This past summer I decided to get a “Schwinn GTX 3 Hybrid“. It’s a hybrid, half bike made for speed half mountain bike. I walked into Sports Authority, road the bike in the store for about 5 minutes, paid for it then rode out.

I wasn’t planning on getting a bike. I actually stepped inside to get some more running gear. But the Schwinn called me. And it said, “Ride Me Fast”.

One day I rode 26 miles floating down the back roads and through the highways. Sometimes I would ride it in my running gear, hop off and start running.

I think some runners and trail runners got a little upset that they saw me biking all of the time. But I eventually returned the bike because I saw someone with the same one. And the fact that I was being stalked on it.

But the “Schwinn GTX 3 Hybrid” is definitely built to last. I’ll get another one next spring. It kept me in shape all summer long. Costing at about $400, the “Schwinn GTX 3 Hybrid” is beyond a shadow of a doubt, the bike of champions.
