I have 2 other bikes in my house. A Giant hybrid bike with a basket for shopping and carrying class materials (I'm a teacher), and an old Fuji road bike that I have rebuilt. The Fuji road bike was great to ride but like most projects it was a hassle to replace parts and find parts that fit. I ordered this bike to be my solid nightly rider around town and I wrote this review to show how pleasantly surprised I am. The bike feels solid and lightweight. The package came quickly with Amazon's 1 day delivery option for $3.99, and the assembly was simple. The handlebars are not huge but actually the perfect size. Some reviews from other sites use the stock photo of this bike and make judgments, when in reality the bike is beautiful and clean. The stickers on the wheels come off easily and although the Schwinn logo is present, it seems to be done in good taste. If you look at their site you can see that Schwinn seems to be heading in the right direction by including more high performance / low maintenance single speed road bikes.

I had to call customer service today because one of my crank-arm's threading was done incorrectly and my pedal ended up shredding out all the threading. If you are a cyclist you have probably ran into this problem before and know that this can be an expensive fix. Luckily, a 5 minute phone call to customer service was all I needed to do to get a package on the way to my house with a entirely new crank-arm assembly kit and pedals. I couldn't be happier with this purchase. If you are on the fence with this, don't be. This bike has quality that is well worth its price, add to that the fact that it is built by a company that stands by their products and the bike's value far exceeds its price tag. Don't be like me and tell yourself "But its a Schwinn...gross" to keep you from buying this product, because now I ride the bike daily and tell myself "It's a Schwinn!"

Had the bike a week and a half now and thought it was time for feedback. Assembly was easy and the bike looks great, but some of the parts are really cheaply made. Given the price, this wasn't unexpected.
The biggest problem has been getting flats. So far, I have had 6 flat tires! After fixing them multiple times, buying 2 new tubes and patching the rest, I discovered that the problem was with the wheel rim strips. These are the rubber pieces that go around the wheel and keep the tubes from going up into the spoke holes when inflated. It seems that the original part supplied by the manufacturer is simply too thin to do the job at the recommended tire pressure of 100psi stamped on the tires. Replacing the original parts with velox(sp?) rim tape from my local bike store seems to have done the trick. Hopefully, this problem will be addressed soon and others will not have similar issues.

Well, this will be a long review, so let me divide it up into sections.

Packaging: The bike arrived in a long Schwinn box with everything assembled except for the front tire, pedals, and handlebars. The packaging was well designed and protected the structure and finish of the bike well. After minor construction, the bike was assembled. After a bit of adjusting, I had the brakes interfacing properly with the rims. I removed the kickstand, pedal loops, and wheel reflectors without much trouble.

NOTE: The bike arrives without a fixed gear. You might be able to get one from calling Schwinn, but Amazon only advertises the bike with a flip-flop *hub*, not a fixed gear already installed.

Construction: The bike weighs around 20 pounds, or so. To me and my friends, that feels incredibly light for what I paid. The bullhorn bars are very comfortable, and provide adequate ability to turn in all positions, though braking is only possible from the bar end position. I only end up putting my hands in close when I am chugging up a hill. The rims and tires feel very sturdy, as do all of the components. It is a very comfortable bike, but I assume that from the geometry of the bike, anyone less than my height would have difficulty standing over the bike (I am 5'10"). The bolt-down wheels and seat post are a plus for me, as I am constantly locking my bike up outside, and I will be the only rider. The brake levers feel very comfortable, but it seems like it takes a bit of burning in before the brakes catch like they are supposed to. The pedals are fine, but I will discuss that later. The chain is actually quite nice, and after a little bit of riding, the oil emanates from the inner parts of the chain, leaving it nicely lubricated.

I just received this bike two days ago, and so far I can say that for the money, this is a high-quality single-speed. Overall the construction seems solid, and I was lucky that the fit was just right (I'm just under 6'1" and I sit almost perfectly on this model) As a previous review stated, the tires will probably need replacing before too long, as they don't feel too sturdy. I already replaced the saddle so I can have some comfort in my ride (my tailbone is a bit wide for the packaged saddle). I own two other single-speed bikes, and this one is going to be my commuter bike for work (only a few minor hills; close to home). I'll update this review later with my experience(s) riding this bike.

Update: I put some PanaRacer RiBMo tires and thorn-resistant tubes on the bike and ride it for fun/fitness purposes (car drivers on my commute to work are crazy; several people have been maimed/killed recently, so I'm not using it for a commuter). I replaced the stock saddle outright with a PlanetBike comfort saddle, and it's been great. I really can't complain about this bike, it's been a great addition to my stable and it's surprisingly sturdy in construction/components for the price. I'll be replacing two part sets soon: The freewheel is fine, but I have a MUCH quieter Shimano that will do the trick with less noise (thankfully the horizontal dropouts make it easy to put just about any size freewheel on it without changing out the chain), and the brake levers are going to be replaced with some Cane Creek levers purchased mid-last year. Overall, this is a great value...it's the one bullhorn-style bike I have, and I expect it will last for years to come.
