The Schwinn Protocol 1.0 Men’s Dual-Suspension Mountain Bike with 26 -inch wheels is a superb mountain bike that won’t break the bank like some other expensive, high-profile bikes can.
This bike can take you anywhere you want to go on any type of terrain and give you the smoothest ride possible on the type of terrain you are riding on. The aluminum dual suspension frame with steel rear helps to gives you a smooth enough ride that you can easily control the bike no matter what the terrain is like.
This bike offers 24 speeds thanks to the Shimano EF-50 Trigger Shifters and it is very easy to shift so you don’t break your stride and can adjust to the terrain you’re on. And with the Pro Max front disk brakes, slowing down and stopping is easily accomplished and fairly smooth.
To top it all off, Schwinn included alloy high profile rims with black bladed spokes. Not only do the high profile rims perform well, they look nice too.

We found less than 50 reviews online on the Schwinn Protocol 1.0 Dual-Suspension Mountain Bike but of those reviews we did find, it earned four stars out of a possible five stars with most saying they would recommend it.
Many recommended it saying that it is a good price for what they (pro riders) consider an entry level mountain bike. Whether the reviewers were hard core mountain bikers or just people that like to ride on rough terrain, they all agreed this was one nicely priced bike for what it offered.
Most casual riders say it offers a nice smooth ride even on rough terrain and an exceptionally smooth ride on the road.
The only negatives were from the more hard core riders who said a lot of fine tuning needed to be done to the bike before they were happy with the ride. Some recommended that if you’re not sure what you’re doing you should take it to a professional to have it fine tuned, but even with this negative comment, most of them still recommend this as a good entry level mountain bike.
