I'm still looking for the tires, but I found the tubes at one of the 3 local Wal-Marts. Hint, hint to Wal-Mart... The stock tires are great for off-road but I NEED a road tire that has a solid centerline for everyday use such as "Bell Sports 27" Road Tire" Model:1004547.

answer 5
most bike shops and walmart carry the tubes. Most that I've found use the "presta" valve which is the european version. You'll need an adapter for your pump or a pump that works for both styles. The usual american version is called a "schraeder" valve stem.

I've been in two Walmarts in the past week and the color of each bike in each store was white with florescent accents. I personally don't like this color scheme especially on the white deep v aerodynamic style rims.

This is a "metric" based bicycle and I'd invest is one set of "metric" allen wrenches and an equally cheap set of "metric" combination wrenches. Always have a phillips and straight style set of screw drivers and a 6" crescent wrench too. (PS) Did I mention a good air pump?

The fork is not adjustable. Nor does it have a lockout. It has a very small amount of travel and takes a lot of force to move it.
