offers 27.5" Schwinn Men's Approach Mountain Bike, Grey/Green
(reg. $199.99) with free shipping.
The Approach is a mountain bike with an alloy frame and a Schwinn front suspension fork. It is what many would call a "hard-tail" mountain bike. This makes the bike perfect for riders that like the mountain bike look of the knobbier tires, but also like the idea of occasionally leaving the trails and riding to campus or on the bike path. The Approach has the heart of a hybrid, since it will fit in almost anywhere. If you want to hang out with your pals and hit some dirt along the way, or if you just need some extra traction to break a sweat on the gravel bike path, the approach has you covered. The Approach has 21 speeds with Shimano shifters and a Shimano TX-35 rear derailleur, so the shifting won't let you down. There is a rust-resistant alloy crank and rims to keep the weight down. Another plus is the quick-release, easy-to-adjust seat post height. Without tools you can lower the seat for some fierce downhills and then raise it when you need a more efficiency.
