Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I'm interested in the Schwinn SuperSport DBX for 40% commuting, 40% training/dayrides and 20% loaded touring (though this may be my most important priority). The other bike I was considering is the Kona Sutra.
What's up w/ Schwinn? Can't seem to find a local dealer and some say they're outa business completely.

"Bicycling" had a really good write up on this bike a few months ago, and I think their website archives all their reviews. I searched these forums a couple times for feedback on this bike, myself, so I'd be interested to see if anyone's got one. In my opinion, this seems like a great bike that can do it all. A lot of nice, well-thought-out features and a lot of bang for the buck. Schwinn went out of business a few years ago, but got bought up by Pacific. They catch a lot of flack, (and rightly so,) for their cheap, crappy X-mart bikes, but they also have mid- to high-end stuff that appears to be very nice. I would love it if they became a strong, quality company again, like Fuji after they had their slump.
Can't get anything to come up on Bicycling's website. Sent them an email but no response.
