Finding the Right Bike
To really enjoy cycling, it's important to find a bicycle that works for you. Here are some things to keep in mind when you're in the market for a new bike:

The Right Ride
In general, bikes are broken down into three major categories:

  • Road and Racing Bikes--As a general rule, road and racing are built for speed and longer distances on paved surfaces. Thinner tires, lightweight 29-inch (700c) wheels, and drop bars that allow for a more aerodynamic position are the norm. Most road bikes, regardless of price, offer many gears for tackling both hilly and flat terrain.
  • Mountain Bikes--With their larger tires, hill-friendly gearing, and upright position, mountain bikes are very popular for all types of riding, both on pavement and off. Mountain bikes that are designed specifically for rugged trail use typically feature a suspension fork. Some may have rear suspension, as well. A quick change of the tires on any mountain bike--even one that you use regularly on trails--adds to its versatility and makes it a worthy street machine.
  • Comfort/Cruiser Bikes--For tooling around on bike paths, light trails, or for cruising a quiet beach-side lane, comfort/cruiser bikes are the ticket. With a super-relaxed riding position, padded seats, and limited or no gearing, these bikes are made for enjoying the scenery and having fun with the family.

The Right Price
A bike's price boils down to three essentials: frame materials, bike weight, and component quality and durability.

  • Entry-level--You'll find a wide range of comfort and cruiser bikes in this category, as well as some lower-end mountain bikes and road bikes. Most will have steel frames and components that are designed to last for several years with frequent use.
  • Mid-range--Bikes in this range may feature a lighter aluminum frame with mid-range components that keep performing after miles of use. If you're looking for a quality bike that is relatively lightweight and will stand up to abuse, this is the "sweet spot." Most serious commuter and touring bikes fall into this category, as do mid-range mountain bikes with a decent front suspension.
  • High-end--Racers and serious enthusiasts who expect lightweight, high-performance components will want to stick to this category. For road bikes, exotic frame materials (carbon fiber, titanium) and ultralightweight components can add thousands to the price tag. Mountain bikes in this class often feature advanced front and rear suspension technology, as well as components designed to handle lots of rugged trail action.

The Right Size
Fit is crucial for comfort, control, and proper power and endurance on a bike. Here are some basic bike fit tips:

  • Stand-over Height--To find out if a bike's overall height fits your body, measure your inseam. Next, determine how much clearance you'll need between your crotch and the top tube of the bike. For a mountain bike, you'll want three to five inches of clearance. A road bike should offer between one and two inches of clearance, while a commuter bike should have two to four inches. Compare the stand-over height for a given bike to your measurements (inseam + clearance) to determine the right bike height.
  • Top Tube Length--You can measure your torso to get a good estimate of proper top tube length. First, make a fist and extend your arm. Measure from the center of your fist to the end of your collarbone (the part that intersects your shoulder). Next, measure your torso by placing a book against your crotch with the spine facing up. Measure from the spine to the bottom of your throat (the spot between your collarbones). Finally, add the two measurements (arm length + torso length), divide the number in half, and subtract six inches. This is your approximate top tube length. Compare this number to a bike's posted top tube length. You can allow for about two inches longer or shorter, as most bikes can be adjusted via stem length/height and saddle fore/aft position to make fine adjustments to the fit.
  • Bikes for Women--Proportionally, women tend to have a shorter torso and longer legs than men. Bike makers design women's bikes that offer a shorter top tube and many comfort/cruiser bikes built for women may also provide more stand-over clearance.

The Right Accessories
When you make a bike purchase, don't forget these crucial add-ons:

It's very sturdy.

I just cannot adjust the left front brake shoe, it does not have enough gap and hence always touch the rim, you can imagine the ride is not going to be that smooth.
Hua Li
Very sturdy, easy to fold bike is compact enought to fit in the trunk of most small cars or hatchbacks.

I just received it from Amazon last week, set it up immediately, and only took it to the bike store to make sure of everything. It does NOT ride like a toy, as one customer said, but is far more steady than any Dahon I've ridden. It's a bit too heavy for me to lift up, but others may not find that a problem. Once you get the catch open - it's difficult because a lot of pressure is needed, but that's for safety reasons - it folds easily. For a man, this would be easier. An absolute pleasure to have the LOOP AT THE BOTTOM, AND NOT TO HAVE TO PUT MY LEG OVER A HIGHER BAR. The handle bar is fixed and can't be adjusted, but it's fine for me. The seat is adjustable, though. Goes up hills easily. This is far superior to the citizen bikes, in my opinion, with their rickety chain that falls off easily. It is rather larger than appears in the pictures, so look at the specifications carefully. I was surprised that Schwinn put it into such a shabby carton for the trip from China and then to other places before it came to me. All I did was rip the side of the carton open, and the bike slid out (folded, of course.)

As the "3 star" rater said, the bike seems to come damaged in the mail. One of my wheel rims is bent, the bike shop tried to "true" it, but it creates a little wobble when riding. Unfortunately a new wheel is 40-60 dollars.

The BAD:

The actual bike is made and china, and thus has some cheap parts. I've had the bike for about a month, and have foreseen numerous repairs that will eventually have to be made.

The bike also has a cheap gearshift, and even after it being adjusted by bike professionals it still jumps somewhat.

The folding quality is poor in that it will take you a good 10 minutes to fold it up. You also need to buy some bungee cords to hold it together after it folded.

This bike is extremely heavy for a folding bike. At least 40 pounds. Not buy if you will have to carry the bike for long distances.

The paint chips very easily.

THE GOOD:

Brakes (once adjusted) work extremely well. I guess the better make sure you aren't going to die on it.

It rides very smoothly when the gear shifter is working right. Very maneuverable.

The heavy frame is a detriment in carrying it, but comes in handy having a tough frame for a general solid ride. You don't really feel like you are riding a toy bike. It also protects from bends when transporting. It even has a derailer guard to protect it from getting bumped.

The seat it comes with is of extremely good quality as well as the handlebars.

It comes with a carrying bag, cheap but should last a little while at least.

Conclusion...

I paid 215.

I am somewhat of a seasoned cyclist of 60 years and after owning one of these and putting a some miles on it, just had to write a review; I plan to purchase a second one soon for my partner. I was at first concerned about this bike being able to support my 230-240 lb body; I researched it a bit and the specs say it supports 300 lbs, so my weight has not been a problem. This bike rides very well and has low rolling resistance, good tires, great brakes and gears. It gets many looks on the bike trail and is basically a pleasure to own. Owning a PT Cruiser also, it folds readily and there is plenty of room for other cargo, including a second Schwinn Loop, is light weight and easy to lift in and out of the car. I did put a wider more comfortable saddle on it but that is the only change I have needed to make. Its a great traveler. I drive between Palm Springs and Ocean Park WA twice a year and use it to explore the bike trails on the overnight stops. Highly recommend. T. Johnson, Palm Springs, CA.

What a fun little bike this is! It folds well, they were very thoughtful about the placement of everything when folded. It's very sturdy.I compared it to the Dahon, and while that is very slick and expensive this serves the purpose just as well.It does ride like a toy bike but with 20" wheels thats about what you expect. My range on it is about 10 miles round trip. That's about as far as i'm willing to go. More than that and you'd want a big bike. But it is perfect for city shopping and upstairs apartment living. I would buy it again.
Oh, you do want to take it to the bike shop for a tune up and adjustments beofre you ride it, though. I hear that's normal for all online bikes. The bike shops tune and adjust for you if you buy from them. Add that to the cost when thinking about prices.

I am a college student and desperately wanted a folding bike that would fit in my little car and would comfortably take me around campus. Of course my budget could not afford a Dahon (which is a fine bike!) so I opted for the Schwinn... I love it! I've had it for months now and I ride it every day around campus, it makes my life so much easier! It does not ride like a toy (ok, it is a little heavier than the more expensive Dahons and Boardwalks, but therefore is also very sturdy) and fits perfectly in my trunk (I own an old corolla). Cool kids kinda laugh at me when they see me pull up behind my car on my folding bike, but as soon as I fold it, lift it and pull it in my trunk, all in under 3 mins, they looked amazed and several people had already asked me where they can get their own (I still don't understand how someone needs 10 mins to fold/unfold this bike!! I do it under snow and in my office clothes hehehehe).

If you have a modest budget this is the bike to go. Might need some adjustment at the bike shop, but the bike is just too much fun to ride :)
