If not, it will sound as if it is trying to shift gears but can't quite do it. This can be fixed by adjusting the derailer; instructions are in the manual.

    This bike is great!!! great price!! First lets get it straight.. no I'm not going to go downhill dirt trails flying over jumps at 40 + mph with this bike. YES i understand (you get what you pay for) and this bike is exactly what i wanted comfort,smooth ride,low price. I added a bell computer, and most of all a cloud 9 seat WITH spring post. 7 gears is perfect for street-canal paths-mild dirt trails. YES the chain fell off once,yes the handlebars could be a little wider,yes the peddles are cheap, even with my upgrades or if i have to get new rims/gears i'm still way below your bike store prices. I'm also way more comfortable on this bike then my 1980's 1990's full steel no suspension Huffy bikes. nuf said ... spend the $100 bucks.

    I bought a Huffy Black Widow online. It's a full suspension Mountain Bike, and very very nice. It had all the features I was looking for except one.....comfort. It didn't fit me, and was very uncomfortable. I have another Mountain Bike that isn't full suspension, and just decided to keep it and exchange the Black Widow for this Avalon. I went to 7 different Wal-Mart stores until I found one with a single Avalon in stock. I returned the Huffy, and left with the Avalon. I rode it in the parking lot, and found the handlebars were slightly out of alignment with the frame, the brakes were assembled too loosely with too much play, the seat post quick disconnect was loose, and the gears were completely out of adjustment. The front tire was improperly installed in the fork and was leaning a bit. After 45 minutes of adjusting and test riding in the parking lot, the bike was ready! I took it home and rode along with a friend for 45 minutes or so. Her bike is a very nice name brand Hybrid with 21 speeds and she was unable to keep up during a little sprint. I might add, she is very athletic and competitive. At any rate, the bike performs well. It rides well, with great handling and braking and the comfy suspension takes out the hard bumps. I was skeptical about ONLY 7 speeds, but some thought was put into the ratios, and they are more than adequate. The Aluminum frame makes the bike very light weight and manageable. I see other reviewers complaining about failures and non-working features. This is a production item, hastily assembled and shipped. The Wal-Mart bike builder is merely an associate who takes the parts out of the box and assembles them at no extra charge. Some other stores charge a fee. The bike builder does not tune and align the bike! It's the purchaser's responsibility to fine tune the mechanics. One of the reasons bike stores charge so much more than Wal-Mart for bicycles is the time they spend setting up each and every bike. If you're incapable of setting up a bike, then please do yourself a favor and spend the extra money to have someone do it for you, or buy it from a competitor that offers this service. To set up the bike you only need a couple of metric box wrenches, a few Allen wrenches and a phillips screwdriver. This is an attractive bicycle (the paint scheme is really nice, but this is subjective) with good features and performance, and in my opinion....a great value!

    The Avalon by Next Bike sold at WAL-MART a true cross-over cruiser out of the box and few upgrades your ready to go. Lets start for the money its hard to find an all aluminum bike for under 100.00 US dollars. I have seen this bike on the Virginia Beach boardwalk everywhere, some with the Electric Green paint and also the subtle silver and brown that suits my taste. Being one that likes to tinker and improve I do believe I have found the proper set of upgrades that can turn this bike in to a truly comfortable ride. If you notice my Avalon uses a different handle bar configuration, not that there was anything truly wrong with the stock bars. I just prefer the look and feel of 1920s styling on a cruiser. Lets face it most of the time you will be having your hands on the handle bars so grip what you like. One of the short falls on this bike is no braze-on’s to mount a water bottle, but this can be solved with the handle bar mounted cage. You can get one of these for around 6 bucks at most bike shops and don’t want to get dehydrated while you are enjoying your Avalon. The other contact point is the seat, I replaced mine with the Forte Seat from performance bike shop, it was on sale and provided a better shape and fit for my bottom side. The seat change was just for personal preference as well. Now lets look a the unique features of the Avalon that set this bike apart. The Avalon is all about the duel suspension frame and cruising comfort so lets take it another step. If stock duel suspension is good, Then upgraded triple suspension must be even better so that’s what I did. First the fork had to be changed, the stock Avalon fork is way to stiff and heavy. Its made from cheap stamped metal. Hey remember you only paid 98.00 dollars for this bike don’t feel bad. I used a SR Suntour M-2025 w/coil spring, 63mm travel and 1-1/8" threadless, semi-integrated, semi-cartridge bearing headset to replace the stock one. This gives the bike a smoother ride and allows for a better mount for upgraded wheels but we will get to that later on. The rear suspension spring on the Avalon is adjustable and a great design no need to fix it, remember I said triple the addition of an alloy suspension seat post gives you the smooth cruiser ride that cant be match by anything on the bike rack under 300 bucks and lightens up the bike. Wheels are everything for cycling enjoyment so the stock wheels had to go and replaced with a Formula alloy FM21 front hub, FM31 rear hub; Bontrager 550 36-hole rims w/brushed sidewalls and a set of Bontrager LT3, 26x2.0" tires. Hey there are black also and give you that bad boy look. The brake calipers do have a bit to be desired so those were replaced with a set of Tektro V-brakes used with the Avalons original levers. The worst part of the Avalon is the drive system it’s a very cheep bottom bracket system with heave components that are far from smooth. I fixed this problem by removing the rough running bottom bracket with a smooth Shimano 131, only using the 38 ring, a Shimano Cassette 11-34, 7 speed and Wellgo nylon platform pedals. Now you have a pretty nice ride going here and with the price of gas going up lets do the commuter touches like adding fenders and rear rack. I must say the chain guard that comes stock is perfect and with fenders to keep road dirt and water from striping your back your read for a day at the office. So with a few modifications two thumbs up for the Avalon by Next Bike.

    I'm writing this review now, after owning my avalon comfort bike for one month, and I am impressed, I have owned other bikes over the years that cost much more then my avalon but not one of those ever road as good or was as comfortable as my new bike. This 7 speed shifts easy up or down in any gear, I put an average 8 miles a day on my bike, 7 days a week, the handle bar stem adjustment and quick release seat clamp make it very easy to adjust both. The only thing I changed on my bike was the tires, only because I like a wide tire feel on the street, and I put on a noseless comfort seat, it was the tires and the seat off my old bike. I have rode this bike in the dirt and on the street and with the duel suspension it rides good on both and I'm 6' 1'' 250 pounds, If I could give it 6 or 7 stars I would, as for the people that are saying negative things about this bike, Hmmmm! I scratch my head...

    I bought one of these 6 years ago at $99, and then mounted a cargo rack with a basket on it behind the seat. This has proven to be one of the best investments I ever made. It has been a superb "SUB" (sport utility bike). I run around town almost every day, picking up stuff like groceries, supplies, clothes, mailing packages, etc. The tires and brake pads have given several thousand miles of use and still going strong. As a result of having this bike, I only have to buy 2-3 tanks of gasoline per YEAR now. The 7-speeds are more than enough for any general use, and much more trouble-free than 24-speed bikes. A++
