Outside of that compatibility issue I would say that the bike is "OK". It took me about 2 hours to assemble it, but I don't think I would buy a bike on-line again. Before I discovered the compatibility issue and even without my wife riding it, I found that the brakes were a little temperamental and I was considering taking it to the local bike shop to give it a once over. I never got around to testing the gears etc and usually they're even more temperamental. I think the next time I buy a bike I will go to my local bike shop - something like this is a purchase that doesn't work that well for an on-line sale.
Just know that you will have to take this to a bike shop unless you're a professional. It pretty much comes assembled, so my husband put it together, seemed easy enough - unfortunately he put the handle bars on backwards (looked normal to me! lol) and the fender in the front kept rubbing on the tires - also the gears felt weird and it was hard to pedal -- once we had the bike shop do the adjustments (~ $50) it was like a completely different bike! I would highly recommend just taking the bike to the bike shop and asking them to assemble it - that way they can't make fun of how you (or your spouse) assembled it in the first place lol.
I want to provide an update to my review and respond to a few of the comment threads/questions here.
I've now had this bike for 2 & 1/2 years and it is still working great! I love my bike and have been mostly happy with my purchase with just a few (minor) exceptions.
I did not purchase any baskets or accessories so I can't comment or make recommendations on those (sorry), however, I will mention the back of the bike does have a piece that you can put a small bag and it will hold it down via spring action (i.e. Walgreens bag, small messenger bag, small zipped up purse, or similar).
As for it being too tall for some people, I can understand why it may seem so and I do have to jump off the bike to dismount when I stop - I cannot touch the ground to stop, but as mentioned previously that would mean the bike is too small. I believe this is a good comfortable ride for someone of my size - I think if you are shorter (5'4" or under) than this bike will be too big. If I were to make a guess, I would say it is meant for someone between 5'5"-5'9". The seat does sit a little high.
I definitely do NOT think this bike is good for off road riding. I had thought the same as others - that a hybrid could go off road. This thinking got me several flat tires :( and was very uncomfortable ride off road. This could be the type of tires that are on it - maybe if you changed the tires out it would work but honestly I would have just opted for a mountain bike if I was going to take it off pavement. I would consider this more of a leisure ride bike.
The issues I have had with the bike are:
1) The tires - I've had to have them replaced - this is probably common and I used a Living Social Deal for new bike tires when mine went out.
2) The fender piece on the front comes loose and rubs on the tires no matter how many times I've had a bike shop "fix" it and my husband has to tighten it occasionally while we are riding. Keep in mind that when I received my bike it was missing the bolt and nut that is suppose to hold the fender on. Instead of sending it back I took it to the bike shop for the assembly mentioned above and they said it was no big problem and they put a bold and nut on it. I've continued to have problems with it though so I thought it was worth mentioning.
Other than that I've been super happy with my bike. I think for the price it is a well made bike that has functioned how I wanted it to. If you are looking for more intense bike riding - for speed or off-road - then you will probably land up spending more than this bike costs. If you are looking for a great bike to take out on paved trails for sight-seeing and such then this is perfect. Good luck in your bike search!
For those looking for a bike that a bike-trailer can easily attach to:
This is not the one. This bike's rear-wheel does Not have a quick release and because of the mudflap, the standard bike-trailer attachment does Not fit due to the mudflap nut/bolt. Luckily, a friend was able to take off the mudflap bolt and tie the piece that would attach to the bolt to the bolt whole and then there was enough room for the bike-trailer attachment. If I would have known this, I would not have bought this bike. But, luckily, the fix worked and it really is a nice bike.
I was really excited about getting this bike, following so many good reviews on Amazon.
The bike arrived in apparent good condition, and I took it right away to the bike shop for professional assembly.
The mechanic called today, and informed me that the chain rings are completely bent, and that it's not something they can fix. He also told me that, had I bought a better quality bike, he could have fixed it. In his opinion, since the box was in good condition, it was more likely that the bike was defective to start with.
So, lesson learned, I'm returning this bike as fast as I can, and I'm buying directly from the bike shop. I will have to save some more to afford their bikes (starting at $500), but at least I can be sure that I'll get a bike in a working condition, and I'll be able to take it to the bike shop for warranty qualifying repairs.
Amazon's service was spotless, as usual, and perhaps even Schwinn would replace the bike, but I just don't want to bother with all that.
Bad luck maybe, it was my birthday gift, too.
