....something I'd get at WalMart/K-Mart/Target?
I'm in the beginning stages of looking for a new bike. I bought my current bike, a Giant Sedona, used back in 2006. Not sure when it was manufactured, but it's beginning to show it's age.
I know that when it comes to buying a new bike, a LBS would be my best option, but I've looked at a few nice bikes at Dick's and also at Sports Authority. I was especially taken with the Edgewood by Diamondback.
From examining it in the store, it seems to be solidly build. It shifted well through all gears, the wheels were true and the brakes seemed like they'd stop the bike pretty quickly. Also, nothing looks like it was put on backwards like I've heard about concerning some discount store bikes.
So, would something like this be a step up from the discount store bikes but still a step below an LBS bike?
Thanks in advance for any comments / suggestions / tips.
