Watch: Jr. National Champ vs $400 Walmart Bike

Best Mountain Bike Under $500?

This time the Mountain Bike Action Crew put our Jr. National Champion up against the all-new Schwinn Axum. At just $398 we were curious how much abuse this bike could handle. Featuring 29er wheels with 2.6” wide tires, an 8-speed drivetrain with 11-40 cassette and 35mm wide rims with alloy double-wall, the Schwinn seemed up for the task. Watch now to see what kind of off-road prowess a sub $400 bike can deliver.
