29er Wheels, Hydraulic Brakes: Is the $299 Schwinn Santis Walmart’s ‘Breakout’ Bike?

It won’t survive the expert runs, but this $300 Walmart mountain bike hits a lot of buzzwords for a box store offering. Can it possibly be any good?

Three-hundred bucks won’t buy much on a proper mountain bike. But Walmart’s $299 Schwinn Santis still manages to offer up a suspension fork, 29-inch wheels, and hydraulic disc brakes.

That looks good on the sticker, but just how much bike can you really get for $299? Watch — and listen — to the maiden voyage of the Santis on trail.
