Schwinn 411 IG5 Commuter Bike
We're about to drop some serious 411 about commuter bikes on you. The Schwinn 411 IG5 is top dog when it comes to this category. This is one of the most distinctive and practical bikes we've come across yet. This thing is all about top to bottom practicality that has some jaw-dropping good looks. The aluminum frame has a unique split top tube design and a front cargo basket that's integrated into the handlebars. And since one gear is never really enough, the rear wheel has a Sturmey Archer rear hub to put 5 gears at your finger tips with minimal maintenance and no fuss. The disc brakes make stopping in even the worst weather easy and worry-free.

    Comments about Schwinn Cycling & Fitness Schwinn 411 IG5 Bike:

    It is a beautiful, not so ordinary bike. I love it but there are a few issues. The cheap chain guard rattles, and will be removed. Because the gears are in the hub, you have to briefly stop pedaling to change them. The thumb changer is in the way and sticks me until I get used to it, would prefer a twist shifter. The gears are way off and will not go into every gear, needs adjusting out of the box. On steep hills it slips in and out of gear, but I hope the adjustment takes care of that. These are small things, I actually love this bike.

    Comments about Schwinn Cycling & Fitness Schwinn 411 IG5 Bike:

    I have several bikes of all styles and have ridden for 20 years. I picked this up at 60% off. Good, light bike for commuting or casual riding. Frame and fork are solid. Disc breaks have nice stopping power. Assembly was easy. Has a comfortable riding position and the handlebar rack is cute, but not too practical. The 5-speed internal hub is iffy at best with unresponsive shifting and gear slips (definitely below average). The seat is a little to hard/sleek for casual riders. The chain guard is a rattling bit of plastic that should be disposed of. This is a decent bike if you can get it for at least 50% off.

    Comments about Schwinn Cycling & Fitness Schwinn 411 IG5 Bike:

    I was very hesitant to order this bike without being able to test drive it ahead of time. Much of the trepidation had to do with the integrated basked and possible limitations of a five-speed. After much internet research, I decided to pull the trigger. I am glad I did. HERE ARE MY PROS: Assembly was easier than expected. I used the online bike "sizer" to determine the bike size. I found this to be very accurate. I am 5'8" and the medium fits me perfectly. Bike arrived well packaged from Nashbar and right on the day they said it would. Some online reviewers seemed to think this bike was on the heavy side, I did not. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised how light it is. CONS: The only reason I cannot give this bike a solid five-star review is that I think the gear ratios could be "wider". There seems to be virtually no difference between second and third gears, and with only five speeds this is definitely something that should be better thought out. Additionally, there was a minor issue with a slightly miss-formed tread on one wheel. This was not cause enough for me to return it, but it does point to some possible quality control issues. SUMMARY: At the Nashbar price, this bike is a no brainer. People have randomly commented on how cool the bike (and basket) look. I don't think I have ever received unsolicited comments from complete strangers on a bike before. As a commuter/recreational cyclist this bike fits my lifestyle and intended purpose perfectly. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

      Comments about Schwinn Cycling & Fitness Schwinn 411 IG5 Bike:

      Saw this model a few years ago but did not purchase till price was more reasonable to me.Reading through other reviews online I had an expectation of what to expect when the bike arrived and spent a few hours in assembly and adjustments.I did try to use it with all parts attached but found major deficiency in the plastic chain guard and the chain tensioner.Try as I might the chain guard could not be mounted in a way so it would not rattle or rub,so I eventually removed it.The second and probably more annoying issue was the chain tensioner.Between the noise and amount of drag it caused I still fail to understand why it was even used.No amount of adjusting or lube seemed to make any difference so it too was removed.Now the bike operates quietly and smooth as I had hoped.The only other change I made was switching the positions of the gear lever and the rear brake lever.When I got the bike the gear lever was outboard of the brake lever interfering with your hand at all times but 1st and fifth gear.I peeled off the hand grip,loosened both levers and reversed so the gear selector is now much farther toward the handlebar stem.You can still operate the lever with ease using just a thumb.Now the bike is operating the way I hoped it would so I can recommend it as a commuter/leisure bike for someone with a budget in mind.The gearing is adequate for most conditions,I mostly am in third gear and usually stop pedaling during gear changes,seems to help with this type of rear hub.Brakes work great and comfort level is good,all in all am now very satisfied after the changes I made.

      If you're looking for a bullet proof commuter this bike rocks. This is the first bike with disk brakes that I've put a rack on. You need a rear rack designed for this.

        Easy to assemble, comfortable ride. Better get some toe clips for this one. My size 12 shoes hit the front wheel pretty easy when turning. Clips will solve the problem. Built in "basket" is smaller than I thought (was hoping to carry a bag of groceries but too small).Other than that it is a good buy.

          I really love this bike. Rides really nice for commuting and I like that it has 5 speeds but I live in Arizona where it's pretty flat so it's in 3rd gear most of the time. I find I'm riding more ofter to run errands and coincidentally the weird basket in the front is the perfect size for a 6-pack of beer.

          Really cool bike. I was going to buy the size SMALL. But I went by the sizing chart and chatted online with a someone in product support. They said I should get a size MED. for my size.(Im 5'9",160lbs.)But I should have chose the SMALL. Im bummed. Be carful! This bike is BIG when using the size chart. There will be NO room for adjustments.
          Bummed. :(
          I guess I will try to sell it and get the smaller size.

          Great bike at the price. Go over whole bike for loose bolts, I found a few. Needs better pedals, and chain tensioner, otherwise great bike.

          I love this bike! It's a little heavy and the finish on stem,post,crank arms,basket would've been nice black. Other than that it rides well and the 5 speed is more than enough for around the town rides. For the price I couldn't me more happy and I now have a year round ride for bouncing around close to home.
