One can't actually believe that that there is someone at the Kineses production line mixing up a special batch of aluminum for each bike that goes down the line. That covers the frame.
The Shimano groupset is the Claris 2400, a SR Suntuor crankset and DNP Epoch Hyperwave 8 speed freehub (not freewheel). With Microshift levers. This is not a 14 speed bike as in the description, it is a 16 speed (2 speed crank side 8 speed cassette.)
The seat and all the other components are bike shop quality. The bike weighs 26 pounds with the comfort saddle which is very light.
This is for a person over 5'8". they have a 16" model too but it is listed as a women's model Phocus 1600.
This bike rides like the wind and will last for many years with proper maintenance :)
I have posted a detailed assembly video and a test drive on YouTube. just put the user name "codieraji" in the search window. or "Schwinn Phocus 1600 Assembly Review Test Ride"
First impressions- Putting it together only took 35 minutes.I could have been faster but I wanted to make sure I got everything right.Brakes needed adjusted as expected and gears needed tuned a little but was very easy due to all the youtube video's online.Save yourself cash and tune it.. takes less than half an hour...Im 6'3 and the seat still had about and inch of adjustment higher so I think this is perfect for taller riders.
The finish on the bike is nice and does not feel cheap nor does anything else on the bike BESIDES the brake pads.That is my one ''issue''.They do stop you but not very well and have a plastic feel to them.Not rubbery like id expect.Maybe this is normal but I will be changing them out for ones that have better bite.The brake calipers themselves are well made and easy to adjust its just the pads are mediocre.Luckily pads are very cheap.
This bike exceeded my expectations.I was kinda shocked how nice it was for the price.
Primarily this bike is set up as a racing bike. By that I mean that it comes with 23mm tires. Most road bikes come with 25mm tires nowadays, and endurance road bikes (those designed for longer rides) come with 28mm tires. This bike has an aluminum frame which is very stiff, and although the carbon fork adds some smoothness to the ride, with 23mm tires the ride on this bike is very stiff (read bumpy). A stiff ride is fine if you are planning to race on a very smooth road surface, but chances are you would not buy a relatively heavy bike like this for racing. These skinny tires are also more susceptible to flats, especially if not inflated to the correct pressure of approximately 100-120 PSI. With this bike that is exacerbated by the fact that the tubes that come with the tires are not the greatest, which may explain why so many people report flat tires.
I bought this bike for commuting to work (about 10 miles in my case). One of the first things that I did was put 28mm tires on it to smooth out the ride somewhat.
The gear ratio is also set up for speed. I find that I only use the top two gears during relatively steep descents, when I get up to approximately 30 miles per hour. In contrast I wish that I had at least one additional lower gear when I am on climbs, even relatively gentle ones.
Others have commented on the brake pads. The pads that come with the bike are fine, but they will wear out more quickly than a higher quality pad, so keep an eye on their wear as you ride. On my bike the brake calipers were twisted so that they did not align properly with the rim. I had to have my local bike shop bend them back into alignment since there is no way to adjust this.
All that being said, I put 20 miles on this bike every workday with more on weekends and it has worked out great for me following the modifications that I mention. If you are looking for an inexpensive durable bike this is a good choice.

UPDATE: My front tire blew and is now leaking... I guess its amateurish of me to try to maximize the psi at 100 (previously at 85psi).Read more
Lever, 3 broken reflectors. No way to attach front wheel to bike.
