Beyond awful and disappearing into the distance, I just threw up al little in my mouth.

Somebody, anybody tell me how you are supposed to shift gears on this thing...

Holy weld spatter batman! And what the heck is going on with those levers and spring coming off the cranks?

P.S. I'm building up a shopping bike atm which has the ugliest welds i'd ever seen until that blue monstrosity, pics definitely coming for this thread once it's finished :) .

Good god, rod brakes and westwood rims on a newly manufactured machine :shock: . I'd be tempted if the quality wasn't so horrific.

Is something weird going on with the spoke lacing on those wheels, something doesn't look right to me?

They are only $262 with free shipping to Oz!

I am currently waiting on a fairly ugly $83 folding mountain bike I purchased on aliexpress and will report back on the quality, etc when it arrives:

Added to that, you need to pay a forty gazillion dollar fine for posting a picture of teny wheels. Or are they teny rip offs? What has the world come to?

The low cost could also be a result of Chinese Government subsidies. Also individual sales like mine give people a taste so they might be inclined to make bulk orders of products.

That's a Tri bike, not a TT bike. The day is saved!
