Schwinn Circuit

The Schwinn Circuit is a hybrid bike that is a perfect choice for exercising or the daily commute to work. It has a reasonable price, a beautiful paint job, and functional specs.

It's lightweight gives it an added speed advantage, and increased manoeuvrability

It has a limited lifetime warranty.

It has a cozy Schwinn fitness seat, which makes your time on the bike more comfortable.

Hard to assemble. The bike instructions are generic, which can make assembling the Schwinn Circuit difficult. If you find the instructions hard to follow, go to your local bike shop to have the bike assembled for you.

Loud braking. The Schwinn Circuit has disc brakes which have metal pads. They can be noisy and annoying when coming to a stop.

The Schwinn Circuit is a sport hybrid bike. If you don't know, hybrid bikes are a breed between a mountain bike and the standard road bike. They are built using the best features of both these types of bikes to come up with a bicycle that can comfortably move on all terrains.

The Circuit has all the critical features of hybrid bikes, which include 700 by 32c sport tires. These tires are narrower than what a mountain bike would have but wider than tires on road bikes.

This bike also has disc brakes that help stop the bike quickly and safely, even in wet weather.

What we love about the Schwinn Circuit is the aluminium frame, which makes the bike durable and light. The alloy high profile double-wall aluminium rims, Schwinn vinyl sport saddle for extra comfort, 21 speed Shimano EZ-Fire shifters, and the warranty the bike comes with

Who is this bike for?

  • The Circuit is a good fit if you want a quality multipurpose bike. You can use the Schwinn Circuit for your daily commutes, to exercise and bike trail rides on the weekend.
  • It is also ideal for anyone looking for an excellent low-cost bike.

Performance

The squealing of the brakes as you stop can get to you, but if you ignore the noise, you will notice the powerful mechanical disc brakes bring the bike to a swift stop in all types of conditions. The Schwinn manual says the brakes need to be oiled and an initial alignment adjustment to function correctly. You could try that to see if the loud noise will go away.

The 21-speed Shimano EZ-Fire shifters and Shimano rear derailleur make it a breeze changing gears as you go uphill. The light aluminum fitness frame and rigid road suspension fork make the Circuit ride extremely smooth on paved roads.

This hybrid bike is also amazingly comfortable to use thanks to the handlebar, which is ergonomic and the cozy Schwinn fitness seat. The seat post does not need tools to adjust, so you can change your saddle position at any time while on the move.

Conclusion

When you buy a Schwinn bike, you're guaranteed a quality, reliable, and comfortable bicycle. The Schwinn Circuit offers these great features at an affordable price, and the best part of it is you can do it all with this bike. From fitness riding to daily commuting, the Circuit will perform well.
