This Walmart MTB looks incredible, but is it really?
This Walmart MTB looks incredible, but is it really?
Walmart is a place for cheap stuff, and so understandably their bikes are VERY cheaply made. I take no issue with that. My criticism has always been that they prioritize features that make the bike LOOK more impressive, but PERFORM worse. The Kent Trouvaille mountain bike is something different from Walmart. This bike has LESS features, and offers a ton of value for the price… or it least it looks that way. Today, we’ll find out if this bike is really as impressive as it looks.

but u can buy a trek for the same price
I bought a mongoose from Walmart , what a piece of trash , I took it to get the gears fixed the guy said “you will spend more than the bike is worth” and I left the pos there lol. Mongoose used to be good in the days of GTs and redlines and dynos !!!
If an immagrant…: shows singleltrack sampler
here in the phils that bike looks like toseek or pinewood brands made in china. i highly suggest you replace the inner tubes with brand new reliable brand and make the old stock as spare. i learned it the hardway with knee and elbow scrapes. yup most of the parts are loose and needs double checking
Has anybody seen the mongoose ardor bike? It’s a "trail bike" from wm 27.5, I hadn’t seen it at my local Walmart before
Looks good to much money 🤑 cheep for me fir our 9 year old boy girl twins is $150.00 or less i would and did pay more when they were little now if they forget to put it behind the lock gate they get stolen cant even put a chain bike lock and lock it to the front door railing thieves don’t really want then on your front porch at night but thats when they come even knowing we have ring door bells us-less cut that chain right off
Very interesting 🧐 Great video.
What does he expect? The people who work at the store assemble the bike, it’s not assembled and sent to the store.
Sometimes that’s all people can afford
I’m only 14 and I watched the Walmart bike videos when the first came out
Everyone can thank Kev Central for increased quality with Walmart bikes😂
I have one like these,
My wheel broke twice the brake fails alot and u had to get new brake leavers
But other than that its good
Kent no thanks rather get a older trek or specialized
I was ok until you cut off the kickstand. The average rider NEEDS a kickstand. Only the big ego riders think they’re stupid.
If you haven’t already, I’d like to see what you think of the ~$400 Costco bikes that aren’t fully pre-assembled. I actually bought one before returning it to buy one from an actual shop. Never actually put it together or rode it.
Biggest problem, Grandma buys for little Johny. Johny this thing hard to pedal. My grips fell off, the seat fell off. LittleJohny done with it first day… Mountain bikes suck says little Johny, to never ride again for the rest of his life. Little Johny ends up being that guy who drives a dually as a passenger vehicle, aiming to run bicyclists off the road. long story long, walmart bikes are good for no one!
Every bicycle i hv got from WM the FIRST thing i do is strip it down to the last bearing & lube & reassemble it correctly
Are you familiar with the Schwinn 29" Axum Men’s Mountain Bike? It’s been considered the best Walmart bike for of couple years now. Looks like this is pretty similar quality. From what I’ve heard there are pros and cons to each and depending on your specific intentions these two bikes are pretty comparable.
I have a Scott mtb and have had it for 2 years and is a very good bike can u do a review on a Scott mtb
So buy it and take it straight to your mechanic of trust, got it lmao
If you don’t have the disc brakes to start…stop.
new biker here. what’s wrong with having a kickstand? it sounds so convenient,
American quality XD
that’s noting. I did a manual in the parking lot… and the front wheel fell off. i took it home and prity much all the bolts were striped
There is no such thing as they in manufacturing or bikes.
All manufacturing has1 epicentre &its Satans BEAST computer. Thcomputer is only allowed a specific hive.
These are Satans TARE RACE.
That bicycle was built by them. Satan HATES bicycles/free energy. MONEY 2function ONLY.
That bike has 2gargantuan demons. Almost all bikes now have only enough top end 2pedal around 15mph.
Secondly u arms too extended, u hunched over. Takes 4ever drive to thstore, your sore from poor position.
I am th worldleader &king of kings in all aspect bicycles.
Lol no i dont have videos. I explain it all HERE:
(But people wont buy it, they cant)
Handlebars, bikes ergonomics engineered by Lucifer. He HATES free energy.
95% humans Lucifers kids, tares. They are not humans. They subscribe, perpetuate false reality stupidity in all things. They are cmputer cntrolled hive mind. But they dont know that.
Handlebar must be 29 or 30" 4average adult 5’9"
2 reasons. A front basket HANGING BY STRAPS FROM BARS is how 2transport up2 70lbs.
Bicycles are MADE 2COMMUTE STRAIGHT LINE &CARRY THINGS. PERIOD &safety, stability handling. Those are your parameters. Revolve around those. Period.
Bars wider then shoulders ONLY.
This forms a stable TRIANGLE required4 stability handling especially once u add weight front basket.
Secondly, wide bars allow u carry wide objects like 5 2×4 wood resting on bars strapped 2waist. U can also carry things on long bars such as 5gallon buckets bar ends. Wide bar DRAMMATICALLY improve stability.
As does LOWERING LOWERING LOWERING thseat.
U must use heaviest ULTRA STRONG STEM.
Bicyclists can not be taught. Bcuz they are pharisees. Know it alls. Regarding seat height. Most humans are NOT HUMANS. They are poisonous cmputer programs.
Lol ypur knees can bend pedaling &efficientcy functions just fine low seat. Lol satan teaches place head 6 feet from pavement, give tiny bars so now u a sky scraper &taller they are thmore easily they fall. Lol. I taught people how 2sit on bike 1980"s. Graeme Obree built bike matching my specs &30 guys broke hour record using my specs.
Lol my seat is slammed down as LOW AS I CAN GET IT. This raises your bars essentially. So u NOT bent over but LOWER TO THGROUND 4ridiculous STABILITY &AERODYNAMICS.
U will realize 1.5 mph at 21mph top speed electric motor as such even tho u upright but head several inch lower..
WIDE BARZ LOW SEAT, SEAT FORWARD, BARS IN CLOSE 2U PERIOD.
Worlds best basic e bike bicycle design is used by me exclusively. This will not see production ¬1 person will ask 2c it in comments. Wide would they? They are pharisee tares. Computer animations. Know it alls.
All E bikes are absolutely deploreable contraptions built by Lucifer boys.
All manufacturimg &non humans are controlled by Satans BEAST cmputer. That computer revolves around me as its epicentre arch enemy.
Meanwhile, all thworlds problems can be solved in thgarden. And 4godsakes sell your stable of 230 horses.
A good option for someone who can’t afford a high end bike.
Someone like me will never waste 200 bucks on that thing.
I’ll probably get a pair of tires instead.
An old friend of mine who I respect a lot designed that bike with the intent of putting a decent bike within reach of most people. Good on you bud!
wait, 2015 was 7 years ago?
Biker’s utter hatred of kickstands is hilarious
"and you don’t place a particularly high value on your life"
Finally. I found a bike for me
Mountain biking is making a big resurgence and l can see why .
People can ride in fantastic countryside and keep fit and use the bike as normal transport .
And with cheap bikes like this it opens the sport up for more people .
A bike for riders that have enough skills to probably want a better bike.
holy shit they finally made a pearler !!!!
I bet you miss Florida
Im 5’11 I prefer a 16" / medium XC frame.. this size for me feels at home
Me on the way to Walmart to buy a loaner bike 😂
will it get my uncle juan from yob to yob ?
Why the hell is any bike over $300 and its not even electric
Whats the Price of the bike?
Saludos desde México
Died at "The Harassment". Sounds like a 2000’s WWE wrestler name.
I have a Schwinn MTB carbon composite , It sold new for about $1400.oo twin disc front and rear with the exact same tires that are on the China bike knockoff. , The China bike steel knock offs are heavy as hell , ❓❓❓
speaking as someone who was once an assembler for a wal-mart. I can tell you I was expected to be able to pump out a bike every 8 mins. and this was to include the time to get the bike to the racks.
I bought a bike at Walmart and Immediately afterwards saw YouTube videos about bike sales on my feed. How is this? I distinctly know that my receipt was a cash sale. You motherf+ckers. Google be damned.
There not that cheep anymore either
Happy to say that I don’t live near a Walmart. I do however live at the next best place, that is less than 600 miles south of china…
Yes, I get to see some of the Walmart bikes long before you at less price.
Thanks for the fun informative video.

Kent was cool,. Back in the 70’s I think? Been missing for a while. 😁 No one needs 7 inches of Mtb Saddle giving an examination. Hell no, Not me. 😣
