We bought four new bikes this past summer. Two Schwinn sidewinders (men's and women's) and two children's bikes. My husband decided he needed this bike after I purchased the women's version and liked it so well. It is a great looking bike and rides well. We are not mountain bikers or anything like that, we simply ride around the neighborhood with the kids and this bike fit that bill perfectly.
I received this as a free sample of the 21 speed Schwinn mountain bike. it was delivered partially assembled. most of the assembly was basic using the instructions,however I believe the instruction book could be more in detail. There was a nut for the front wheel missing,i found it down inside a plastic part that I am not sure where its used or why. the rear brake pad cable was very loose and needed to be adjusted,this is a warning you MAY NEED TWO people to do it,as mine was difficult to get adjusted doing it myself.
I enjoy this Bicylce over all,the gears shift smoothly which surprised me,because the shifters are built into the handles ,which work very good.
the Bicycle rides well.
the handlebar for myself seems to be low to reach,I have to reach forward and down to use them.
I AM 5'10" tall.
assembly instructions are ok,however a few things could be more detailed in the instructions to make assembly easier and faster.
This bike was a nightmare from day one, the front brake was barely working after assembly and I was forced to take it to a bike mechanic. The chain keeps popping off when I switch gears and the bike itself has a very stupid design that will make every possible thing you do on it whether it is riding or maintenance a very sorry experience. Do not buy it.
Easy to assemble, good bike. The bike is a little heavy and the seat is a little hard on my boyfriend’s junk.
Great bike.. Good deal @ walmart!
