Brakes are promax and they work well.

Having taken the bike for a few test rides I feel that I was able to achieve a reasonably good fit.

Shift is instant, smooth, quiet, and generally very responsive.

23.2 lbs fully assembled
Front crankset is 50-34
Rear cassette is a 9 speed Shimano Sora 11-13-15-17-18-19-21-24-28. The listing says 7 speed which is incorrect.

I was very happy to see 11 as the minimum. Most bikes seem to have a 12 as a minimum, as the general consensus has 11 placed only for the pros. I have a hard time understanding that philosophy.

Front forks and rear triangle are indeed carbon fiber. This bike is very smooth to ride, probably around 50-75% reduction in road vibration compared to an all-aluminum setup. Even larger bumps are significantly dampened, not just the high-frequency pavement noise. If you've ridden on paint stripes on the road, it's similar to that. Or another way to put it, it was dark outside when I took my first ride and I thought the tires had lost air but when I checked them they were still at the full 125 psi.

I plan to update performance when I have more data. Thus far on a ride around the neighborhood with this bike vs my 30-year-old Cannondale yielded 17.7 and 16.4 mph average, respectively, riding at similar heart rates of 146 and 144.

Assembly was a bit pain in the butt. It took around 3 hours. Instructions were written as if way more was preassembled. The frame had the rear wheel on it, but the handlebar stem, handlebars, front brakes, front wheel, seat, and pedals all had to be put on. The back tire would not take air. Upon taking the tube out I found 2 holes. Fortunately I had a spare tube for the 700c x 23 tires. The stem is a bit short for this wheel type but I got it to work. The wheel itself has very tall walls making it difficult to get the tire off and on.

Front brake cable was way too long and I had to buy a cable clippers from Home Depot to cut the excess.

I have had this bike for about 5 months now, the bike frame is very good (aluminum/carbon fiber forks) but the shifting componenets are not good at all, causing most of the problems... so, I would recommend this bike if you are thinking of having a good decent frame but are thinking -or would like to- upgrade the saddle, shifting components (cassette, chainrings (here is where I have had most of the problems since the material they are made of is super flexible and will bend just 'cause it feels like it, making the chain slip out of it, this happens on 40% of my rides) and front derailleur, etc) and maybe even the handlebar.
I have had a lot of fun with this bike and I have put about 2000 miles on it already, I crushed head onto a Benz SUV that cut me off and stoped suddenly and the front wheel did not budge anything and taking into consideration that I was going at least about 20 miles per hour I can honestly say I was more than expecting the wheel to get damaged (to bend like an 8). I have ridden this bike everywhere in Manhattan to around South Florida and I am very pleased with it, just take care of replacing the chainrings for something good and you'll be riding in peace...

DELIVERY, PACKAGING, and ASSEMBLY

The Schwinn RS 5.0 Road Bicycle arrived on time, was double-boxed and well packaged to ensure a damage free delivery. Assembly, tuning, and fitting took me about 4 hours with great attention paid to detail. The required assembly includes installation of the front wheel and front brake caliper. You will want to adjust the break pads as well- both forward and aft- to ensure proper positioning/contact on the rim. Required assembly also includes installation of the stem, handlebars, and seat post (the saddle comes pre-mounted on the post). Upon the advice of others who purchased this bike and were good enough to leave helpful reviews, I immediately replaced the cheap, thin rubber rim liners with better quality cloth 700c 16mm rim tape at a cost of $10. The wheel mounted reflectors that came with the bike were large and very unflattering - I chose to remove them, but please keep safety in mind if you intend to ride at night.

FITTING

I am a male, 5'6" tall with a 30" inseam. I found the medium frame (see SPECIFICATIONS below for detailed frame measurements) to be just a bit tall for my inseam measurement with barely enough clearance of the top tube with both feet flat on the ground. Ideal fitting to my anatomy required positioning the saddle nearly as far forward as possible on the seat rails and lowering the seat post to just a bit above the top of the seat tube (about 1/2" higher than the lowest possible saddle height). I chose to reverse the handlebar stem to reduce the reach to, and slightly raise the height of, the handlebars as much as possible.

I got this bike about a month ago and rode it just a couple of times because the weather hasn't been the best for riding. It looks nice, and its very light , the carbon fork and back part makes the ride smooth . It had a couple of things that needed to be replaced like the front tube that had a big hole before I touch the street and the plastic safety piece that is between the cassette and spokes that was moving and making a loud noise when riding. After those two things were replaced I have had no other problems bud no enough miles yet either to be able to recommend it to everyone
