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.
It's my first road bike in a long time so I can't compare it to others. But it's a much nicer ride on the road than my mountain bike :)
With that said, it seems to be fine in all aspects.
It took a few rides to get used to the gear lever set up because it was different than anything I've used....but now I really like it.
Shifts quick and smooth.
Putting it together was a breeze.(I am pretty mechanically inclined so 'breeze' is a relative term)
It's very light and loads easily.
Both wheels have easy on/off levers. I only use the front but the rear is there if/when needed.
This is the first factory saddle that I have ever been able to ride with! As with any saddle, padded shorts help, but I can do 10 miles and not hate the ride without padded shorts.
Quite a bit less expensive than other brand road bikes.
Honestly the only real cons I can find are probably just my preferences. One being the handlebars. I would like a little wider bars, and needed them closer to me. I also like additional brake levers for repositioning, but have found that with the gear lever locations it's really not an issue since I keep my hands on the gear levers 90% of the time. Nothing wrong with the handlebars that come with it at all....and I am keeping them...Just used to wider bars in the past.
The foot straps are not something I use. I don't race or do endurance rides so they were removed. If I start, I'll likely buy something else anyway, so again not a real con (for me)
This is a pretty big bike. I'm 5'10" and have about a 32-33" inseam. It fits me well but I wouldn't go any bigger for me. The main adjustments I had to make, was bringing the handlebars up and in closer to me. It was a stretch and way too uncomfortable. As a side note.... I had back surgery 3 months before purchasing this, so keep that in mind, but I will say either way I would have had to reposition the bars. it was just too much of a stretch. So if you have to do that it may cost an extra $30-50. Something I didn't really want to do, but realized it's still cheaper than the other road bikes, and I probably would have to do the same thing if I had bought one of them.
The tires are very thin and it rolls good. You will feel all the big bumps for sure, but that's probably with any 'road' bike. It's very reactive to all steering corrections. This is a little new to me since I had fatter tires on my mountain bike and previous road bikes. Getting used to it now though and like the additional speed it seems to allow.
After adjusting the cables/gears it's quiet and smooth.
Overall I really like this bike a lot. I wasn't sure if I could ride very well after back surgery and can't really do mountain/trail biking. I'm 54 and pretty active so I had to have something. Running is on hold, so this was perfect to get going without spending a ton of money (on top of medical bills!)
I am loving it so far.
I recommend a few things if you purchase:
Watch the videos on cable/gear/brake adjustments on YouTube.
Here's one I used: (...)search_query=art%27s+cyclery+rear+derailleur
I put a 2x4 in my vice and then clamped it down with another(and some padding) to get it off the ground while working on it.
Here is the riser I used: http://www.amazon.com/Delta-Cycle-Alloy-Bicycle-Raiser/dp/B000FGYKWS?ie=UTF8&ref_=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_6
Here is the stem I used: http://www.amazon.com/Aluminum-31-8mm-Cycling-Mountain-Handlebar/dp/B017YRH88S/ref=sr_1_1?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1465055417&sr=1-1&keywords=Aluminum+Alloy+Fixed+31.8mm+Cycling+Mountain+Bike+Short+Handlebar+Stem+Riser
There are tons of other options, just wanted to add info for what worked for me.
Hope this helps. Be safe and enjoy...
UPDATE- Have put over 800 miles on this bike in 4 months, not including many hours on the trainer. I completed a 103 mile century on it in 6 hours and 29 minutes. Its a solid bike.
Bought this bike about a month ago and have already put well over a hundred miles on it. It is a strong bike. I have had more expensive bikes in the past for cycling, and I noticed no difference in quality. My only concern is that assembly was slightly harder than imagined. Taking to a local bike store to fully assemble/adjust brakes etc etc is recommended. This bike fits me great. I am 5 10'

Lever, 3 broken reflectors. No way to attach front wheel to bike.
Had to spent another 80$ to replace both front and rear tires and tubes.Read more
