The Specs of 2 Schwinn Bikes

2 Schwinn Bikes - I'm partial to the upright riding position of the Comfort Bike but would like the opinion of this forum on which might be a better bike based on the specs. Price is the same for both bikes.

•Shimano 21-speed drive-train with SRAM MRX Pro Grip Shifters for shifting efficiency

(More Specs)
Men's Schwinn Bicycle:
•This Men's Schwinn Bicycle is perfect for on or off-road riding
•Schwinn hand-built trail-tuned steel frame
•Aluminum crown suspension fork provides shock-absorbing comfort
•Front and rear alloy linear pull brakes for sure-stopping power
•Shimano 21-speed drive-train with SRAM MRX Pro Grip Shifters for shifting efficiency
•Schwinn quality sport saddle ensures a comfortable ride

or

Comfort Bike:
•21 speeds with SRAM Grip Shift shifters for easy gear changes

(More Specs)
26'' Men's Schwinn Link Comfort Bike:
•Steel frame features upright geometry for a comfortable riding position
•SR Suntour suspension fork smoothes out bumps

Get out of the Wal-Mart, dude! Unless 90+% of your riding is 10-12 mph on the MUP once a week, you need more bike.

Well, I will try to answer your question in a more friendly manner.

Not everyone can afford an expensive bike . I don't know your budget, but neither is a GREAT bike. If you just need to exercise or want some pleasure in an occassional bike ride , they will do. If these are what you are looking for, just pick the one that you feel fits you best & has the most comfortable riding position. Not hardly any difference in them.
WalMart Schwinns seem to be the cheapest Schwinns available. They are USUALLY not assembled well AT ALL. I have known people injured while trying to ride their NEW bike ! I had a friend bring a new assembled WalMart bike to me, & it took me almost an hour to get it in good riding condition. Our local Target store sells Schwinns & they have a guy who takes his time & knows what he is doing .
Another alternative, would be to look at used bikes & take a bike knowledgable friend along to help . Sometimes, you can get a great deal on a good quality used bike for less than you pay at the 2 above mentioned stores for a cheaper quality bike. Or, save a little more cash, & look at other brand name bikes, such as Giant, etc.
Good luck !
