Schwinn Firewire 4.0 $190 + tax until tonight only

Postby rudtf » Sat Aug 01, 2015 12:47 pm

Just bought the Firewire 4.0 at target for $190 + tax and free shipping in case anyone's interested. it's on a temp sale of 30% and another 30% on all bikes till tonight at midnight. the only decent review i've been able to find on this bike was on this site so i thought i'd share in case anyone was interested. Also, specs on Target's site is incorrect. i emailed Schwinn about what i thought were obvious error and they verified the following:

weight is 38 lbs, not 41.9 as listed
front and rear brakes are disc, not rear linear as listed
tire size is 29 x 1.95 not 1" as listed

don't know much about bikes but just wanted something decent and hardtail to ride from time to time on roads and local trails at a good price. if anyone has some suggestions on recommended upgrades on this bike, i'm all ears. i can't leave anything alone on all cars and motorcycles i've owned... even golf clubs so i'm sure this will be no different.

If you reduce the browser zoom to 50% or so, the whole bike appears. Or right click "view image". It's a quirk of oversized pics linked from file sharing sites to this board.
Looks like a nice bike.Suntour XCM fork, Altus derailleur, replaceable derailleur hanger, wtb saddle. Can't tell if it's a 7 speed freewheel or 8 speed free hub. The XR-Pro (RIP) was about the only stock Walmart bike with a similar level of components.
