I had been considering this bike big time, as it was exactly what I wanted... higher handlebars (instead of those annoying low flat ones that you literaly have to bend over to reach and create a sore back) and NO ANNOYING GEARS AND HAND BRAKES! Gears annoy me greatly, my chain always fell off and it seems that all bikes with hand brakes now a days need to be "broken in" so until this is completed, you are left with that loud annoying screeching sound which to me, is embarrising. SO this is why this bike seemed perfect! So I threw the listing in my cart while I thought about it. I came back at a later date to read the reviews again and honestly it was the lady from Tablerock, Missouri, who added pictures, that sold me on this bicycle. I LOVED the way it looked in "person"! Sometimes these product pictures are not enough, so to see hers for real made me literally rush down to walmart the following day to get my own!! I honestly figured they wouldnt have it. (I live in MA, and leicester now has a super center, which seems to carry practically nothing I realy want.. go figure.) But they had this, they had 2 actually and the male one aswell. I was SOOOO pleased and amazed.
I took a bus in, but RODE this bike all the way home and I dont even live in the same town as walmart! This is the BEST bike ever. Even though the seat and handle bars were to low, I still rode it to my home. I raised the seat and bars to my liking and it is SO darn perfect!!! Best bike I have ever had, seriously. Im 27 and I have owned all kinds, probably dozens of mountain bikes with hand brakes and lots of gears, and they do not even compare. Also, I am over 250lbs aswell which is why I wanted this bike so I could loose the weight, and it holds me just fine and is very comfortable. I am happy to say that excercising is FUN which means I may actually keep the weight off this time!! I will be sad when winter hits and I have to put away until spring. I would reccomend this beautiful light weight (that I have 0 problem carrying up and down stairs) bicycle to ANYONE AND EVERYONE!
