That Target Schwinn isn't terrible, might work out fine. Millions of people buy bikes from Target, Sears, Wal-Mart, etc., and are happy with them.
But I agree that if you spend an extra $20-$50 at a bike shop, that you could get a decidedly nicer bike. Such as a Schwinn Voyager or Trek 7000 or Giant Sedona ST.
I've seen some great deals on closeouts, floor demos, and even end-of-year selloffs of rental bikes.
