thats the exact bike and price i paid at a wal mart store. i bought it in june or july of this year. i enjoyed riding it very much. but a couple weeks ago i noticed the tires where full of dry rot cracks. now the back tube has a big hole and the tire itself is splitting apart. the tires seem very cheaply made and i feel ripped off. i think im pass the wal mart return policy. for $150 i expected better. should i call the manufacturer for a free replacement or would that be a waste of time?
so 4 months of riding 6 miles 2 times a week. is that really the life expectancy of a bicycle tire?? the name brand on the tire is PONELY. the numbers are (57-622) 29 x 2.125 and its 40 psi.
any ideas where i can order tires and tubes that will last but not cost almost as much as the bike itself($150)?
also this bike had a big sign about how its aluminum but i found rust under the fenders already.
or should i just look for a cheaper huffy single speed cruiser with the smaller, cheaper tires?
