Schwinn Crest Urban Women's Hybrid Bike (700c Wheels)
The Crest Urban is a Women's Hybrid Bike that is manufactured by the Schwinn company. For those who are interested in a quick lesson on Bike lingo, Women's Bikes (or Ladies Bikes) sport what is known as a step through frame. As the story goes, they were made so that when women wore skirts while on their bicycles, they would be free from embarrassing accidents. Now a days, they are used by people of any gender because of the relative ease of boarding. Hybrid Bikes like Schwinn Crest Urban are a combination Road Bike and a Mountain Bike. They usually have a triple crank and handle bars that are standard with many Mountain Bike., but they posses wheels, often 700c in diameter for higher speeds, from Road bikes. Hybrid Bikes are great all-purpose vehicles because they are well-suited to many different types of surfaces like, trails and paved or unpaved roads.
Whether you're commuting to work or enjoying the scenery around town, the Schwinn Crest Urban Women's Hybrid Bike provides a comfortable and relatively smooth ride. The Crest is outfitted with a 17-inch aluminum hybrid frame and an SR Suntour front suspension fork, helping the bike hold up to shocks from bumpy or rough terrain. The Shimano TX-31 rear derailleur and SRAM 21-speed grip shifters, meanwhile, give you a host of gear options for flat or hilly rides.
One of the most raved about featured on the Schwinn Crest Urban are the 700cc rims and 700 x 38c hybrid tires, which are thinner than mountain bike tires but sturdier than most road bike options. Other features include an SR Suntour front derailleur, an alloy adjustable stem with a 30mm rise comfort bar, and alloy linear pull brakes.
