Mostly Wal Mart doesn't have much in the way of bike stuff I want to get. However, I do stop in there from time to time. Ironically, the local Wally World had 27" tires when the LBS didn't. They also stock schraeder valve tubes, which Frankenbike uses. Imagine my surprise when I stopped in the Wal Mart in Lubbock to procure a quick emergency lock, and found them carrying a good quality "OnGuard" Mini U lock for a very reasonable $15. Again, they don't carry this at my LBS, just some kind of "Trek" branded lock that I think is made by Kryptonite - for over $40.
Subject Matter Mostly it's about local transportation cycling, as it exists in the here and now. It's got a smattering of other gratuitous toy recreation thrown in to keep y'all a little off balance. For those that don't know me, toy recreation means English & Italian cars, aircraft - and downhill skiing.
