Easy to assemble.
Andrew
What was troubling, however, was they found that the crank was bent, so that it would rub against the front derailleur, and not shift properly.
Nick
Looks great, rides great, has great components.

This is my first hybrid bike. It's basically a road bike with a flat handle bar, which was exactly what I was looking for. I had a BMX that was stolen so I decided to purchase this hybrid based on the brand and price. There were no reviews online for this bike to help influence me before I purchased it, that's why I'm submitting my first review. I watched a few videos online on how to assemble a road ride, which was helpful. Assembling the bike was easy, front wheel, handle bar, pedals and seat. Next, I pumped the tires to their correct air pressure and adjusted the seat for a comfortable fit. After that there was nothing else to do other than to give it a test ride. The gears and the brakes were easy to use and they needed no adjustments. The bike is very quite when pedaling. It is light weight and nice to ride. I've owned this Schwinn Volare S5460 for about a month now and so far so good. I purchased a gel seat cover because the seat was paining the nerves out my @ss. The only thing about the gel seat cover is that I don't really like how it looks over the seat. I'm thinking about getting a narrow road bike seat that heard is as comfortable. It's a good looking bike; I like the frame, wheels and the colors. The frame is 18" and the wheels are 700c(very slim). I bought a blue and white multi-sport helmet to match the bike's paint job. I'm 5'7" and the bike fits me good. If you're over 6 feet then you'll need a bigger frame. Four things I recommend you get if you're going to purchase this bike, a comfortable seat, a helmet, a pump w/ an air pressure gauge and a high security lock. I"ll post some pictures.

The short, I love this bike! I have bikes that cost more and to be honest this one works just as good if not better.First off, I love working on mechanical things, so I always get my bikes in a box. I like to know how it works and that it was put together correctly. I also like to use locktite (thread adhesive) on all the bolts to prevent loosening. I have put over 100 miles on this bike in a few weeks and after checking, nothing is loose. The bike rides and handles great, shifting is perfect and I didn't have to touch an adjustment so far, it was setup correctly right out of the box. Tires need to be kept hard, (mine had very little air when I received the box) that means checking the air pressure often as with all bikes. If you leave the pressure low, you could damage the rims and pinch the tubes. The seat is like every other street bike I have owned, thin but well padded. I have tried several Gel seats on my mountain bike and to be honest my butt gets sore no matter what, I have come to the conclusion its just the nature of bike riding which I have been doing for a very long time (My butt gets sore on my Harley). The bikes weight is excellent for this price range, the TIG welding on the aluminum frame is excellent as is the paint. Brakes are very positive with good stopping power for rim brakes and no noise. Brake shoes were adjusted with good rim position and proper toe right out of the box. I checked the rims for run-out (wobble) and they were well within spec. Sorry, I just can't fault a bike like this in this price range even though I tried. BTW, this is my wife's account.

A star for Amazon and VMinnovatons, none for Schwinn.
Got the bike for my wife. I had read something about the wheels/rims, but decided to go ahead due to the good reviews on Amazon. Everybody complains nowadays I thought, my wife is only 120LB., there should not be a problem with the rims/spokes being weak.
The bike came on time, greatly packed, no reason to worry, usual great business form Amazon.
The moment I got behind my wife on the road however, I noticed the chain of the bike swaying left and right when she was not pedaling. Not good.
I got on the bike myself and noticed that at speeds about 6mph all the way till you really speed up to about 16mph, you get a weird, pulsing sensation on the bike and at some point at the handle bar. It seems like the rear wheel is going to collapse, or as if you are going on wavy road.
I have had bikes all my life, this is not the high speed osculation/vibration that some bikes are pron to, it couldn't be cracked fork, bad bearings, or loosely tightened wheels. I checked those.
Took the bike to the local shop in Pasadena, the gentleman tightened the spokes. The ride did not improve.
I returned the bike to VMinnovations, great customer service, and I don't mean them to loose business.
It seems to me that it is a case of bad batch, may be change of supplier/manufacturer of the spokes/rims, who knows what is going on in the pursuit of ever cheaper production and bigger profit.
We wanted to keep the bike and we are 60$ in expense, (shipment), and it doesn't feel right because the bike did not deliver, it is not like we sent it back cause we changed our mind. I have never had problems with bikes made in Taiwan, true they are more expensive. There is more to say but this is not the forum.
Hope you have better luck.
