Sadly no way to get them home has to be delivered true story I thought about picking up my bike from walmarts rofl till I saw the box .omg I had no idea how big box was lol.i have no idea what I was thinking.. but that sure is a nice bike and used is the way to go do many folks by nice bikes ride em 3 times put them in garage and they sit.not me I love to ride. It's calming today my cassette remover arives . Think derailleur comes Monday and tye thing that excites me most the stand comes God knows when llol I'm so sick of flipping bike over. .crazy but decent stand has good reviews like 35 bucks after my discount. Btw do you all recall them internal geared bikes the gears was in hub. What's the draw backs? I figure there has to be dome since we'll they just kind of seem cool
Sturmey Archer and Bendix did internal gear hubs 3 to 7 gears but those use a shift cable and lever.

The coolest (in my view) were what are called kick back 2 speed hub where you back peddle about a quarter turn to change gears. Low is great for take off or carrying a load. High is great for cruising like 8-15 mph depending on cog sizes.

It wasn't simple my freind... walmart says they refunded me. Chime says they didn't. Chime says call walmart walmart says call Chime. I do both and they repeat last thing they said. Simple return no my friend..

Good point my friend btw you remind me of my father a course I'm sure your younger. But far as logistics and life you remind me of him ps your also way more mechanical inclined . He could break anything for real I've always wondered if he was my real father lol since I'm way more like my uncle even my sister is more like him I'm like my mom she could fix anything but sucked at life skills. . I may quit doing walmart target is nicer.. but we have non.
