Bicycle Buying Guide
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 ultra-lightweight 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:

  • Helmet (this is a must!)
  • Seat pack
  • Lock
  • Hydration pack, or water bottles and bottle cages
  • Spare tubes
  • Portable bike pump
  • Gloves

It's been about a month since I purchased my Schwinn Coronado and I'm loving it. Due to the high price of gas I'm now riding my new Schwinn Coronado 14 miles back and forth to work on a light gravel bike trail (It's also very comfortable road performing bike). The bike was delivered to me packaged with care and with a total cost of less than $240 for the bike (which included the free shipping) how can you go wrong. So far, so good... I'm a happy Amazon / Schwinn customer.

I found the bike easy to assemble, although the instructions were generic to various Schwinns. I had to provide the Allen wrenches necessary for the assembly. The brakes needed adjusting, but I was able to do that myself without much trouble at all. An attractive, comfortable bike that is a good weight and has handlebars that allow for a little more upright riding, more comfortable for the back. Only complaint is the comfort seat, which is not as comfy as the one on my husband's Schwinn.

I ordered the bike on Monday and requested the next day shipping offer, which stated the bike would arrive on Tuesday. It did not. It did come the next day. My husband was out of town, so I set out assemble it by myself. (I am an older lady with no special experience in assembling bicycles.) The bicycle appeared to be in good shape, no bent or scratched items and all the parts were there. However, the white reflector for the front and the red reflector for the back had already been attached and the attachments for both were broken. What took the longest was my digging through my husband's tool box trying to find something that would work since he did not have an allen wrench the right size. The instructions were written for a multitude of bicycles. It was a little confusing which instructions that I should use. It would have been helpful if they had included a sheet on my bike, just saying "This is the bike you have, this is what it has. When assembing the handle bars refer to Handle bar Instructions #1 B. When assembing the front wheel refer to Front Wheel Assembley instructions #3 A, etc." In reality you get an instruction book that says "To assemble the handle bars, do steps 1, 2 and 3. Just as you are processing those instructions, the next line reads "Some models have a so-in-so, in which case you have to do this-and-that." Which makes you have to evaluate your bike to determine just what you have and which instructions to use. This was the case with the handle bars, the seat, and the front wheel. At any rate, after getting it unpacked I was making my first trip arownd the yard in about and hour and a half. It seems very comfortable and was very easy to pedal, even accross the grass. It should be a breeze on a paved bike path, even for a little old lady who has not ridden a bicycle in over 40 years.

Frame & wheels are alum. Spokes are steel (not stainless as on more expensive bikes). Keep it dry & so what! Seat/saddle suspension compliance is 40mm(not tested). Front suspension is very basic, but functional. Handlebar is steel (not stainless) and associated parts allow considerable adjustment. Supplied tires are 26 x 1.95", knobby MTB tread; I replaced with 26x1.4" slicks for street-only riding. Color in clear sun is light blue (as in photos), not light green (as in description). Welds look good; overall workmanship looks good (made in Shenzhen, China). Finish on some parts is not as glossy as highest quality parts but has no functional effect.

Includes quick-release seat tube clamp, quick-release front wheel, welded bosses for water bottle & rear rack, provisions to mount fenders (fenders not included). Standover height at the point where top tube joins the curved brace to the seat tube: 23.5" with no rider with supplied tires. Weight: Approx 33lbs. The gearing is somewhat low as this bike is advertised as a mountain bike, not a street bike. However, unless you are riding very level ground you probably won't find this to be a problem.

Some notes for newbies:
1. Read the supplied Owner's Manual completely; it's a decent intro to bikes and as good as is supplied with other modern bikes. You can get more info from books, the Internet, or a local bike shop. Try these sites from among many: [...]; [...]
2. Rolling friction (energy losses) is related to total weight of bike and rider, not the bike alone. More weight deforms the tire more where it meets the ground. Smaller dia tires & higher pressure can reduce losses--but there are tradeoffs.

We already had an identical Schwinn bike for my wife when we decided to purchase another one for my 10 year old daughter for her birthday, who was already riding Mom's bike. We ordered this one on line thinking I would just put it together and away she would go. The two main problems we ran into were: the bike would not shift properly and the rear wheel "ticking" noise (when you are coasting on the bike) was unbelievably loud. It was so loud that my daughter was embaressed to ride the bike and was saying she wanted a new wheel. To address the shifting issue, I read through the manual and watched youtube videos to learn how to adjust the gears. The manual is pretty useless, its generic for a bunch of different bikes. The Schwinn website is of little help too. The bottom line is that it takes some level of talent and skill to properly adjust the gears, that I don't have. So I took it to a bike shop and had the gears adjusted for $20. I also had the bike shop look at the rear wheel and they indicated Shimano no longer made the "silent hub" for that bike. So I had them swap the rear wheel with the one on my wife's bike, which was very quiet ($10). I did contact the manufacturer and the seller - and they tried to be helpful, but you need a bike mechanic to address these issues. I later realized I could have purchased the equivalent bike from my local bike shop, not a big box sell everything store but a bike only shop, for about $30 to $40 more. But they would have assembled the bike and adjusted it properly, I would have had someone to take the bike to and explain the issues (instead of emails and phone calls) and I would have heard how loud the rear wheel was before purchasing. So for me, my lesson learned is to buy my next bike from my local bike shop.
