Pros: Price, Aluminum can't rust, It's held up well so far I've owned it for a year. After the first year my crank makes terrible noises.

Cons: The seat could be more comfortable, and the gears don't always shift well. The rims don't stay tru, and the brakes suck they don't stay well adjusted and drag all the time.

Recommendation: I'm kind of new to the mtb world, and this was my first mtb. I think it's a piece of garbage can't wait to by another bike.

Pros: I can't complain... My Schwinn Aluminum Comp was *FREE* (my brother-in-law gave it to me). He had it upgraded with a new crank set, a better Shimano derailleur, and new brakes.

I like the lightweight feel of the Aluminum Comp. You can go anywhere on it with ease. It has smooth shifting, quick stopping, and a real nice balance.

Cons: Nothing that I know of. Um, maybe due to it being lightweight aluminum, where you can whip it all around in and out of the trees on a singletrack run, it might not be the best bike to do log jumps and/or insane rock hopping stuff with.

Recommendation: I really like this bike and love the upgrades my brother-in-law had done to it (before he bought his Trek Police Bike). I would buy this from Wally World, then do a few minor upgrades to it when you have the time and money. Long story short: It's a sweet bike for the price!

Pros: Inexpensive, no frills bike. Great for beginning/intermediate rider. Also very durable! Mine has survived for 6 years now, many of which stored outside.

Cons: Grip shifts are not my fave, but they do the job.

Recommendation: I'd buy it again.
