Are Walmart Mountain Bikes Safe?

In a series of YouTube uploads, Seth from Seth’s Bike Hacks spends the $140.00 to test Walmart’s Mongoose MTB line and the results are what you’d expect. Not sure what Seth’s point is, but for some perspective, Walmart and Mongoose move millions of bikes a year and that’s quite a bit of bike for $140.00, and not really intended for the abuse they give it. These bikes are bought as gifts for kids or transportation to and from work. Also, see Chris Akrigg putting a Mongoose through way more abuse than Seth.

You get what you pay for or view on YouTube. So are Walmart mountain bikes safe? If you double-check the assembled and don’t jump them, then yes.

Miir Flagship

Miir

Bikes that benefit you and someone else

In a business that’s best described, as like “Thom’s for bikes and bottles,” the Miir flagship is an concept taproom bike and coffee shop. Don’t think one of those has existed before, besides maybe a coffeemaker and keg in the back of a shop, but it’s a nice place and they’re doing good work.

Nice pour and composition

Bike Hugger contributor Ben Moses took the photos for us, while I was in Vegas. If you’re into a two for one purchase that benefits those in need, stop by their flagship or visit Miir online. And if they start serving cannabis or whiskey too, they’d have a bike biz Superfecta

Nice selection

Your Grandma Races Cross (You Wish)

If you’ve ever thought, “wish my Grandmother raced cross,” here’s an inspiration for you AND grandma…Nancy Brown wins the 70-74 age group at CX Nats and did it to, just “Beat some other old women.”

Snowshoeing Gold Greek

Snowshoeing

Still had some residual Vegas to shake off, so we went snowshoeing courtesy of MSR Gear at Gold Creek with their Lightning Trail and Lightning Explore snowshoes. Got our fix of fresh air, a workout, and muscles hurt today I didn’t know I had.

Next time, we’ll go farther into the powder….

Gold Greek Valley

Don’t usually food blog either (hey mixing it up in 16!), but I ate this whole plate of tacos at Los Cabos in North Bend

Tacos!

What did we also discover? Snowshoeing is a thing…the place was packed.

Trek Boone: Rough Road Ahead

hhgh

Shook off CES and Vegas riding the Boone in Seattle. Since I last shared photos of it, added PDW fenders, a Velo Orange rack, and custom camera bag. Switched the stock wheels for Easton tubeless with Hutchinson tires too.

With this setup, I’m ready for the rough road ahead and wherever the bike and camera takes me. It’s just not on a cross course, but out in the woods and desert.
