Schwinn Prelude Bicycle - 700c is perfect as a men's commuter road bike. The Prelude features a lightweight aluminum road frame for quick agile riding and road fork absorbs pavement imperfections. The bike is easy to assemble with a fairly comfortable and height adjustable seat. The Schwinn Prelude's additionally features a 14-speed Shimano drivetrain, A050 road shifters for easy gear change, 700c alloy wheels, dual pivot road brakes and Schwinn quality padded saddle for softer rides. The alloy 3 piece cranks offers wider gear range and road bar helps in multiple hand positions.

Some bikers showed concern towards the rim tape being made of cheap rubber quality. Thus, advising it to be changed or duct taped before starting the ride to avoid flat tubes. Some reviewers had to fix the rear gear cluster as it vibrates on spin of the rear wheel. The bike has no fenders or a bottle holder which is highly desirable.

Overall, The Schwinn Prelude Bicycle – 700 c is an affordable, good looking, comfortable and efficient drop bar road bike for any entry level rider.
