Genesis Track One – Another $150 Walmart ‘Fixed Speed’ Bicycle
It doesn’t have quite the ‘cachet’ as the equally priced Mongoose fixed-speed bike that debuted at the behemoth retailer in March, but it comes with a flip-flop hub!
The Genesis TrackOne also includes a kickstand, which hopefully is the removable kind that’s bolted on between the chainstays (though I doubt it), and it gets drop bars rather than the Mongoose’s flat bar.Â Here’s the full description from Walmart’s website:
The Track One from Genesis is a brand new dual drive bicycle that features the best of both worlds – single speed and direct drive. Simple in concept, but not execution – this one-speed bicycle has plenty of features. Tried and true steel frame, alloy wheel set, front and rear handbrakes, and a choice between direct-drive track style or single-speed freewheel drive.
Genesis 700C Mens Fixed-Speed Track Bicycle:
- 700c Lightweight Track Bike (editor’s note: shipping weight is 39.7 lbs)
- Front and rear alloy caliper brakes
- Sturdy alloy rims
- High performance racing saddle
- Unique flip-flop hub has both a freewheel and fixed gear sprocket
And if fixed-speed bikes aren’t your thing, how ’bout a $500 carbon fiber bicycle?
