    This review is from: Schwinn Discover Women’s Hybrid Bike (700C Wheels) (Sports)
    I am 5’6″ female and this bike is perfect! It is comfortable and a great height. I wanted the look of the cruisers, but wanted to be able to keep up with my husband while biking. This bike fits the bill perfectly – it has the mud guards and the cute back rack, but it can keep up too! There are a lot of gears, I don’t change them too much, but I do like having them instead of just 1 or 3 options like a cruiser would offer. I’ve ridden this bike to work (~ 7 miles one way) and it was a great ride. The seat is comfortable too. I would highly recommend this bike if you want a cute, sophisticated bike that can ride well too.

    Just know that you will have to take this to a bike shop unless you’re a professional. It pretty much comes assembled, so my husband put it together, seemed easy enough – unfortunately he put the handle bars on backwards (looked normal to me! lol) and the fender in the front kept rubbing on the tires – also the gears felt weird and it was hard to pedal — once we had the bike shop do the adjustments (~ $50) it was like a completely different bike! I would highly recommend just taking the bike to the bike shop and asking them to assemble it – that way they can’t make fun of how you (or your spouse) assembled it in the first place lol.

    UPDATE 7.6.2013
    I want to provide an update to my review and respond to a few of the comment threads/questions here.

    I’ve now had this bike for 2 & 1/2 years and it is still working great! I love my bike and have been mostly happy with my purchase with just a few (minor) exceptions.

    I did not purchase any baskets or accessories so I can’t comment or make recommendations on those (sorry), however, I will mention the back of the bike does have a piece that you can put a small bag and it will hold it down via spring action (i.e. Walgreens bag, small messenger bag, small zipped up purse, or similar).

    As for it being too tall for some people, I can understand why it may seem so and I do have to jump off the bike to dismount when I stop – I cannot touch the ground to stop, but as mentioned previously that would mean the bike is too small. I believe this is a good comfortable ride for someone of my size – I think if you are shorter (5’4″ or under) than this bike will be too big. If I were to make a guess, I would say it is meant for someone between 5’5″-5’9″. The seat does sit a little high.

    I definitely do NOT think this bike is good for off road riding. I had thought the same as others – that a hybrid could go off road. This thinking got me several flat tires ? and was very uncomfortable ride off road. This could be the type of tires that are on it – maybe if you changed the tires out it would work but honestly I would have just opted for a mountain bike if I was going to take it off pavement. I would consider this more of a leisure ride bike.

    The issues I have had with the bike are:
    1) The tires – I’ve had to have them replaced – this is probably common and I used a Living Social Deal for new bike tires when mine went out.
    2) The fender piece on the front comes loose and rubs on the tires no matter how many times I’ve had a bike shop “fix” it and my husband has to tighten it occasionally while we are riding. Keep in mind that when I received my bike it was missing the bolt and nut that is suppose to hold the fender on. Instead of sending it back I took it to the bike shop for the assembly mentioned above and they said it was no big problem and they put a bold and nut on it. I’ve continued to have problems with it though so I thought it was worth mentioning.

    Other than that I’ve been super happy with my bike. I think for the price it is a well made bike that has functioned how I wanted it to. If you are looking for more intense bike riding – for speed or off-road – then you will probably land up spending more than this bike costs. If you are looking for a great bike to take out on paved trails for sight-seeing and such then this is perfect. Good luck in your bike search!
