    Have to say my favorite is the bikes assembled in Meijer’s stores may have the pedals fall off. It clearly isn’t a manufacturing issue and it doesn’t sound like it is limited to one store where the bike guy is an idiot.

    • Laura Northrup says:

      It sounds like they have a company under contract assembling the bikes everywhere – maybe they were using substandard tools/parts?

    • PadThai says:

      How is your favorite not “actually contains Viagra”?!

      • Laura Northrup says:

        There’s a surprising number of “male enhancement” supplements that claim to be herbal whatnot and actually contain the active ingredient in Viagra.

    And here I thought that extra spring in my step was the Vitamin B6…

  3. NotEd says:

    So now I have to go to the store and look for Body Basics ACTRA-Sx 500 Dietary Supplement Capsules so I can get my Viagra on?
    And what if the capsules I get don’t even have Viagra? I mean I’d hate for Body Basics to stiff me.

    My son’s bath seat was on the list and I applied to get the part to fix the problem. I don’t carry him while he’s in the seat, though, and it sounds like the people weren’t using it properly in the first place.
