I've been a road racer since 1982...and still nuts about criterium racing. Never thought I'd be caught dead on a mountain bike like this, or any "cheap" bike for that matter. But I have to admit, this bike is great. The overall quality and value greatly exceeded my expectations. This bike is really fun to ride on trails and bike paths and, after fitting it with some inexpensive SPD pedals from Performance along with some "stealthy" SPD shoes, it's even fun to ride on the road!! I added all the Schwinn accessories from Walmart, including bike computer, seat rack, lock, and seat pouch with spare parts, and the whole thing cost less than $200 bucks... paid much more than that for the front wheel on my Pinarello. I keep the Schwinn on my car's bike rack at all times and hop on it whenever I can. It's also great to go back in time with a brand name well known in my neighborhood when I was a kid. In short, you can't go wrong with the fun and value this bike has to offer. Kudos to Schwinn and Walmart!
