I saw a Kent BMX bike at a yard sale yesterday but I didn't bother to pick it up because Kent doesn't ring any bells for me. Does anyone remember these bikes and were they any good or just department store bikes?

Thanks
Andy

yup. Toys R Us sold them, and some didn't LOOK bad, but...
Anyone remember the bikes T'r'U sold BITD that actually had 3 pc alloy cranks and alloy rims, blue anodized? What were those?

Cheap, but somewhat aesthetically pleasing:
