These bicycles are supposed to be "one size fits most" but the two different models are different in size.

The light blue one (smooth lines, #S2753) is more like a size LARGE with frame size 19" (seat tube length 19", horizontal top tube is approx. 22 1/2"). Surprisingly it has the same geometry as the male version (also 19"). An average man is taller than an average woman - thus the men's bike should be bigger, right?

The silver/dark purple bike (sharp lines, #S2699) is a MEDIUM size with 17" frame (seat tube length 17", horizontal top tube is also approx. 22 1/2" but because of the head angle the wheels itself are about 1" closer to each other than wheels of the light blue model - beware if you have long feet). The male version of this model has 18" frame.

As for my best judgement - I would recommend the light blue bike to a woman 5'3" to 5'11" tall with inseam 28-32" and the silver/purple bike to a woman 5'0" to 5'8"tall with 26-30" inseam.
I am 5'9 1/2" tall and the light blue model fits me great.

A note how to measure your INSEAM: Stand barefoot upright and measure the distance between your crotch and floor between your legs. Do not use your pant's inseam measurement since different pant styles may result in different measurements.

I hope this helps. It is really confusing to have reviews of two different bikes mixed together without knowing which refers to which.

2012 update:
Right now amazon is selling only the model with smooth lines (19" frame) in two color variations (blue, purple ice). So discard the information about the 17" bike. On the other hand for men's bike - amazon lists only the 18" model with sharp lines.

You cannot beat this bicycle for the price. It is actually fabricated in the same overseas factories that Giant builds their frames. It also is the same as the entry-level Chinese-imported Trek frame.

As for Mrs. Roberts and her problems......hate to say it, but each and every problem/symptom you described is a symptom/problem indicating a poor assembly and adjustment. You should have taken the bike(s) to a professional bicycle shop and had the mechanic there do a tune-up on your bike....all those problems would and could have been avoided completely. Chain shifting problems, chain-drop and jamming, wheel loose....all adjustment and assembley problems.

Why do I say this? I was a bike mechanic for approx. 7 years and saw many, many bicycles bought from mass-market merchandisers and over the internet with the same exact problems after the poor or unskilled assembly. Even the bikes the "real" bike shops get have to be assembled and adjusted before they are sold. So, please don't blame the bicycle as being defective, blame the root cause.....the poor assembly and unskilled adjustment of the bicycles.

I purchased the Schwinn Ridge women's aluminum bike from Amazon less than two weeks ago. I received the bike in the mail about 4 days later. That evening my husband assembled this bike and his (the men's Ridge aluminum). We bought these bikes mainly to be commuter bikes to take us the 2 miles to and from work each day. There were some minor problems when the bikes arrived which seemed to have been from inproper handling of the package. We called Schwinn and they offered to send us a replacement rim for my bike and a set of pedals and seat for my husbands. We just assumed all of the problems were a fluke and were satisfied with the high level of service we received when contacting Schwinn about the damaged parts.

The next day we began using our bikes for our daily commute. My bike constantly had trouble changing gears and there was an awful sound in the chains which I just couldn't stop. The pedal had a "bump" in it each time it passed at a certain angle (which did not hinder riding, but was quite annoying). After about 2 days the chain came off of the bike completely. My husband was able to repair it and get the bike back into working order. I continued to ride the bike daily over the next 6 days. Today (on the 7th day) I was riding my bike on the side of a major road when the chain locked up once again. Except this time the chain would not turn which prevented the back wheel from turning. Luckily, I was able to keep control of the bike and get off onto the sidewalk. I tried to adjust the chain on the different gears to be able to get the bike back home, but it could not be fixed. I had to walk the bike back home from where it broke down(about 1.5 miles away) while holding up the back end of the bike, because the back wheel would not turn. When I arrived at home my husband took another look at the bike and discovered that the free-wheel was loose and close to completely detaching from the bike.

This was absolutely the last straw for us with these "Schwinn Quality" bikes. These bikes were used for barely a week before both of them were broken down and needing major repairs (that had to be done by a professional).

We called Amazon today and have scheduled for the bikes to be picked up by UPS and sent back to them for a full refund.

We are very glad that neither of us were hurt when our bikes "malfunctioned" and are not going to take any more chances with Scwhinn bikes. Before we bought these bikes I always thought Schwinn was an excellent high-quality brand, but had found that they are exactly the opposite of all of my expectations. I would not recommend this bike to anyone.

Also, you will soon be able to read a review of the Schwinn Ridge Men's bike about my husband's troubles with his bike.
