Another reason not to buy a bike at Wal-Mart
This is not a frivolous lawsuit. The bikes were never checked for proper assembly. Wal-Mart simply opened the carton and put the bike on the shelf. People were injured when the quick release front wheel became detached. A proper bike shop would would do two things. Check the quick release skewer, and educate the consumer on proper operation of a quick release. Wal-Mart failed on both counts, and they will be made to pay.
