Help Me Decide Between These 3 Bikes Please

Hi Guys,

This is my first bike purchase, so I am getting something entry level. I have found these 3 bikes which are priced reasonably.

Tommaso Monza 2008

K2 Mach 2.0 7007

Schwinn Le Tour 2007

I'll try to test them out, but which has the best reputation for quality?

That's the stupid way to choose a bike.

Here's the best way to choose a bike: 1) lay the bikes down; 2) straddle each bike one by one, quickly thrusting it upward into riding position; 3) whichever one doesn't rack you is your bike.

Works every time.

While this is always the best way to decide it is not always possible. If it is not possible to test all three, I would get the cheapest one and get it set up correctly. If you like riding you're going to want to upgrade pretty soon so there's not much point is spending more than you have to on your first bike.
