One bike expert inspects, calibrates, and takes the store’s new Kent Trouville hardtail MTB for a spin.
Big box stores like Walmart have a reputation for offering customers cheaply made mountain bikes that look impressive but perform like trash. But is that rap well-founded?
As Seth of Berm Peak explains, when it comes to budget bikes, simpler is usually better. By loading down a cheap frame with full suspension and too many features, the bike manufacturer creates more opportunities for equipment to fail. It’s like choosing between “an awesome hotdog or a terrible lobster,” Seth says.
The Kent Trouville MTB, however, has fewer features than its predecessors and appears to offer a lot of bang for the buck.
Is Walmart’s new hardtail MTB an awesome hotdog or a terrible lobster? Watch to find out.
