You guys are gonna laugh but...I got a road bike..........from Wal-Mart. I had been looking at them at a bike shop for a while. Well today we were shopping at Wally World and I looked at the bikes there. I had seen this Schwinn there before that looked pretty good. Really light all alloy--nice components. Well, they only had 2 left and they marked them down to $154. Heck, I snapped it up. I swear that baby is every bit as good as the ones I saw at the bike shop for 4 times as much. I could be wrong but for $154 I was willing to risk it.
I rode it earlier at it was pretty sweet. Yep, I am a cheapo.
