Now of course I do not expect all of you to be trying downhill runs
on Walmart bikes. For some, a Walmart bike is adequate (as many have colorfully illustrated in the first articles comments) for riding on the board walk or to go to the 7/11.

2) He had to tighten bolts to make it safe.
3) Under the stress of riding the bike designed to look like a
real mountain bike, it broke.
