Strengths:    Fast. Great price for the component set (Tiagra crank set/shifters/front derailleur, 105 rear derailleur). Nothing's failed me yet!

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
2008 Schwinn Fastback Comp. My first "real" road bike. I love this thing. It's very light (~21 lbs), aluminum frame is solid, carbon fork and seat stays smooth out the ride. I switched out the boring platform pedals with cheapo Shimano PD-540s and am loving life!

'07 Schwinn Fastback Comp vs. '05 Allez Sport

So I'm on the verge of buying a fairly expensive (for me) racing bike...both bikes are tiagra/105 and both are pretty much untestable because they're online store bikes. I'm unsure about the Schwinn frame (as previously posted) being the right size for me, it is a large frame and we compared the ... Read More »
