Never heard of it but got this Dynacraft gauntlet in on trade for the blue 4 bar cruiser I picked up at the junkyard. Looked cool so I figured I'll do something with it. Also got a sweet 20x3 wheel and tire set which I think I have a plan for.

I've had this one sitting for a while and I recently discovered it is a 24 inch not a 26 as I originally thought. Might put those 20x3's on and see how it looks and feels.

Dynacraft is a seller of cheap chinese toys and bsos. Not as common as Pacific bikes but equal on lack of quality. The sub $99 Gaunlet is a pre-teens fake mtb. Springer fork and frame spring but no dampening in either. Some are "Shimano Equiped" with just 1 Shimano compenent, a very low end rear derailleur. TD (Torque Drive) parts are rather bad. Stamped from sheet metal. Sheet metal brake arms. Press steel hubs. I'd repack all the bearings as they rarely okay from the factory. Cast iron crank arms (kinda short for adults)

I run a local bike coop and we get 100+ of similar bsos every year. Most get dismantled for scrap steel/aluminum and spare parts. I know other coops just send them directly to recycling intact.

But good for cutting and rewelding into other projects as it has no value.

That's what I kinda figured. I got my deal in the rims and tires I got with it. This was basically a throw in. I might just piece it down and use what I can and junk the rest.
