I got this bike a week ago and have been riding it about every day since. Was unsure of the purchase since there is almost no information or reviews on it yet but decided to give it a go anyways because it just looked and felt so slick sitting in the store. I am not too fond of the price given that for $250 I could have probably got a lot better used bike, but because of the circumstances and also the convenience of buying this bike right at my local Walmart I decided to go with it. At first I was discouraged with the handlebars being so low since I am used to comfort bikes where I sit mostly upright, but after adjusting the handlebars and gear shifters so that they were at a slight angle and the saddle so that it was at the lowest setting I felt quite comfortable. Keep in mind this is a road bike for long distant fast paced riding. This is not a comfort style bike for casual around the block riding. In other words your body will be more aerodynamic and sloped over with this bike, not upright and casual. Anyone who has rode the old Varsity bikes made in the 70s should know what I am talking about. However there is no reason this bike can't be used for around the block riding, but it really shines when on long stretches of road where you can get some speed. The handlebars worried me a bit when slamming the front brake it felt like the whole upper fork tube would feel loose and make a clunk sound. After loosening the two handlebar bolts and tightening the middle bolt until really stiff, then re-tightening the two bolts holding the flat handlebar I was able to get the bearings compressed enough so not to make the whole fork feel loose in the bikes frame. This was the fault of the person who put the bike together at Walmart, go figure. Other than this everything else was good to go. The white seat leaves a little to be desired in comfort but is just fine for my use. Overall quality of the whole bike is excellent for the price. I doubt you will find another new hybrid road-bike of this quality for the price. It rides like a feather at 25lbs (not mentioned anywhere that I could find, I weighed the bike myself on a scale) and really flies on long flat surfaces. Easy to pedal up hills with little effort. The frame is stiff as there is no suspension shocks, but that is one of the main reasons I got this bike since I don't care for them. Just make sure to beware of potholes on the road and rough terrain, this bike is not made for that, it's made for racing and local commuting on the road. On a final note if you have the extra cash and aren't too familiar with how to tuneup the new bike I highly suggest taking it right away to a shop to make sure everything is tuned to peek performance since most of the bikes at Walmart that are put together in store are almost always put together quickly with little attention to quality. Make sure the spokes are the right tension, too little and the rim could get ruined, too much and you could pop a spoke. I weigh 270lb, 6'6" height which is right at the max this bike can handle, and it still feels solid and rides great!

I love this bike I ride 15 miles a day back and forth from work.Gears are smooth brakes are simple promax v brakes that stop nicely.This bike is by far the lightest bike i have ever owned.The only downside would be that you feel every litte bump or ridge in the road but im pretty sure thats all road bikes.

I am a novice bike rider. Need a bike for commuting. Haven't rode since in high school. Did my research. I have rode this bike for about a month. This bike is the same as the Target Tourist or the Sears Volare. Just different color and different name and slightly cheaper. You can find it on the Schwinn website. Pros: Good value, super light, brakes well, looks nice, good road bike for commuting Cons: Seats are hard, tires & tubes prob. need to be changed, gears and pedal rims are plastic and cheap. Assembly was very straightforward, however, if you assemble yourself or buy it assembled, you should take it to a local bike shop to get it tuned. You need to inflate the bike tires once you purchase it, adjust the handle bars/gear position to your liking, adjust the seating, and test the gears. I am 5'8" and it fits me well. Any bigger and the bike will be too big. This is my 1st road bike. The tires are extremely thin so you feel every pebble on the street. However, it does cruise and can go fast. If you want a fast bike and don't mind the bumps then this is the bike to get. If you want a little more comfort and ruggedness, I would opt for a hybrid. Overall, I am very satisfied with this bike. It gets the job done from point A to point B and I didn't spend a fortune and don't have to worry as much when I lock it up.

I have this bike for about 2 months now and I love it. It's about 25 pounds,fast, and did I say very light bike.. It's a very good beginners bike. I have not have any problems with it besides the front tire getting flat, but that's easily fix.. If you can't afford those $500-$1,000 bike then I recommend you try this road bike out and see if you like it..

For $249 its awesome, buy a helmet and don't be afraid to jack up the seat. I ordered this 2 weeks ago, got it in 4 days 97 cents shipping, packaged Box-in-a-box (no damage). I wanted to put it together not a Walmart subcontractor. Everything bagged, tagged, and protected during shipping, assembly was easy with only 1 allen wrench (not supplied). This bike is light, fast, smooth, shifting is awesome with marked levers not twist handles, tire pressure too high to pump manually, had to go to Hess. Beautiful, I am really happy with my purchase still 2 weeks later. Get a good lock, some lights, and a Foul Weather Fender so TS Debby doesn't ruin your ride....lol.

  • A. I am 5'8" and any bigger it will be too big. If you are 5'10" then it should fit you well. Test the bike if you can at Target or Sears. Read my post. They are the same bike and should be the same size.

  • A. I'm also 5'10 with a solid 36" inseam. I sat on this bike this very afternoon. With the seat in the lowest position, I can only put a flat foot down when I lean the bike to one side, Otherwise I'm on my toes. A first for me! HOWEVER, I LOVE that I can get almost full leg extension at the bottom of the stroke. Very comfortable! The frame is a great compromise between the lightweight body of a roadbike and the strength of a mountain bike. At slower speeds, the narrow slick road tires make the bike a little"wobbly" to control, but get just a little speed and this bike handles like a dream. The Shimano gears system is SCHWEEET to shift, once you get the hang of it. I'm hard on the gears, so I hope the Shimano system can withstand my abuse... I hear it can %^ D I love the 700c aluminum rims, slim, but tough, but I do wish the bike came with the deeper tread of the hybrid tires-this will be my first - and likely only upgrade.
