After some adjustments, I love this bike!

I had been researching bikes for several months, and found that I liked the Schwinn Discover 700 C Womens bike, model #S5397SR. I really liked the look, but after reading a lot of mixed reviews, I wasn't sure if it was worth nearly $400. I went to the store, and checked it out. The problem was that the tires didn't have a lot of air, so I couldn't test ride it in the store. Since it was on sale, and I could return it, I decided to buy it. The worst part was that the bike was too heavy for me to lift, so I had to wait nearly an hour after buying it, to get any help to put in my trunk. The salesman who sold it to me could see I was waiting for help, but he walked away and didn't help me. I had to ask another salesman, who finally helped me put it in my trunk. I had to tie it down myself, b/c they don't want the liability. The next day, I took the bike out for a test ride, and I could barely ride it as it felt like I was carrying a 200 pound load with a great deal of resistance. I am 5'6" medium build and athletic, so wasn't sure why it was so difficult to ride. I took it to a nearby bike shop and the bike technician made a few adjustments to breaks, checked gears, and adjusted seat height. He advised me to put the gear in 4 or 5 when riding on flat surfaces. I went on my way and what a difference! The only problem was the seat was killing my ****, so I went to another store and purchased a Schwinn Ultra Comfort Seat and have been loving my bike ever since! It's a beautiful bike and rides well. Considering the large price tag for the bike, I recommend the manufacturer change the seat to make it more comfortable to ride, make the bike lighter weight, change to metal mud guards instead of using cheap plastic, add a chain guard and a basket.

Comfortable and Well Made but Assembly IS Required

|

This bike is comfortable to ride. There are a lot of adjustments for the handle bars and seat to make it fit for just about anyone.
Note: The item description nor anywhere through the purchasing process does the site make any reference to assembly of the bike when purchasing online for in-store pickup. There is an extra charge to have the bike assembled at the store.

My perfect bike

I love this bike. It has an aluminum frame, fenders, rackfor my stuff, handle bars that sweep back with special grips. This is like a cruiser with 21 gears. Absolutely lovely.

We love our Schwinn Discover Bikes

|

After searching many websites and visiting many local shops, we purchased a his/her pair of Schwinn Discover bikes at Sears. The price was $50 lower in the store and they were assembled free of charge. I'm 5'10" and husband is 6'2" and the bikes fit perfectly. We bought to ride in local events and cruise paved bike paths in suburbs/city. Comfortable seat and front/seat suspension adds to nice ride. We haven't rode bikes for at least 25 years. Great bikes for getting back in the saddle.

Price is dropping everyday

|

It's a discontinued 2014 model. I bought it two weeks ago and the price has dropped over 50.00 since. By Christmas they will be handing them out for free! Anyway, nothing spectacular about the bike. The large seat is nice. The plastic fenders are weird, but the overall size is perfect for me. I'm 5'9". Price is very fair now.

Check your bicycle before you ride.

|

I purchased this item from Sears and it required me to send for a new rim on the tire: somehow it had been damaged during the packaging. They sent me the new rim in no time and Sears gave me a credit to my card for the damaged wheels. I was very pleased and happy with their response and care of the bicycle. I would purchase again from Sears.

Bike is performing well

|

Bike is comfortable. Assembly was a bit off, so will need to have it tuned up for proper shifting, brake setting, and tightness. Good gear range. Happy with the purchase so far.

Nice bike - but had issues every 3 weeks

|

I loved this bike for to and from work (8 miles a day total). But about every 3 weeks I had a flat rear tire. After replacing it several times at a local bike shop, I asked them to trouble shoot the issue and they discovered a rear wheel defect. This was an online purchase, store assembly & pick up - I am hoping for an exchange - I hope I am the only reviewer with this issue. If it didn't happen, I would be happy with this commute bike. :o)
