No problem...I fully believe we should all just be helping each other, regardless...we all have two wheels to work with, no matter if they're attached to pedals or not.
There are other options available for that price point - maybe not as quick, but definitely more reliable...I'd check around Craig's List and the Want Ad. Basically, the mantra is if you can't really pronounce it, chances are you'll be fixing it within the year. Parts are the next major issue, since suppliers of these cheap bikes are a dime a dozen but no one stocks the parts. You would be better off buying two and cannibalizing one for whatever you need! But that's neither cost effective, nor a good use of time, since something else is bound to happen.
