WWayne   Commuter [Jan 09, 2011]
Strength:

Above all, weather proof. Very low upkeep and doesn't seem to get dirty.
The 23-700 tires and wheels help the speed up.

Weakness:

It is a commuter.

To set the record straight, commuter is this bike, the fun is after work.
The Schwinn World adventure is above all smooth. The 8 speed Nexus and the two crank chain rings gives a ratio range beyond belief with will spaced gear selections.
With a rack and daily gear the rig is heavy (to get up and down from the third floor apartment).
On the road is a different story. I set my cadence and away we go. Upright in a headwind or up a hill causes the view to change more slowly, but the traffic lights and stop sighs kills the average speed faster than the reduced cruise speed.
The greatest feature are fenders and internal gears. An unexpected rain and wet roads dose not soil the bike. The fenders keeps the bike and me dry of road water and muck. No stripe up my back or water filled shoes. And did I mention, the disk brakes are light on the lever and always and instantly there when needed wet or dry.
Internal gearing has come a long way since Strummy Archer.

Similar Products Used: Past bikes for this purpose was a Gary Fisher Simple City and before that a Bianchi Cafe Racer. The Simple City was big and comfortable but the brakes were weak. The Bianchi was neat.
