Or for those that ride 20 miles plus a day and could beast children like yourself, but want something more relaxed to just pop to town on.

More bikes on the road the better.

I could be wrong in my thinking and I really do agree about more bikes being on the road etc being a good thing.

However, lets not delude ourselves here, this is as much a Schwinn as the millions of other bikes actually made in China/ Taiwan with various names stuck on them.

Basically, buy it if its within budget and you like its styling its probably a perfectly fine bike for the money..... just don't buy it because of its historic Americana branding. Its not a Schwinn. If the names important, go buy any generic brand bike of similar ilk and get some Schwinn stickers of Ebay.

Not voting eitherway.

(hey, I own a Marin.....designed in California...... but made in Taiwan.) I liked the design and price however, didn't care about the sticker.)

Just know what your buying and be happy with it.

Great deal, but I fail to see why it's being called a hybrid bike oO

Ivory tyres....I'm a sucker for them.

Called a hybrid I suspect because 'sit up and beg shopping bike' wouldn't really fly off the shelves, in reality its a hybrid of a shopping bike with another shopping bike Nothing wrong with that though, all bikes have their uses.

Mostly stainless steel and aluminum, a pity the frame and the handlebars are not aluminum for the price.

Lovely looking bike and the new price seems good but I would not pay the original price

Not for hilly areas.

or for people who buy bikes sensibly,unlike most young people who buy mountain bikes and ride on a road?

That's a lot of bike for the money.
It has a 3 speed Shimano Nexus hub, Tektro brakes, aluminium hubs and the frame welding doesn't look like it's been done by a 5 year old.
If that's the type of bike you want (a bike that is actually useful for day-to-day stuff), I'd say it's a bargain.

buddhabelly has it about right.

This looks like a good solid bike for pottering about to the shops, pub, college whatever. Not flash, retro but not excessively so, and good simple basic components. The tyres probably aren't that great, and my experience of Tektro brakes is OK but no more than that - but decent brake blocks can make all the difference. Three speeds might not seem much, but we managed perfectly well with three-speed bikes for decades before derailleurs took hold.

Features such as mudguards, rack and propstand make a real difference to usability; all it's missing for me is dynamo lights, but battery LEDs are dirt cheap anyway.

I need a bike for college but don't have £174.99 to pay for it ...

Do bikes like these come on sale regularly? around £200 is my budget in the future. I hope I don't buy it and not use it though

Looks like a good bike. I ride a 30 year old Triumph bike that's older than me. Bought it off a old lady whose husband had died for £20. These style of bikes are great for a lot of day to day riding. I laugh when I over take people on their mountain bikes struggling on the road with their big thick tyres. I also take this style of bike off road on country lanes and off road paths and it's fine. Even have my son on the back sometimes. Obviously depends on the quality of components. Maintenance is easy too, especially the gears in comparison to the horrible derailleur system.

Bold bit is the most important! It weighs a pretty hefty 16.5kg & has pretty fat tyres, so if you are looking for a bike to cruise on in good weather, then go for it. For anything else, look elsewhere.

This for £189 doesn't look too shabby - rutlandcycling.com/109…spx EDIT: S or XS only though.

Quite like the Schwinn, but not enough to buy.

EDIT: If you're on a budget, look around for something second hand - can be much cheaper.

Is 16.5kg considered heavy? My alu framed XL Cannondale weighs 14.5kg with mudguards, and Aldi pannier rack.

But at least you can ride a mountain bike on a road, then go mountain biking. You can't do that with a road bike.

It is a shame they don't have the Large size in stock, I am 6'1"

I am on the lookout for a nice simple bike such as this. It is a genuine price reduction too. I have spent far too long trying to adjust my 21 speed Shimano Derailleur, when I could have been out enjoying a ride.

For those that say, "It's not a Schwinn" I am afraid you could say the same about almost any brand name bike today,
at least in this price bracket. They are pretty much all built in Taiwan or China. As are most of the components such as gears etc.

Nice find OP, heat added. Now to find a large one for this price.......

I was only kidding. I own a hybrid for riding with the kids/shopping. This bike is ideal for that sort of riding and looks pretty stylish too. Over in Belgium/Netherlands practically every bike is like this one.
