The Schwinn Men’s Volare bike is a beautiful and attractive road bike. It sports all the standard features that you would expect of an entry level bike and more. But, it is the quality of the bike that fascinates its users the most. The bike is available in an elegant white color and looks really nice.
The bike comes with an aluminum frame. The aluminum is inherently lightweight, but is sturdy and powerful. It lends these properties to the frame as well. The frame does not rust, and bend easily either. The multicolored coat makes it really good to look at. The only drawback here is that the bike comes in only one frame size of 56 cm. This is usually the large size for most bikes and the Schwinn Men’s Volare bike is not available in any other size. This really limits the number of people who can buy this bike.
The Volare bike has one rigid fork. The advantage of having such a fork is that it is able to absorb shocks and deliver a smooth riding experience. This feature makes the bike really easy to ride on rough terrains and it prevents any harm to the spine or hip region of the rider by protecting them from sudden jerks.
The manufacturer has included a set of alloy caliper pull brakes, which offer excellent stopping power. As a result, the bike stops precisely when the rider wants it to stop. This is definitely important for preventing accidents. It comes with 14 variable speeds. This makes it useful on different terrains. Whether it is a paved city road or a bumpy mountain track, the bike will work well. However the 14-speeds are not something that a seasoned rider expects from his or her bike. On the other hand, for beginners, this is a great product which helps them get acquainted with the gear system and learn how to use it. Also, the brakes and the derailleurs are from Shimano, which is known for making high quality and long-lasting products. So, excellent performance of these parts is guaranteed.
The bike comes with a drop bar handle and its direction can be changed. The saddle of the bike is quite comfortable, which makes it easier to ride it for long trips. The seat height can also be easily adjusted as per the height of the cyclist. The alloy wheels on the bike are complemented by premium quality rims. This gives an excellent balance to the bike and makes it easy for the cyclist to ride. Tires are good, but they are not designed for riding on wet surfaces.
The assembly of the bike is pretty straightforward and is a one-person job. It only takes around half an hour to assemble the bike completely. The Schwinn Men’s Volare bike is a good product with all the features that are good for beginners. The bike is lightweight, the gears change smoothly, the brakes work great, and the seat is pretty comfortable. All in all, it provides the customer a good value for money.
