You didn't give a rundown on the bikes (like whether the '99 is used and if so how much) and I'm going by what I think I know of their components.

My recollection is that these bikes are VERY similar. Both have compact geometry, both are equipped mostly with Shimano 105, both have straight bladed front forks and al frames so I'd guess (haven't ridden) a similar ride feel.

So, all things being equal, I'd get the brand new Schwinn.

I have a Fastback (limited though), and it is a sweet ride. As mentioned above, even if the Giant were NOS, I'd get the Schwinn as it's a 2001.
