This is by far the best road bike i have ever ridden for $250. I have owned the infamous GMC denali bike, and this schwinn blows it out of the water. I swear this bicycle feels like its under 20 lbs. Its SO light weight next to the other road bikes walmart carries. The shifters shift fine after adjustment. You WILL have to adjust the high and low screws before you hop on for a long ride. The back brake came PERFECTLY adjusted, the front break just needed a squeeze with a tightening of cable tension and its good. If you want a perfectly adjusted derailleur you may need to take it to a shop, which im debating to do or not. I'm 5'11, 200+ pounds and it fits my legs fine with proper raising of the saddle. If 6 you're any taller than 6 feet, you may feel slightly uncomfortable. I like these style shifters VS the twisty shifters on the GMC denali. I actually Love the saddle, it feels perfectly padded without going overboard. The front wheel is a quick release, which is very convient for transporting in my car. This bike comes with pedal cages, reflectors, but not a water bottle cage. You can order a schwinn water bottle+ cage and it will fit perfectly. Its a sharp looking bike. VERY impressed with it, especially how light it is for being under $300. If you're around 6 feet tall and looking for a legit road bike, get this. Pay the extra 90 bucks over the GMC denali.
