  1. Good, but needs a lot of tuning!!The bike took me awhile to assemble and adjust. I replaced the tires with puncture resistant ones, as I do not trust the ones it comes with. After riding it a bit, I realized that its front and rear derailleurs were miss-aligned. After a few youtube tutorials, I fixed them.Everything seemed good, until I noticed a sand grinding noise from the rear wheel (which I later discovered was coming from the freehub). So, I ended up purchasing tools and took the cassette apart. Doing so, I notice the rear hub and axel assembly were extremely tight, and hard to twist by hand. This led me to check the front hub also – and same issue… the ball bearings in both wheels were over squeezed.. So I ended taking the hubs apart, replaced the ball bearings (which I also ended up purchasing), lubricated the rear freehub which was making that sand grinding noise all along and voila, I am now a certified bike repairman!After going through all this pain, the bike is fast, silent and a pleasure to ride! I give it lots of love, and tell it goodnight before bed!Looking back, I did not fully appreciate what the reviewers meant when they said that this bike needs to be tuned and adjusted before ridding.O, and also, it weighs 24lbs! :)Edit: This review was for a bike that cost CDN$ 908.00 (tax included)

  2. Great investment for first road bike3 month update:Now have just under 2000 miles on the bike. Only altercation I have had is 1 tube replacement. A small piece of glass popped the tube and I patched it which lasted a week or so. The tire lost air easily so I replaced it. Not a big deal though. Besides that, I have had no major mechanical or structural issues with the bike. I’m happy so far though, I now realize doing over 600 miles a month that I will need to upgrade to a 1200-1500 dollar bike.Update: 1 month laterHave now rode a total of 530 miles and things are holding up well. The bottom bracket has not totally worn out but I have dealt with some clicking and plan to replace it with something new. Possibly a hollow tech BB and better crank set as well. The tires and tubes have surprisingly held up all this time. I also plan to purchase some clipless pedals and shoes for that. Very pleased thus far.Great first impression. Took about an hour to assemble. Have already put 25 miles on the bike (coming from south Florida) and it rides smooth and have not had any issues with tires. The reason I am giving it 4 stars is because upon assembly, I noticed that the front derailleur was rubbing against the chain when I shifted on to the largest chain ring. I made all possible adjustments with the cable tension, barrel adjuster, and limiting screws but nothing seemed to fix it. I brought it into a local shop and they said the bottom bracket is not fitted properly for the bike and unless you change it or get another derailleur, it will continue to rubb. However, they made some adjustments including tightening the crank set, and bending the derailleur slightly so that the bike ran smooth and I would not have any issues. It may need to be permanently fixed in the future. Luckily, they did not charge me for the fix. I am 5.8″ and I have Long arms but the bike is still a little big on me and requires me to lean forward more than I would like. The seat is poor quality so I’d recommend upgrading. Brakes work alright and are cheap but on flat roads there shouldn’t be an issue. Tires are stock 28 mm and are holding up very well for now. I am brand new to road biking and I am 24 and in good shape so maintaining 18-20 mph is easy without a headwind. Overall, is highly recommend purchasing this item however, expect to put money into it if you want to ride this for years to come.

  3. Excellent Schwinn BikeI am very happy with the Schwinn Phocus 1600. Here are my observations and reasons I gave it 5 stars. I highly recommend this bike to anyone looking for a high-quality road bike that is priced right.1. The bike came well packed with several cardboard tubes around the frame, bubble wrap around the handlebars, and many tie wraps to hold all the parts snugly together.2. The tires are high quality and the Schrader valves are secured to the wheels, so they don’t push in when you fill the tires with air. In my opinion the 700X23 tires look good on this bike, I was thinking about getting bigger 700X28 tires, but the factory tires look to be very good quality and adequate size. And the smaller tires allow for easier removal of the wheels through the brake pads.3. It has a handy kickstand.4. Both front and rear wheels are quick release.5. I put the chain on and both front and rear shifters were adjusted properly, and bike shifted through all gears nicely without any further adjustments.6. Easy to assemble, it took me about the same amount of time to assemble as it did for me to unwrap it out of all the protective packaging. Bike comes with a very nice user manual. The user manual has assembly instructions and instructions for other adjustments, like adjusting the brakes.7. Factory seat has memory foam feel and a good amount of cushion.8. There are brake quick disconnects that allow the brakes to be released to remove the wheels more easily.9. The break and shifter handle horn make a very nice grip to rest your hands on while riding and it is very well padded.10. The machined rims look very nice and provide a smooth braking surface.11. Colors were much brighter in real life than what is pictured on website. It is a very attractive paint scheme…with carbon coat and lime green accents on the frame and on the seat.

  4. BeautifulGot this bike from Amazon. It looks amazing. I put Continental Gatorskin 28mm tires on it and Shimano SPD-SL pedals. Removed the reflectors and boom. Look at this thing. It’s beautiful. It’s at the LBS right now getting tuned but I rode it around the street and other than the gears needing indexing it’s light and fast. Can’t wait to take it out.UPDATE: Weather allowed me to take it out for 3 rides this week. 30k plus each of them. I averaged 27kmph on the rides on crisp March mornings. This thing is fast. Claris system works well. I did have it tuned at the shop. Shifts like a dream. Worth the money but put 28mm foldable tires on it.

  5. Schwinn does right on this one.If you know the general placement of things, this bike is quite easy to put together. On the inaugural ride, she went well…did have one lockup on the chain which will need to be further tested but it didn’t cause any accidents. Moves quite fast and may even be lighter than my first specialized bike back in 2016 or 17. Even has the carbon fiber fork.

  6. A+++So far really good, i took it to a bike shop for tuning and assembling as recommended on some reviews and i think it was accurate to do that.. bike feels super light and it really can go fast.I made a lot of research before buying this bike and other more known brands with even worst parts are been sold for more than 1200$cad..Ill update if something happen later..

  7. Le packaging n’est pas très efficaceJ’ai reçu le vélo tel que l’état le démontre sur les images, malheureusement la packaging pour un produit de cette valeur laisse a désirer

  8. Great bike that needs work.Great lightweight bike. Quality components and amazing looks. But, this bike would require some fine-tuning for the derailleurs and brakes. Good bike.

  9. Great bike, small pedalsI’m enjoying the bike so far. My only real complaints are the brakes and the pedals. I feel like a bike designed for bigger people should have much larger pedals and more heavy duty brakes. I’ve only gotten two really good rides out of it, minimal downhill action, and the brakes feel like they’re already going out. A larger person has more momentum, so I think this wasn’t thought through very well. Also, I wear size 13-14 wide shoes. My feet cramp up on these pedals that are clearly made for smaller feet. Since I’m not a pro rider (and I don’t think many are who purchase this bike) I don’t think that the straps on the pedal are necessary at all. None of this takes away from the enjoyment I get from riding, however. I’ll just head to a bike shop to improve on a few things.
