    Well at lesat Schwinn, `Goose, and GT all have higher end bikes that are still good. It just seems the lower end got hit bad.

    I also asw a wally world schwinn that with exception to the suspension fork looked very similar to entry level bike shop bikes, seemed to have full shimano tourney/revoshift and the usual array of entr-level stuff. Might be worth buying if they are willing to sell it to you boxed and you assemble it yourself...thats given if your good at bike assembly that is
