Schwinn Fastback 1 Women's Road Bike
From a legendary company comes a women's road bike that looks like it's ready for a speeding ticket just standing still. The Schwinn Fastback 1 Women's Road Bike features a super-stiff, lightweight aluminum frame that provides premium power transfer while the carbon fork and carbon-wrapped seatpost help smooth out road vibrations. Shifting is handled by Shimano's rock steady 10-speed Tiagra group while the compact crankset (with 50/34 tooth chainrings) provides enough relief on climbs to (dare we say it) make them more of a pleasure than a pain.
  • Triple-butted aluminum frame is stiff, durable and lightweight
  • Women's specific geometry ensures increased comfort
  • Shimano Tiagra 10-speed drivetrain provides precision shifting
  • Alex RACE28 wheels deliver plenty of zip with aero rims and spokes

Great bike (wrong size chart?)

  • Cheap tires

Great bike, but the SIZE CHART IS WRONG. (apparently there are 4 women's sizes, the men's comes in 5) The XS women's TT measurement is closer to 50cm.

You will NOT find a better deal on a legit entry-level road bike ANYWHERE. Big Nashbar sale and you can't get 7-speed components for that price. Even crankset is Tiagra. Bought this for my teen daughter, and she will have to race very often and very fast before she needs an upgrade. I rode steel for years and currently have a 'special' carbon bike w/Sram, so I'm no pro but feel qualified to endorse it.
Gorgeous bike! Smooth paintjob on a cleanly welded frame. Subtle butterfly-wing pattern on top & down tubes is nice feminine touch without being overtly 'girly'. Blue highlights against black are sweet...heck, a guy could ride it and not get a second glance.

Professionally packed in the box, needs very little assembly (attach stem, pedals, front brake). Full Shimano documentation and assembly instructions.
Don't let the brand name scare you on this bike; Schwinn's own website is lacking (even THEY don't have the proper size chart), but they haven't short-changed anything on this bike but the tires.

Wheels mostly true out of the box- certainly ride-able but not perfect. Nameless but decent brakes, but new brake pads will answer any braking concerns. Cons- cheap tires; left residue streak on trainer(!)
As the "experienced' rider, I have no regrets on this purchase. My daughter is in love with it, and has her eager to get ride, even on the trainer.

    Good bike for the price and it meets all of my needs. I went from a triple crank to a double crank, so I swapped the cassette for a 12x30.
