UPDATE: Over 3,000 miles on this bike in the last year and it's still is going strong. Only changes I made have been new tires and tubes. Well, I did get a new seat(saddle)to make myself a little more comfortable. Its really been a great bike for under 300 bucks.
I know the posting said to have it tuned up, but I took a crack at putting the bike together myself just to test. All that i needed was a screwdriver, set of allen keys, and a wrench for putting the pedals on. After assembly, i took a short ride and the gears made a little noise and did not hit the full range of shifting. In the end i did take it to a shop and have the gears tuned.
Two things that i do not like about the bike are: 1) the foot pedal cups are there for the long haul as they are not easy to remove. i stopped trying. and 2) the brake cables are wrapped into the grip tape from the lever to the stem, so if you have accessories like a headlight, you may want to consider either retaping the bars or buying a new mount to allow for the extra space you will need.
Overall fantastic bike and did i mention that it looks super cool too!?
Update 5/6/16: Got my first pinch flats and after 2 more popped tubes i discovered the issue. The rim liner in my rear wheel was slightly offset over the spoke holes. This caused the tube to fall into the hole and create the pinch flat. I do not want this to be a detractor from the bike, as it is a great bike, but i would highly recommend getting a cloth rim tape to prevent flats of this nature. The rim tape that comes with the bike is made of some sort of heat shrunk polymer and is not very flexible or workable.
Shwinn customer service is very good. I only had one issue, and they resolved it right away.
Don't hesitate to buy this one bike.
Not knowing what to expect, when I first received the bike (very well packaged) I went through the manual and like other said, it is not a perfect one...Anyhow, quickly referencing the manual, I installed the front wheel, handling bar, shifter and seat, then I spent the next hour adjusting the shifter's tension setting (and it is still not perfect), checking tire pressure then I took it for a spin because I assumed it was "ready to ride" since everything else arrived pre-assembled. It turn out I was so wrong.....after the quick spin, I realized the following need fix:
-The screw holding the stem/headset was coming loose, dangerous, little control on turning.
-Front & rear brakes need adjusting, not providing much stopping power.
-When applied, the front brake caliper clamped onto the black part of rim, scratched off sticker and some paint
-Not used to toeclip, almost fell when dismounting, had to remove it.
-without guard, the front chainring ripped opened my favorite long training pant.
-The metal pedals has some of the sharpest edges, got many small cut from it, need some sanding.
Time fast forward 3 weeks of times, when my rear tire popped, while parking at my house...... Feeling very odd at the time, how can a tire pop when it is just sitting there?...I thought to myself, and grandpa tried to convinced me it was the heat from sun....okay.....Not knowing if it is patchable/what tube to get (many difference spec), so I took it to my local bike shop and have the guy changed a new tube for me for $10. After I got home, pumped it up, 30 minutes later grandpa scream at me, "a loud bang just came from from where you parked your bike...", feeling all kind of confusion, I quickly went to where my bike was, it was still there, not stolen but the rear tire is flat again, I thought to myself, WTH?....I even called the guy who changed the tube for me and he assured me it was a brand new tube.
After asking my friend Google, I quickly learned a new word: Rim Tape, how an exposed rim hole can literally cut through your tube and how it is the major cause for recurring tire popping action.....So, I took the tire apart to inspect damage, not very surprisingly, part of holes were exposed and I thought, "Oh, part of the rim tape has shifted". I quickly order some 13mm rim tape (it turn out you need something like 17mm), once it has arrived I replaced the rear wheel then the real surprise came when I started to work on the front wheel. Little did I know, I was perhaps riding my luck this whole time as the front rim tape was literally a mess; it was twisted, shifted, folded, and dozen of rim holes were exposed....I could only imagine what would have happened if I were to have a suddenly popped tire when going at 15+ mph on the road, where it is filled with fast moving cars that can easily finish me off after the fall.......
So note to all buyer, check your rim tape, replace them if you are not short of the $10 so you can avoid your possibly injure or death.
Last but no least, some other things I noticed after another 6 weeks of riding is the brake. Ever since I had a hard-ish brake, the brake made an awful noise when breaking, it is only gone as of recently. Second thing about the braking is that this bike simply won't stop quickly if you are going on full speed on any gear faster then on High-4 (10+ mph, maybe?), it can slowly down if you give it like 10 feet of distance at that speed but if apply full brake on both front and rear, the rear tire simply slide out and leave you with a tail spin, which I almost fell at one time. Recently the crank is making a clicking noise when going uphill, probably some screw to be tighten up.
Of course, is this a good bike? Probably, after some fixing that is. For example, I was amazed how easier it was to adjust the brake tension, it was like a breeze compare to my previous $100 mountain bike. The bike is much faster and feel easier to go at higher speed then on my MT bike, very smooth riding, but also very bumpy ride, not forgiving on the road at all. The tire does lose air over time, the manual say check pressure every week, I got lazy and one month later the pressure dropped from 120 PSI to about 75 PSI. So check your pressure every week or every other week just to be safe. Coming from MT bike, I feel the bike pedals are rather small, sometime it is hard to put my food to a comfortable spot, especially when trying to stand up to get that extra push to get speed or uphill. About uphill, the Low chainring + gear 1 surely help out alot, I wouldn't know how to clamp some hill without it. And for those who are not sure which tube to buy, I tried the Continental 42mm Presta Valve Tube, (700 x 20-25cc) ASIN: B0068FAXTY, it has work well for me (Presta Valve are so interesting...)
I hope my experience would put some insight for this bike, especially on the rim tape part, it was a really scary thing. Lastly, I just want to say this is not a bad starter bike, just check everything to make sure they are working as intended.
