I hate it when the OP ducks out of a thread. I thought it was his responsibility to keep it up, otherwise it may languish.
What say you Tom?

Tom...? Tom just ducked into this elevator, f@rted, and then slipped back out just as the door was closing.

Tom is just too embarrassed by all the mentality here.

As duo ruote suggested, it is Very Near Entry Level.

My Premis is only entry level if she gets on a stool.

Despite the direction of the thread, I can't resist posting photos of my actual, real life, Schwinn Premis bicycle.

I'd say it's decidedly mid-level, by the way.

I actually really dig the paint scheme and the white components. I usually hate that kind of stuff, but for some reason I like it on the Premis.

I agree 100%. There's something about the Premis that makes it really charming, in an ironic hipster kind of way. I always imagine the Schwinn marketing folks getting a good deal on all the random white parts and trying to come up with the most ridiculous flashy paint scheme to match.

Sounds like a true & loyal friend who would let you know secretly that you had a booger showing or that your fly was down, or perhaps even prevent frat boys from writing on your face with permanent markers if you were passed out drunk the night before your job interview. Seriously, he or she was doing you a profound favor IMO.

So what is top level? Like about 40 inches off the floor?

I've been tempted by this little premis all summer...

I like it so much I even considered getting it for my girlfriend, but I think this premis would be too big. The one she's used to is much smaller.

The seller says this Premis is a wee too small for him.
