Post Anybody on a 4 banger?

I just wanted to see if anybody here is on a Schwinn 4 banger. I wanted to see how much people like them and what improvements they have made.

The shock upgrade is well worth it (Stratos Helix expert) that bike really needs it the travle is too linear and bottoms way to easy without the Stratos. The stratos has air compression adjustment an make the bike work really well. Wach buying Schwinn though they were just bought by Pacific cycles (walmart bikes). <IMG SRC="smilies/mad.gif" border="0">

The new owner seems pretty interested in making changes for the better. I was talking to a buddy who is a rep for Schwinn, and he said at the Vegas show they got the new line together and asked for everybodies input. The next day half the line was gone and all the changes the reps asked for were done, within reason.
2002 might be a bad year because of the transition, but the future looks to be promising.
