I need a new bike and would greatly appreciate some advice.
My boyfriend and I were looking around and saw a Diamondback that's slightly out of my price range, but nice nonetheless. Then there's Target, which carries a number of Schwinn bikes for about $100 cheaper.
I'd like to stick with a mountain bike because I like them much better than cruisers and such. But I don't need some fantastic fabulous bike. Then again I don't want one that is going to be obsolete (parts-wise) and worn down in a few years.
Are Schwinn's pretty good in terms of duribility, or should I just invest in the diamond back? I ride my bike less than a mile to and from school about 3 days a week, and anywhere close-by. In the future, I would be riding it about 5 days a week, give-or-take. This is all sidewalk/street city riding. I may be getting back into light mountain biking in the future.
