Bike Snob NYC procured the infamous Mongoose Cachet fixed speed bike from Walmart, assembled it, and rode it for the distinction of first to review this bicycle.
When I ordered the bike the website did not give me the option of selecting a size, so I can only assume Walmart only offers one. Measuring the bike, I determined that it was what most manufacturers would probably call a 55cm or perhaps a “medium” — which, as it happens, fits me fine.
But enough of all this technical “sizing” jargon. I know what you’re really wondering at this point, and the answer is, “Yes, it does have an integrated chainguard tab.”
Executive summary: The build quality you’d expect from a Walmart bike, comes as singlespeed but has a flip flop hub, iffy brakes, 48 spoke wheels, about a “Medium” one size fits all, and Bike Snob now has a manservant / Boy Friday. No mention on its lateral stiffness or vertical compliance or the bike weight. Bike Snob’s complete review here.
Should I get one to review? Afterwards, we could use this as a bait bike to snare bike thieves.
