Rated 5 out of 5
by BigJiminME Just what I needed
I bought the Sport Tour Bike in order to do a 3 day 180 bike ride across Maine on Father's Day weekend. I needed a road bike as my mountain bike was simply too heavy. However, being 6' 7" tall, I never felt comfortable riding the road bikes with the drop down handlebars as I felt I was leaning way too far to the front.
This is one reason I love the Sport Tour Bike. The straight handlebars give me great control and access to my brakes without having to lean way over. The shifter is very smooth and it's light weight helps on those long rides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PoconoBob Great Service
As far as the bike goes it is to early to tell. I only have 100+ miles on it. However, the service was exceptional which ,I believe, is the standard at LLB.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rujero Awesome value and performance.
Like the majority of L.L.Beans bikes, this is part of the Schwinn Signature series and it's probably the best fitness / commuter bike out there in terms of bike for your buck. I looked at the Specialized Sirrus, the Cannondale Quick and the Trek FX. this bike is a better value. The componentry is comparable with the same name brands and a 6061 aluminum frame that's the same construction as bikes hundreds of dollars more. The bike is fast and nimble, and if I am ever not satisfied I can return or exchange it, which is something I can't do through a bike shop. I am a big fan of the double walled Alex rims and mechanical disc brakes. If there was one thing I would upgrade it would be the saddle, but that's an easy, inexpensive fix. Assembly was free and so will be my first tune up.
