Schwinn 28" Tourist

Postby Scar223 » Sun Feb 22, 2015 5:25 pm

Looking for a road bike and possibly one to use for charity (non competitive) fundraising biathlon this spring. I found this bike on sale at target today for under $100. I read another post on here that seemed positive. Any other experience with one o these. They also had a womens hybrid that was orange, also 28", for $59.98.

For $100 plus another $50 or so for a LBS tune up if you wish, I don't think you can go wrong. The Target website lists the same bike at $250... So even taking it directly to a LBS for a tune up if you wanted, you'd still be lots of $$ ahead, and I'm sure it would work just fine for your intended use.

At that price, they've either had it so long that they just want it gone, or it's a return.
Either way, It's a cheap way to get into riding roads without spending a lot of cash.
I'd go for it! You can always switch handlebars or seat, pedals or shifters, etc..
Plus, if it's the red and white Tourist they show on the website, It's sharp!

They have both the mostly red with white accents and white with red accents, I like the mostly white one. I would think at that price it would have to be a good deal.
