Champagne on a Beer BudgetThis reviewer rated product 5 out of 5 stars.jpap9672 years ago
Incredible value for the money. A very lightweight, durable, fast and comfortable all-around hybrid/road bike. The thin profile 29" rims are very strong, and allow the rider to effortlessly speed up and maintain speed. Contoured handle grips keep your wrists in a more positive position and keeps them from getting sore. The best part of the bike = the shifters. Shimano automatic shifters, simple click and your bike changes gears, the switch is spring loaded and you can run through the gears ... sequentially very quickly. I have had my Schwinn Tourist for 7 years now, it is the predecessor to this Volare, same exact form and function with the Shimano gear shifters. I bought the Volare recently and gave my Tourist to my girlfriend so she can ride along with me, couldn't be happier!
Love the RZ Fire shifters.This reviewer rated product 3 out of 5 stars.Lonnie6 months ago
I've had it for over a year now and in the first month I T-boned a curb and bent the front fork in but still rideable. To my surprise the front wheel was not fazed in the least. I also like the narrow tires. I've been riding hybrid bikes for awhile now so it was a nice change to be able to ride faster with less effort. The downside of having it is the bike shops here don't like working on them because they take specialized tools for Schwinn. So I was told. I also liked the quick release on the ... back wheel as well as the front. I might add that I was able to put a different front fork with shock absorbers. I'm not a fan of the rigid front fork being I ride on the sidewalk a lot. I need the cushion that the shock provides when coming off a curb.

Great BikeThis reviewer rated product 5 out of 5 stars.Ronllllll8 months ago
I have been riding this bike for about 2 months now. I have used it in one Sprint Triathlon. I love it. The look it great, and it is very sturdy. Very lightweight for the price and being that it is not carbon fiber. A possible downside is the gear shifters are incorporated into the brakes. This has given me no problems, but i worry about difficulty changing the cables when the time come due to the unique nature. Delivery was fairly quick as well.
