schwinn aluminum comp

Postby redraider » Tue Feb 28, 2017 10:51 am

the new schwinn 29er Boundary is not at arizona walmarts. however i did spot this 27.5 on the rack in case anyone has an interest. i have no details to provide on components or size frame.
wasnt sure if this was best way to alert everyone but took the chance on a new topic.

At first I thought that this looked like an exact copy of the 29" Schwinn Boundary, but in 27.5".

Again, Schwinn is using a disc brake on a welded-lowers fork, which they didn't ever used to do. But here with the smaller wheel size, at least there's less torque being fed into the lower left leg...

They're not saying this one has 2.5" tires, but the Boundary doesn't really ship with that advertised width either. :oops:

I see this one uses a rear V-brake, and the frame looks less fancy, but this might be better than the Boundary for those who aren't as tall, maybe a little lighter too.

Maybe also the price will jump around daily like the Boundary prices did. So maybe it will turn up for $140 or so(?). :D

By the way, isn't this one the very same bike???

The frames very similar to the boundary, *square shaped etc*, it also has a 1 1/8th inch headtube, so dropping a better fork in is easier. Tires are 650b, 2.25'', overall from what I noticed while building 1, it would be a good bike for even trail use with minor upgrades. Am actually getting 1 for my GF when I get the boundary lol.

Schwinn kills me sometimes. This is literally the 4th bike they've called the aluminum comp. Lol. And now it's a 650b. I wonder how it compares to my 26" aluminum comp.

Falkon,its all about what sells and Schwinn knows name recognition is key.For the most part frame shape and size define the IN crowd even with LBS bikes and to me its ridiculous.You happen to possess the ultimate deal frame still with your striking frame whether you realize it or not and there is no company that has even come close to providing that in 2017 that I am aware of.The answer of how it compares to a 26er aluminum comp is easy in that it is faster and rolls over obstacles better but 29ers are better still because none of the bikes are anything but XC based with limited suspension.Can it compete with your striking frame on any mild downhill course,absolutely not.Sorry for rambling. :lol:

So, I bought one of these a few nights ago for the step-son. So far, I like it. The weather has been not so good for riding, but I have it tuned and ready.
More to come on this bike soon!

I like the lines of the Boundary but hate that large Schwinn logo.
Anyone know if the frame is disc-ready in the rear?
