Product Description

Amazon.com

Whether you're commuting to work or cruising around town, the Schwinn Crest urban women'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.

Very easy to put together.
Swapna
Most of our riding is on pavement, but we have ridden on some gravel/dirt roads, and the "Hybrid" tires performed well.
Gary D. Fitzgerald
The guy said it was a very good bike, with really nice components.

This bike is a perfect combination of features:

-substantial wheels stand up to cracks and dips in the road
-adjustable handlebars allow for a more or less upright riding position (I love to cruise with a tall straight spine... hate hunching my back on other bikes)
-shocks on the front wheel and under the seat make for a smooth ride despite potholes
-wide comfortable seat doesn't dig in to the wrong "parts"; instead, there's some nice padding under the sit bones
-plastic guard protects pants from getting caught in the chains

I've been riding my new bike to work every day through the city, where I encounter all sorts of conditions; the bike gets me through them all pretty comfortably. Pedaling up hills has never been easier and I don't even have to stand. The brakes are responsive and smooth. This is a hardcore comfort bike.

Con:
1. weight slightly on heavy side. close to ~40lbs. so going up hill might be little bit challenging.
2. Grip shift is OK but prefer trigger shifter "Schwinn Broadway" has that feature [...]. Faster gear shift with trigger shift.
3. Minor thing but unlike Giant, Kenda tire does not provide "self sealing tube"
4. Water cage position of the bike is too low (awkward position). Instead get a water bladder back pack.

Pro:
1. Good components overall.
2. Comfortable..front shocks and seat shock are mediocre.
3. Good pedals (metallic vs. cheap plastics)
4. Fenders keeping from dirt and other element is good and so is carrying cage.
5. Does come with kick stand

Overall relative good buy but I wouldn't pay more than $300.00 for this bike. Wait until it gets $250 or lower.
Assembly wasn't hard...it took 30 minutes. Didn't even have to read the instruction...well packaged. Allen wrench is all you need.

I am so happy with this bike. The only thing to irked me is it is now $50 less than what I paid for it. But what can I say, I still like this bike. I was a little challenged when I realized there was partial assembly required. I would have liked more directions on putting on the front tire. Once assesmbled I took it to a bike mechanic and had the assembly work checked over and he told me it was all good. I like that the bike as a rear fender rack, I like that it has fenders both front and back. The seat is so comfortable LADIES this is the bike seat for us. I am still getting down shifting, but any problems I have with shifting is about me and not this bike. The handle bar shifters work well. But I can see that sometime in the future I will have thumb shifters installed (this is for the ergonomics of it for me as I am an older bike rider). If you are looking for a versatile bike that can do some urban trail riding and just get you around the neighborhood. Then you will like this bike.

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 on the men's version, 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 looked at bikes at several local bike shops but couldn't really tell from riding why I should spend an additional $200.00 or more on another brand. This one has everything (and more) that I wanted. Shock absorbers in the comfortable seat and handlebars, gear shifters, a more upright sitting position...a nice ride for taking in the scenery or getting a good workout. Thanks to other reviewers, I knew I couldn't go wrong ordering this online. My husband is handy so assembling it didn't take too long. I love this bike! *****UPDATE 9/29/2010: MY GARAGE KEPT BIKE HAS RUST ALL OVER IT. THIS PAST JUNE WAS LAST TIME I RODE IT. TOOK IT OUT TODAY AND NOTICED RUST ALL OVER IT. WE HAVE 4 BIKES IN OUR GARAGE (ONE OF WHICH IS MY HUSBAND'S 28 YEAR OLD SCHWINN TEN SPEED) AND THIS IS THE ONLY ONE THAT HAS RUSTED. AM GOING TO CONTACT SCHWINN FOR REPLACEMENT. WILL UPDATE AGAIN LATER.*****

****update May 2012 - Schwinn replaced my bike after contacting them about the rust! I had to send back the rusted one, but they did send me a brand new one.....its been two years and still looks great and I still love my bike!
