So I'm satisfied with my purchase and I have already had a ton of fun riding it. I just wanted to see if anyone had any information as to what model of Schwinn road bike this is. I took some pictures and if there is any other information, or if you need more pictures, let me know.
Thanks in advance.

That's a Schwinn as much as this guy was Edgar in Men in Black.

I think it's a repainted Schwinn Prelude.

Aside from the color, and a couple of stickers, it looks almost identical to this Schwinn Varsity 700C from Walmart:
I worked on one for a friend, and it seemed okay given what it was, except the headset was too tight.
XMart bike. Well, I see jfs beat me to it.
Nutted rear axle, odd shift levers on bars next to stem = typical XMart.

The only reason I say it's a prelude is because when I looked under one of the brake cables I saw a bright blue color.

Exactly like this bike. Also the specs match up too. Guy said he just put new tires on it, Innova flame treads 700C x 25 rated 100 PSI.
Guess I learned a lesson...
You are having fun riding it, thats all that matters!!!

I'm just soured on the price. I made some sacrifices and my expectations of the bike were higher. I feel like a damn fool, but I'm going to ride it tomorrow. Isn't the bikes fault!
