    Probably for what you spent you could've picked up a quality used bike off of Craigslist that would be 10 times the bike of any Walmart BSO.

    you should inspect your schwinn avenue wheel hubs and bottom bracket for grease. if i remember correctly that bicycle has long stem schrader tubes and walmart dosnt sell them i never could understand that.

    Take your bike to a LBS and have it checked out!

    They'll probably charge you about $10-$15, but have it checked anyways!

    You will find that you will out grow the bike in time. It is a good starter bike but as you ride, get fit and experience new challenges (like hills, etc) you will find that perhaps you outgrew the bike. Not a bad thing but it is what it is!

    I used to work walmart, and I can tell you if you get aggressive, demand store mgr, present receipt and state your case that they will give you a refund...BUT you have to stand your ground and tell them in no uncertain terms, will you settle for less than a refund!

    I've only bought one bike from them, new in the box. a Mongoose D70r Not a bad bike til some pos cut my lock and took it...

    I agree with Tec. I used to work for them when I was 16 years old. If you stand your ground and do not give an inch, you can get a refund. Save all the paperwork! And that goes for anything you buy really be it from walmart or any place. I have had some bad luck with ebay lately but it has been my fault for not saving the paperwork and box

    Glad you are back on a bike. Sounds like the Schwinn will work out well for you for now. Nice job saving up the cash for a new bike and not buying one on credit. A lot of people wouldnt be that responsible.

    actually, its probably better to buy with a credit card
    if walmart gives you trouble about returning a defective bike, your card company is on your side and can reverse the charges from their end
    just gives you an extra level of recourse/protection

    Don't answer if you consider this question offensive or too personal, but how old are you?

    I wonder if Kent/Pacific/Dorel has permission to use the GMC Denali name? I mean, there's all kinds of cheap bikes out there that are named after some higher-end luxury/performance models from the automotive world. I'd be a little peeved if I had worked hard at developing a certain image in order to charge a premium price, only to have someone slap the same name on an inferior product...

    Bummer that you had so many problems, but at least you have a new bike now.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    You need a rack to mount a basket.
