THIS IS SUPER LAME. Magna Glacier Points used to be $59, they just raised the price to $79. I NO LONGER RECOMMEND Magna Glacier Point bikes. Hey, Target, we’re in the middle of a recession, okay? No need to charge $20 more for your bikes now! How’s that helping the consumer??? LAME.
Magna Glacier Point mountain bikes at Target–I love them, what a great deal at
like $59 $79 each (wait, I thought they used to be $59…did they raise the price? Yes, I would not necessarily trust them to actually ride down a tough mountain trail on, but they’re great for riding around town, getting to work, etc.
Honestly I’ve owned like three of them already, they’re so reasonably priced that it’s no terribly big deal if one gets stolen or is destroyed. Would hate to have a $200-$300 bike stolen.
Pricing the bikes at $59 $79 is was the perfect way to get non-bike crazy people to actually buy a bike and get some exercise. I always wanted a mountain bike growing up but they always seemed so expensive, like $500 or something, kids always had the fancy performance models. But $59 $79???? Pretty revolutionary. Okay, $79 is nowhere near as revolutionary as $59, it’s super lame that they jacked the price up. I don’t want a marginal bike for $79. $59, yes, $79 no. Every kid and adult should get a bike, bikes are quite fun–probably the most elegant and efficient machines man has ever made as people say.
*UPDATE: I bought a used Trek Antelope for like $140 or so…good grief, it’s worth like 3 Magna Glaciers in terms of quality and rideability. So, my new recommendation is, get a used GOOD bike and skip the cheapo bikes. Man, it’s like Magna Glaciers aren’t even bikes compared to a Trek Antelope. Try a used good bike!*
