The Schwinn Fastback carbon road bike is very comfortable, has a nice ergonomic frame, saddle and handlebars. The 104 drivetrain is a great option for Schwinn to keep the price of the Fastback carbon road bike low as it offers good performance for a great price. It would be hard to build a better bike on your own within the same budget. Having a bike that weighs in at 18.5lbs is a nice bonus. The aluminum seat post, peddles, wheels and handlebars keep the weight low but also leave room for you to reduce the weight further by replacing these items with carbon fiber alternatives.
Reports that the measurements advertised aren’t accurate. Please take into consideration the following top tube measurements: 51cm XS, 53cm S, 55cm M, 57cm L, 59cm XL.
All in all, some mixed reviews are available online however the positive reviews talk of the bike being a comfortable option for a low price. The negative talk of sticking components. If you’re able to take the bike to get serviced and or replace a couple of components to fix any potential issues we still feel this bike is a bargain. Check it out for yourself.
