Question

Can you hook a baby sit on to this bike?

Wondering if you are able to hook a baby/child seat on this bike? If so, does it have to be a front child seat (in front of rider seat), or back seat (behind rider seat)?
Thanks!

yep. It depends on the style of mount but there is predrilled mounting holes on the back for a rack or child seat.....but a trailer is the way to go, especially if you have to load and unload the child by yourself.

To answer your question yes, you can mount an engine to it because I already have. you just need a universal mount for the front of the engine and extended bolts for the back. mounting the gas tank will be tricky due to the width of the frame but all you need is 2 u bolts wider than the frame and 4 small hose clamps to hols the bols to the gas tank. thats how I did it.

Should be do-able if the seat does not mount on the fender or fender supports. The accessory luggage racks they sell for this bike mount to the seat post.

Question

Bike for woman?

I saw this bike "Genesis Onyx 29" under "Women's" and feel in love with it! But after reading the description it says "men's" bike. So did Walmart make a Mistake in placing this bike or can women really ride it too? I am 5'5.

Thanks.

I have this bike and love it. It is a monster, turns heads when you ride it. It would be termed a "mens bike" because the top tube (tube that goes from seat to handle bars) does not dip down like a typical womens bike. The height from ground to top tube is 29". You probably could not stradle the top tube and put both feet on ground. That being said, you just have to slide sideways a little and you would be ok. Buy the bike, you won't be sorry. Hen

By saddle bag, if your talking about conventional under seat bags, yes. If your talking about the old fashioned dual strap type where the straps run though loops on the back of the seat designed for those straps, NO. The stock seat does not have those loops. The bike will also accept many designs of tail racks and back pannier type bags.

The drum brakes will stop you unless you are in a very wet/oil/ice area just like a car. Attn: Overly Excessive Drum Braking Can Damage Drum.

answer 2
Unless there is a major part failure, the rear coaster brake on this bike will bring you to a stop. I have found that this bike needs a good bit more distance to stop that conventional braked bikes. Coaster brakes work OK on small bikes we rode as children due to their small wheels. The much larger 29" wheels on this bike require the brake work much harder to stop you.

No, not so far!! In my dealings with bicycles, I have found coaster brakes to be very reliable. Of course do a pre-ride check of your equipment before you go out.

Ask a bike shop.

If the tires are all that's wrong with your Genesis product you're lucky. If tires are to hard to come by, return it to Walmart quickly, before you're out a few hundred more for the tires and the repairs it likely needs.

Sorry for #s here. This site replaces some parentheses with them no matter how many times I edit, and I use too many parentheses.

Also, sluggish can be a brake rubbing (they come from the factory defective#, or perhaps the chainguard rubbing the chain, or dirt in the derailleur, or a defective derailleur #very costly and not unlikely given the shoddy manufacturing). Maybe other things, but those should be checked first. Welcome to the money pit.

This comes mostly assembled. You have to install the front fork, front wheel, fenders, seat, and hadlebars yourself. Its really simple.
You dont have to install any bearings or anything like that.
If you have a basic allen wrench set and a crescent wrench you can put this together
