This was purchased in a weak moment for a project that never was. Please make it go away.

Brand new, never used. Somehow missing front brake cable and housing, maybe it was that way out of the box. It is dusty from sitting for some time, and has a bit of rust on the headset from an errant basement drip.

For what it’s worth this seems to be a functional bike, especially if you know what you’re getting into with such a low end piece. Maybe you need a total winter beater, or a bike to get around a warehouse, or something for a kid, or a project to hack apart and weld back together. Maybe you really like McDonalds.

$20.

Does it come with SPD clown shoes?

It’ll probably become the bike for the project that never was for me, too, but if you’ve still got it, I’ll take it off your hands.

FWIW I put air in the tires, tweaked a couple things, pedaled the bike a few times, and couldn’t stop laughing either. I think I’m going to enjoy this toy.

Unless it kills me by its lack of braking power. On my todo list: to look up some videos on connecting/adjusting brakes and then ride, ahem, carefully, over to Kranick’s to get the job done.
