Now Is a Great Time to Buy a Bike

My youngest son turned eight yesterday so we took him to Toys R Us to look at bicycles. Turns out, it was a perfect time to go bicycle shopping because they had a lot of the bikes marked way down in order to make room for this year's models. Anyway, he got a Mongoose bicycle for $34.98. They waived the $10 assembly fee because there was a tiny rip in the seat.

Granted, the "new" Mongoose bikes are NOT the same as the old Mongoose bikes since Mongoose was bought out a few years ago. Now, they are mass produced and priced to sell. But, $34.98 for any bike is a good deal.
