Took your city from your avatar, did search for Craigslist in that area. Went under bikes and did search for BMX. There is literally 290 results. First one that came up is someone selling 2! Free Agent 20" bikes for $100.

I wouldn't pay over $450 total for 2 of those Walmart bikes. Used is the way to go more value for the $$$

+1 it used to be garage sales and thrift shops, these days it just takes a trip to Craigslist and it's all right there waiting.

With so many good quality used bikes all over the place, there's really no reason to ever buy a Walmart bike.

Besides, whether it comes from Walmart or Craigslist, it'll probably need a full overhaul/tuneup before it's really ready for riding anyway.


Relax.
Balance.
Focus.

5 years later, I'm now curious what the OP went with, maybe didn't get anything? The Mode 900 didn't look like a bad bike for the price.

^ That Powerlite looks really nice, love the green color. cool

That green color is cool .  Green mags would be cool on it . Not sure where these are sold anymore.  Was a cool brand back in the day.

They’re not for sale anymore, was just throwing it out there that I have a $160 Walmart/amazon bike that’s been upgraded and can complete with any other high end brand.

It’s a 2013 model I believe and I just so happen to have found the last to on amazon when I was searching there for bike stuff.

Pretty cool find if you ask me. It was a Pacific made Powerlite but Pacific is now tied in with Dorel(Doral- don’t remember how it’s spelt). When It showed up the bottom bracket was tightened so much that it snapped it in half. Giving me a reason to call and talk with a gentleman from Pacific that said at the end of 2018 that it’s possible more might be released at a later date but it’s a definite release.

I saw Powerlite and said hell yeah!! BUY IT NOW was smashed, I own both. One built and one unbuilt just Incase it becomes a rare P-Lite. Never know

Thanks for the shout out brother.

Any one hands down can find a pretty sweet bike with a quick conversation and the same hobby attachment at a yard sale, LetGo, Offer Up and even Uncle Henry’s. UH’s is where I absolutely hit my best deals, old school guys know about and still use it cause they’re not computer savvy enough so they list the old school way you know?

Found my 89 Performer on LetGo, completely original Magenta with all of her goodies. Now if an older Powerlite popped up I’d be in heaven lol

Thanks for the input!    lol

I’ve got a Mongoose mode 100 in blue. I’m going to slap some old school decals and some old school parts with a little mid school and donate it to a kid locally that can’t afford a bike right now. Family lost their entire house in a fire about 2 months ago. The kids best friend was visiting from Florida and unfortunately he had a space heater catch fire in the back room where the friend was. Everyone in the family made it out but the kid visiting didn’t make it.

3 kids total so I’ve got a Redline Roam from 05 that I’m trying to get together both for the oldest kids. Awful situation, the reporters were complete assholes like always. Happened right in Hampton NH not far from my house.

Tightened the headset, few washers added to the inside of the front wheel just to take it for a spin. $100, 98 Performer with one of the nicest original used mags. Before and after, chrome stem is the after picture. Great solid bike
