I got my bike narrowed down

The type of bike i want that is.I love my denalli by swhinn.But i do worry it wont last a long time so i want the same bike made by a lot better company.What i mean is a i love how it rides and the way i sit up on it and how it handles this crapy road.I just dont trust it lasting to long mainly the wheels
