You’ll enjoy the excitement, speed, and fun of the open road on Schwinn’s Fastback 3. Its triple butted-aluminum frame is light and efficient for a wonderful road feel. The 24-speed Shimano triple-chainring drivetrain provides a wide gear range for easy climbing and the dual-pivot Schwinn brakes offer excellent stopping-power for speed control. You also get easy-rolling lightweight wheels, quality tires, a fine Schwinn seat, and pedals complete with toe-clips and straps.
This is a pretty good bike if this is your first road bike & for me it is. I have ridden some of the more expensive & luxurious bikes, like Bianchi's, Treks, Cannondale's, LOOK, & GianT. And of course a bike that is over $2000 bucks is going to be better all around including parts etc... BUT....Don't be so quick to discard this lil fella, It certainly holds it's own against some of the more expensive brands. Even when I finally get the chance to upgrade, I will without a doubt hold on to this bike. And it's a very good looking bike.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
