Bought bike for wife for her Birthday 3 weeks ago. She has had 3 back surgeries and needed a low impact form of exercise. This was almost perfect for her. I had to change the hand-grips and add a water bottle holder. She can now ride with me comfortably for 6 miles. She rides it 6 days a week and says its very comfortable. The only con is the bike is a little heavy but its steel frame makes it sturdy.
This is a great mix between a road bike with slick tires and tall frame, and a mountain bike with comfy seat and shocks.
The bike will handle normal use as stated. As sold in the store the bike was not set up correctly for safe use ( gears, brakes etc). I had to take it to a professional bike shop to really be dialed in. I bought this for my girl friend and do not expect it to be the same quality and performance as my Trek dual sport. Keep in mind the Trek was three times the price and I really pound it during my outdoor workouts. A proper set up and tune by the store and I would rate this bike an A+.
I was looking for a comfortable, upright hybrid bike that I could ride on the local paved trails. I am not an experienced rider but like to go for 5-10 miles at a time (max.)
This bike is comfortable with its upright sitting position and its wide, comfy seat. It is easy to ride, wonderful for beginners and VERY PRETTY!!!
My only complaints...the water bottle holder bolts are on the underside of the bar, so you have to stop to get your water. (Note...water bottle not included.) The brake grips are a little hard to reach for me (and I don't think my hands are unusually small) but I'm going to take it in to see if they can be adjusted. All in all, I'm very impressed. Schwinn made a great product and WalMart has a great price.
I am 5'6" and the seat is about 1.5" away from the lowest setting. If you're petite or have short legs, make sure you sit on it first to ensure it will be comfortable fit for you.
Great value for a great bike!
Delivered much quicker than I was expecting. Wow! Assembly not too difficult. Brakes still need some adjusting though. Beautiful blue color. A gift for my daughter - waiting for rain to stop so she can ride it.
I love this bike, but the second time I rode it (on a fairly new, paved bike trail) I got a flat tire. The other problem is that as of June 2013, Wal-Mart doesn't sell 700c replacement inner tubes in the store. You can order them site to store though, so if you buy the bike I recommend ordering the replacement tubes or a patch kit at the time you purchase the bike.
Very deceptive. It is a 29" bike and too big for a 5'2" woman!!! Even with very long legs!!!'
This is a great bike for a fabulous price! I love the color, the style of a hybird, and the feel of the bike. It works for riding to get from place to place or using it for a workout. My ONLY complaint is that the back gears don't go as high as I would like. I actually prefer a little more resistance there. It's a great bike though and would highly recommend it if looking for a functional hybrid.
I bought this bike for my wife who just rides on the road and bike path. It's perfect, I was surprised to see all name brand components (SRAM and Shimano) for this price. Had to make a minor brake adjustment but aside from that it was easy to assemble.
I have only had it a few weeks and have only gotten to ride a handful of times so far, but I have loved it. It is beautiful and rides very nicely. I love the 21 speeds available and the handlebar position is very comfortable. the seat, as with all bike seats will take some getting used to but it is more comfortable than most. good brakes. shifts smoothly. my only slight concern is that it has a few pinpoint rust spots on the handlebars after only a few weeks...so do not store outside unless it is well covered. I know that it will make me want to ride more.
Hello everyone, Jay here. This schwinn is just like my Schwinn urban commuter bike I bought for almost 400.00 just a few years ago. It's well balanced ( easy to ride and turn ) and looks great in baby blue. Yes I'm a guy that's needs a 2nd bike for city-trail riding and this one fits THE BILL well. I'm 5'10" and weigh 235 and it fits me just fine grab these things also before getting to the checkout.(HAVE A CART WITH YOU)
1. A bright or white helmet be be crash proof and be seen by traffic always!!! ( dark colors are a big no-no !)
2 beefy locks 1 long u-shaped for locking the tires and frame on poles and odd areas and a cable lock( 5ft long min) to lock the front wheel to the rear and frame around the same pole or metal object YOU MUST USE BOTH LOCKS TO STOP BIKE SNATCHERS..MAKE IT LOOK TOUGH AND THE TOUGH GO AWAY FAST. lock the tires together and the frame to the object and keep your bike where you left it...
3. DAY and night riders need a bright safety vest to be seen by drivers ( found mine in mens dept and very low price) stuff in pocket when in stores or shopping but wear it on your bike...BE SAFE THAN SORRY.
A lightweight backpack is great too. Keep all your " ROAD RANGER" in it like work lunch, snacks, water, juice,trail mix for healty energy ect. I keep my tablet in it when exploring a new area to find out things and shops nearby, just like a urban columbus.
FInally.. check tire pressure atleast twice a week ( floor tire pump with a gauge works great) .please bring water, healthy snack food and basic tools like a allen wrench, 9/16 and 1/2 open end wrench ( for tires and seat ), long nose plyers ( break adjustment ) and a little patch kit for the tires, and two lightweight nylon shopping bags for treasures you might find along the way . you can ride with piece of mind and very lightweight too but be a scout and be prepared...
ENJOY THE RIDE ON YOUR NEW SCHWINN THIRD AVE HYBRID FROM WAL-MART AND STAY GREEN ON THIS VERY " COOL BLUE " BIKE...RIDE ON AMERICA.. FROM .JAY THAT'S ON HIS WAY
My opinion is that this bike may be made to fit someone a bit taller than myself. I would suggest being at least 5/6 for s a comfortable fit (again, just my opinion). It's built well and rides nice. The gears shift well and the breaks work fine too. I enjoy riding it.
I bought the bike for basic recreational bike path riding and I'm very happy I did. I absolutely Love the look of the bike - the color is slightly lighter than showing in the picture. The bike has performed well thus far - sometimes I have trouble down shifting, but I think I just need to get the hand of it. Great value for the money!
Love the bike!
Bought this for my daughter who lives in Monterey, CA. She rides this bike to and from work 6 days a week. Then rides it to the beach on the weekend. Work is 10 miles one direction. She has had zero problems with the bike. Although her friend put together I had her take it to a bike shop for adjustments etc., money well spent.
Had this item assembled and ready for pick up the same day!
We have already recommended this bike to some of our friends. Easy to assemble. Like the straight handlebars and the easy twisting shifters.
The bike is comfortable, pretty color and rides easily, handlebars are efficient and comfortable. I am pleased overall with my purchase.
