Dating your schwinn
From it’s very beginning in Chicago, Illinois; Schwinn’s mission has been to develop bicycles that allow people to experience the confidence and freedom that comes from riding a bike.
Schwinn believes that learning to ride a bike is a rite of passage. Over the last century the bicycles, the designs, and the riders have evolved, but our desire, to inspire biking journeys and to help people make memories that last a lifetime, has remained strong.
In the early 1960s, however, Schwinn came out with the Stingray with small 20 inch diameter wheels, high handlebars and a banana seat.
The name played off muscle cars at the time and the bikes had a look of a chopper motorcycle.
Even more than with adult bikes, sometimes the looks and style of kids bikes take a back seat to functional design.
Racers were reasonably efficient, sturdy, utilitarian machines that were heavier than road bikes and were not really "racers." While the English company Raliegh (and related companies) made many of these bikes, not all "English racers" are English.
From upright and recumbent bikes to elliptical trainers and treadmills, Schwinn® blends exceptional quality and affordability with user-friendly features and technology.
So you’ll get a smooth, comfortable workout that makes the most of every ounce of effort and minute of time.
Today, "beach cruisers" are the craze for both adults and kids creating a look and feel of the old balloon tire bikes of the 1930s through 1950s.
Modified cruisers were also used for the first Mountain bikes in the late 1970s.
