Review
If you are looking for a carbon road bike and dealing with a budget at the same time, the Schwinn Varsity 1500 is an option that you should certainly consider. This bicycle comes with a carbon frame which makes the bike quite light and handy. The carbon fork of this bike also functions well and offers a stable ride quality. This one comes with Shimano RD-2300 rear derailleur which offers a 16 speed gear range enough to handle the flat surfaces as well as the climbs.
The brakes of this bike function well under wet as well as dry conditions. This bike does not ship fully assembled and if you do not feel confident about assembling it yourself, it is best to have it set up by a professional bike mechanic. The derailleur and the brakes need some tune up before you start riding this bike. The pedals and the saddle which ship with the bicycle are pretty cheap and low end and you might to want to upgrade those before you start riding the bike.
Overall, this bike looks good in terms of investment. It delivers well on its promises and offers a complete package of speed, endurance, performance and reliability. The price seems more than reasonable for a carbon bike and if you are looking for a high-performance carbon road bicycle, definitely give this one some thought.
