Product Description

Amazon.com

Whether you're commuting to work or cruising around town, the Schwinn Crest urban men's hybrid bike offers a comfortably smooth ride. The Crest is outfitted with a 17-inch aluminum hybrid frame and an SR Suntour front suspension fork, helping the bike hold up to shocks from bumpy or rough terrain. The Shimano TX-31 rear derailleur and SRAM 21-speed grip shifters, meanwhile, give you a host of gear options for flat or hilly rides. And riders will love the 700cc rims and 700 x 38c hybrid tires, which are thinner than mountain bike tires but sturdier than most road bike options. Other features include an SR Suntour front derailleur, an alloy adjustable stem with a 30mm rise comfort bar, and alloy linear pull brakes.

The bike is of good design and the frame is well built.

I then took it to a bike shop for a "tune up", making sure I didn't mess up anything serious and fixing a couple of things I couldn't get right.

Most of our riding is on pavement, but we have ridden on some gravel/dirt roads, and the "Hybrid" tires performed well.

I purchased this Schwinn partly because they seem to have maintained a long-standing reputation for quality and also because I loved mine when I was younger. I primarily wanted a relatively lightweight , solidly built frame and this bike has it. The 700c wheels seems rather popular for hybrid bikes and have been well -received by many commuters. This wheel does not have nearly as much drag as a mtb tire and more protection and gripping power than a thin road bike tire.

The bike comes nearly fully assembled and is well packaged, inside an inner and outer protective carton. Setting up the handlebars, pedals and seat were a snap.

The whole process took about 15 minutes.

The frame is painted a very nice black (So I'm told, It actually looks dark green to my eyes), though it isn't the same frame seen in the product photo (The down tube is much thicker on the bike I received). The saddle is very, very comfortable and the adjustable sprung aluminum stem is a nice bonus, accommodating a variety of preferred sitting/riding styles.

Braking is very even and responsive with little fade. The bike feels well balanced while maneuvering and provides very forgiving handling characteristics. The front suspension fork is lightweight and mostly responsive on the rebound. IMO, it needs a bit more pressure but I've yet to get to it. I'd recommend experimenting with the proper pressure based on your weight and riding style.

The cables are well protected and insulated from the frame to avoid scratches. The fenders and baskets are easily removed, should you choose to do so (I did. It took about 12 minutes because you need to remove the rear tire to get at a screw for the rear fender).

My wife and I decided to purchase bikes to expand our exercise options. Neither of us had ridden in decades, but our son is an avid cyclist and he suggested we look at Hybrids. After looking at several options, we decided to purchase both a Men's and Women's version of this bike and we couldn't be happier. They're relatively lightweight and the components all appear to be of fairly high quality for a bike priced in this range.

The limited assembly was easy, although I must say the 1st one took me longer than the 15 minutes referenced by the original reviewer. Almost everything is adjustable for comfort, and like the original reviewer, we too took off the fenders and like the result. It would have been nice if Schwinn had included a couple of allen wrenches, and maybe a pouch to carry them in, since that is the tool most often needed for assembly and adjustments.

We have been riding for a couple of weeks now and really like the way the bikes handle. I'm a big guy, well over 200lbs, yet the ride is smooth and comfortable. We are amazed at how those gears smooth out the hills. Most of our riding is on pavement, but we have ridden on some gravel/dirt roads, and the "Hybrid" tires performed well.

My wife and I agree that this is definitely a great bike for the price.

I struggled with giving 2 or 3 stars. This is not a premium bike, but we just needed a casual around town ride. We wanted fenders and racks, but with enough gearing to make hills easy. The bike delivers on all of that, but there is a HORRIBLE mismatch of wheels and tubes. Everyone of our rides has ended with a flat, sometimes two. LBS mechanic confirms that the wheels/tires/tubes are mismatched. That, and the proper sized tube is difficult to find. Pacific Bikes, the actual manufacturer, is sending replacements. But if the design is the same, the problem will likely persist. Buy this bike only if you have room left in the budget to retrofit decent wheels in a standard size.

I've been using this bike daily for a month. Commuting about 6 miles every day to and from work.

The first time the bike came, the back tire went flat after < a mile. I didn't bother to patch it. I ordered a new one and returned the defective one to Amazon.

The second one lasted until last week when the front tire went flat. I decided to replace it. Googling for 700 x 38c tires conversion table, I found that I need a 27'' tube and I bought a Schwinn tube from Amazon. When I was replacing the tires, I realized the old tubes were actually 26'' tubes from comparison with the 27'' tube I bought. Hmm..I'm thinking that's why the original tubes don't last at all since they are an inch smaller.

The bike is of good design and the frame is well built. I love this bike. I'm giving it one star less cause of the tube mix up. These days, given that everything is designed in U.S but made in China, manufacturing slips like this is common. However that's no excuse for Schwinn. From all the cost savings they've gained in moving the manufacturing to China, they should at least hire someone to oversee the build quality, or at least do random sampling of the finished goods.

Here's the short and sweet. I spent nearly a year researching bikes - it was my first bike so I did not want to invest a couple grand nor did I want to spend something on the cheap that I would regret buying down the road. I didn't want a mountain bike but I didn't want a "racer" either. This hybrid fit the bill. It's rugged yet agile enough for the road. I wanted fenders - I don't like water water splashed up my back . . . - just a quirk - you can leave them off if you want. I researched the comments by people that bought this bike which was my prime reason for purchasing this bike. Read their comments and you won't go wrong or won't regret buying this bike.

If you are under 6 foot, this bike is built for you. Why? Look at the cross member angle and location on the bike compared to other bikes. It cants downward so that the seat sits lower on the bike frame - which also allows you to sit upright on the bike and now bent over to hold the handlebars as much if the cross member was higher. Somebody that is a pro-rider might offer a different opinion on this - but as a beginner - you are going to appreciate the comfort. If you are taller e.g. 6 foot and up, the bike seat will adjust to accommodate you guys also.

Two common themes ran through each of the comments 1) If you have never assembled a bike before - or if you are mechanically challenged, you will be CHALLENGED putting this bike together - but here is the deal. Go to the Schwinn web-site and search for bike assembly and you find a great video how to put the bike together. You can also google the make and model and you will find it there also. You will find it's really a no brainer - and sort of fun. From the box to complete assemble it took me a little more than 2 hours.
