Review:

Schwinn Men’s Phocus 1600 is a great commuter bike which you can also use for hardcore biking and exercising.  The parts of this bike have been carefully chosen to keep it on the lighter side and give it a sporty vibe. The bike comes with Shimano 14 speed drive train shifters and it does a good job by making the gear shifts smooth. The Promox alloy calliper brakes are installed for shear braking power to bring the bike to a quick halt. The brakes are smooth and they reduce the braking distance significantly.

The bike ships almost assembled and very little work is required to set it up.  Although it does not come with any printed instructions on how to set it up, assembling it is fairly straight forward. Though setting it up is not a big deal, getting it tuned is!  You might have to get the rear derailleur adjusted and the brakes aligned properly. If you face any difficulty, don’t hesitate to take it to your local bike shop. The bike has a slick and stylish look and it offers a smooth riding experience.

The only major disadvantage of this bike is that it is only available in one size : 56 cm which is appropriate for people between 5’10’’ to 6’2’’. If you’re any shorter than 5’10’’, the bike might feel too big for you and this should be kept in mind while ordering this one.

Overall, this bike delivers a great package of speed, comfort and quality riding experience at a fairly reasonable price. As mentioned above, it can be used for multiple purposes and if you are looking for a high-performance and affordable drop bar bi-cycle, you should really consider giving this one a try.
