    Schwinn Mesa GS or Forge 5xx?


    I'm just getting into mountain biking and I've decided to spend around $300 dollars on a beginner mountain bike. I'm 5'8 and 145 lbs. I won't be doing any kind of riding that is too aggressive..just light xc trails so I've narrowed it down to either the 2006 Schwinn Mesa at a LBS or the Forge 5xx online through

    It seems like the Forge has better components and is a bigger bang for the buck but I wouldn't get to try it out before I buy it and also I wouldn't get free lifetime adjustments from my LBS. Hmm..

    You can get a 2005 GSD or 2006 LTD for 320-350 dollars respectively.

    Try out the mesa in your lbs and order the mesa online instead.
