https://www.walmart.com/ip/Vilano-Deuce ... e/45010301 Read the weight specs.If its true then this bike would be the lightest HT Walmart has ever sold.

The description is saying 41 lbs "assembled weight", not a shipping weight, so that puts it at about five pounds heavier than my Huffy TR745 was stock.

This one has steel fork lowers and what looks like an 8-speed freewheel, but that would account for maybe only 2-3 lbs tops.

Other than that, looks pretty good, with genuine Shimano shifters, aluminum frame and fork crown, and even comes in two frame sizes, 17 and 20".

Price-wise, it gets smashed by the Schwinn Aluminum Comp!
