I have that Fuji, it is a nice, well-built bike. I took off the suicide brake levers and put on a flat bar for my brother in law, he loves it. I paid $20 for it but I think that, with my brother in law in mind, it is definitely worth $75. Fenders are going on it soon for the winter.

the Fuji is OK for a basic bike, I think it is a Pulsar or something like that, but mostly I think they are over priced

I think it's funny the Schwinn is priced the highest priced of the three, and so much higher. The Fuji is the best deal, but still just a basic lower-end bike. I'd pass on all of them. Especially the Schwinn at $300, it's maybe worth half that.
