So i was doing the usual friday night thing and wandering the aisles of my local super wal-mart ;) back in the electronics section i was admiring the ample selection of HDTV's and realized that they were playing about a 10 minute segment of some behind the scenes stuff from New World Disorder 8. it was on their walmart HDTV channel...i was stoked!
with all of the walmart bashing going on, i thought that playing nwd8 was a small redeeming factor :thumb: it's too bad noah wasn't with me, we probably would've grabbed some lounge chairs from the display, some popcorn from the snack area and sat in front of the biggest HDTV there to watch the loop over and over...just because ;)

This bike was assembled by the hands of skilled Italian mechanics to be tuned up and ready to ride right out of the box. We worked directly with the factory in Italy to offer you a premium ride at everyday low prices. Minimal assembly is required for this premium bicycle.

Damnit I hate working on walmart bikes. I'm hoping that when we move our shop we'll increase revenue enough to refuse to work on them like some nicer shops do.
I feel you on that one, I cant tell you how many times I get"Thats more than I paid for the bike" Sometimes we get to put them in something better, but more often than not they just go get another one.
