Ok, I know not many (especially those that know what a real bike is) would ride this, but I thought it was cool. I was looking through the Sunday advertisements and found the 26" Honda Trail Pilot Bicycle at Kmart. When I tried looking it up on the web (even with the item number they give) I was unable to find it. Just thought I would share with everyone.

Looks like lower end components, but since its from Honda, it will probably last forever as long as you change the oil every 3k....hehehe

Gads I wish that Honda made a bike that was as maintenance free as their autos. I'd buy one today. I bike commute and hate the constant maintenance that today's bikes need. Ride them in the rain just once and they rust. Really, it seems like bikes are not designed for riding, they are designed to get people to buy them. If they were designed for daily riding they would never fall apart so easily. Several bike commuters in my neighborhood buy cheaper bikes and just give them away after a short time because it is cheaper than the constant maintenance. Honda - PLEASE make a bicycle with your own components then mass marketed stuff out there stinks.

Yes, indeed!!! I did receive my SPIII today -- the wife made dinner plans with another family tonight so I didn't have time to look through it yet... :3:

Also, the Honda Pilot bike is available on E-Bay here: Click me!

Once I figure out where they're located, colorider, I need to visit them to make sure the SPIII didn't give me false info... :D

That's the place I had in mind!!! I guess I need to dig into the features of my GPS V to see if it does the same.

:eek:

MKell-What breaks-mine are low maintanence?

MKell,what breaks on your bike?I have had better luck than you,mine don't require much other than fixing a flat.
I don't commute anymore-haven't in 20 years-but I still ride about 10 miles a day in wet climate.
Back then,I had the double butted 5-3-1 frame,and decent Jap and Italian components.Now,I have one bike with a Aluminum frame,and low end Shimano comps,the other has a carbon frame and better Shimano components.I have flats,but have never had anything fail to function.The shifters do seem to be a bit delicate,but they haven't broken in >5000 miles.
I am really curious what fails?If I were commuting,I would probably do it on a decent(maybe $500) used bike off Ebay with a very sturdy MC lock.I had a cheaper Mongoose(about $250 new) bike for a while,but I got seduced again,and went upscale.The cheap bike wasn't bad,but I didn't have it long enough to see how it would hold up..
Let me know about your failures,if you get a chance.Thanks,Charlie
