Dating your schwinn
Bicycles are wonderfully simple, eloquent and efficient machines.
A few of the bikes were purchased by me, or for me, new, including the brown 1971 Schwinn Super Sport, the Trek 750, the Univega 700FS, and the Trek 850 (for one of my sons).
Even more than with adult bikes, sometimes the looks and style of kids bikes take a back seat to functional design.
Kids bikes use to often have 24 inch diameter wheels.
Unfortunately, a cruiser is an efficient design for a bike whether on or off the road. Besides being fun and great exercise, they use no gasoline, do not contribute to global warming and do not pollute.
They are heavy, harder to pedal and harder to steer. (Their manufacture and maintenance, of course, does contribute to pollution and global warming, however.) Click on a category below, and pedal off to a great adventure!
The name played off muscle cars at the time and the bikes had a look of a chopper motorcycle.
Eventually, the Stingray evolved into the BMX bike with somewhat shorter handlebars, a single saddle, and beefy rims.
BMX bikes are used for dirt racing, jumps and tricks.
