    Pros: Lightweight and good shocks for the price, decent for just riding around the neighborhood.

    Summary: Got this bike because I was going to get back into MTB riding and didn't want to spend a lot in case I didn't have the time to ride as I would like. Price was good and thought that because it was a Schwinn, it must be good. I was wrong...This bike is ... read more
