REVIEWS

Rarely are 100% of reviewers happy with the product and in this case with over 100 reviews posted there are a couple people that weren’t happy.

PRICE

Don’t let the price fool you into thinking that this bike doesn’t have the performance that you need for a hybrid bicycle.

If you have gone into a bike shop and inquired about hybrid bikes you might have been told that if you want a good quality hybrid bike that is going to perform on the trails and the asphalt you are going to need to spend some serious money.

You may even have been told that there are no budget bikes on the market that perform well enough on multiple surfaces to be truly called hybrid bikes.

But the goal of your local bike shop is to sell you the most expensive bike possible and that usually means that they only carry bikes that they make a decent profit on.

That doesn’t mean you have to buy one, particularly because that sales pitch is absolutely false.

There are some budget bikes out there that perform just as well as, or even better, than the premium bikes – if you know where to look for them.

Let’s look at the amazing Wayfarer women’s hybrid bike from Schwinn.

When you look at this bike you almost won’t believe the price tag and when you see that it’s a Schwinn product you have an even harder time understanding why it’s so affordable.

This bike is less than a third of what some of the so-called premium companies out there are charging for hybrid bikes.

But don’t let the price fool you into thinking that this bike doesn’t have the performance that you need for a hybrid bicycle.

There is a reason that it’s one of our top three picks out of all the bikes out there for women’s hybrid bicycles. This is a quality bike and you can see it the very first time you ride it.

In fact, one of our big reasons for putting this on the list of top three bikes is that this Schwinn Company is so confident in this bike’s durability and performance that they offer a limited lifetime warranty because it is intended to be the last bike that you will ever have to buy.

So, what kind of result you expect from this bike?

From everything that we have been able to research, this bike outperforms the competition in several areas and that’s why we chose it for one of the top three hybrid bikes for women in our buying guide.

The first and quite possibly the biggest difference between this bike and other women’s hybrids that are this high quality is the price. This bike is priced lower than just about any other hybrid out there.

But it is also a solidly made, great-looking bike that zips up trails, crosses campus or city streets with ease and is a lot of fun to ride.

The difference is, this bike can meet or beat just about any other hybrid women’s bike for quality and it costs a whole lot less.

what do customers say

Most of the people who bought this bike are pretty happy with it.

A significant number of people gave it five stars – which is a perfect score.

Of course, rarely are 100% of reviewers happy with the product and in this case with over 100 reviews posted there are a couple people that weren’t happy.

The ones who were happy with the bike said it was a very attractive. More than one person commented on how easy the bike was to ride and how smooth their trip was.

What to watch out for before buying Schwinn's Wayfarer

There are a couple things that you want to watch out for if you are considering purchasing this bike.

First, make sure that if you have a problem with the bike that you contact the manufacturer or the retail website or you bought it instead of going to your local bike shop.

Some people are taking their bikes to their local shop because they had a problem and then paying to have items replaced or repaired that are probably under warranty. This bike does include a limited lifetime warranty for as long as you own it.

Buying advice

The Schwinn's Wayfarer is really a great choice for your next hybrid bike but there is some assembly required.

The bike comes partially put together and if you can you should try to set it up yourself. The reason for this is that if you choose the assembled option you not only have to pay an extra 60 bucks you may also pay more for shipping.

If you really can’t figure it out yourself after you have tried to assemble it, you can probably take it to your local bike shop and they will get a set up for you for a small fee.

Just be wary of them telling you that parts need to be replaced or that they can sell you a better bike.

Our recommendation - should you buy this bike?

For less than $200, you get a pretty incredible bike and we can definitely recommend this is one of the top three women’s hybrid bikes on the market.

The price is just a bonus.

With the limited lifetime warranty, seven speed transmission and beautiful retro frame and design you can’t go wrong with this bike.
