Pros:solid Schwinn quality design
Cons:seat is a bit stiff
The Bottom Line: Great bike for beginner or intermediate riders
The Mens Schwinn 700C Trail Way Hybrid bike is in the true Schwinn tradition of quality products. The frame is solid and neatly welded. Handlebar comfort grips provide just enough cushion to keep your hands from getting tired.

The seat is comfortable, however for distance riding, I'd suggest buying an upgrade saddle seat with more spring or cushion. The factory seat is fine for most short rides, but anything over 8 miles calls for a seat change.
Gears shift smoothly with the click shift levers...no hunting for the gear! Click it and the shifters move to the next gear. Easy to use.
The brakes are a basic sturdy design and easy to adjust or clean(squeaking indicates either worn brakes or pads that are bent slightly out of alignment, which will happen from time to time). Bending the pads back(with pliers or a screwdriver) to where they are parallel with the wheel usually does the trick.
The bike is lightweight and provides easy pedaling. The hybrid design gives this bike the rugged ability of a mountain bike and the smooth ride of a racing bike. Some refer to this style as a fitness bike.
The tire/wheel assembly are standard Schwinn, however you can switch to "presta valves"(air valves that are metal) which replaces the rubber tire valves that can become bent or out of shape... which puts stress on the inner tube and can cause a leak.
The Mens Schwinn 700C Trail Way Hybrid Bike is a very nice looking bike with loads of visual appeal. It's in the same line as the earlier Schwinn Crisscross hybrid, which earned high marks among bike enthusiasts.
