I am very particular about what I buy. Some of my friends say that I analyze a product way to much before buying it. What I believe though is that you should get just what you need.
So as you would expect, I did this too when shopping for a road bike. This time I was looking for a bike that would be something like a status symbol. I got just that when I bought the Schwinn men’s Volare 1300.
I will share a little about it on this Schwinn Men’s Volare 1300 review.

The Schwinn Men’s Volare 1300 features an aluminum frame which makes the bike light. I found it a lot lighter than my mountain bike, which was a great characteristic.
With this bike, I was able to achieve speeds of between 14 and 17 mph. I move even faster when going downhill, of course.
Overall, it took about two hours to fully assemble the bike. I decided to assemble it myself because I had the tools.
However, if you do not have tools such as spanners and wrenches and grease, you should seek the assistance of a mechanic.
