The bike shop wanted $350 for their cheapest bike: a Taiwanese-made mountain bike with fewer features and a crappy grip-shift. Sometimes it's better to buy the most expensive bike at Target than the cheapest one at the bike shop.

Ask me again in a few years, but I bet I'll still recommend a Schwinn for your mom.
True. But at your bike shop the bikes are assembled by a mechanic, I'm not sure who assembles bikes at target. And alot of bike shop offer at least a free first tune-up, mine gave me lifetime.

FYI I ride a Schwinn Fastback, best bang for buck entry bike, IMO.
