What are y'all thoughts about the Trek FX 1?
It's overpriced in my opinion. The Mongoose I posted or the Anasazi (https://www.dickssportinggoods.com/p...nshknsz15xxdsb) with disc brakes are better. Everything on that bike is low end like the Mongoose - the Anasazi has a better drive train along with the disc brakes. This Schwinn is specced like the FX with a similar low-end drive train but has disc brakes for only $299: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Schwinn-K...e-red/55376960.

On the low-end, the big brand bikes aren't worth it at all, a bike with rim brakes and a 7-speed is very low end. The FX1 disc is a better option with its 8-speed drive train but still a bit overpriced compared to the newer Walmart bikes. But yeah if you want to support your local bike store the trek FX1 disc is a decent bike! (my choice would be the Nishiki if you can get it on sale, I got one for a friend for $350 on sale).
