About this book
For the past 107 years, Schwinn bicycles have defined the fun of cycling for countless Americans. No other bicycle has won the hearts of kids or the devotion of adults the way Schwinns have. In Classic Schwinn Bicycles, Schwinn expert William Love has compiled a wealth of information for anyone who wants to discover (or rediscover) the magic of these legendary bikes. From antique bikes to the madcap Krates of the 1960s, Love covers light-, middle-, and heavyweight models, including the famed Sting Ray. Offering a detailed history of each model, Classic Schwinn Bicycles also includes 250 black-and-white photos, a five-star collectibility rating system, and a serial number reference guide. Classic Schwinn Bicycles, the most complete and technical book on these beloved bikes available today, is a must-have for anyone who has ever owned, or dreamed of owning, a classic Schwinn bicycle.

    0 5/5 Cris Caccavale - See all my reviews This review is from: Schwinn Adult Exercise Bike Seat Cover (Toy) I ride my bike to and from work at least 3-4 days a week. When I started it was very rough. I was in pain from riding more than a half hour at a time. Since I bought this seat, I have been able to ride much longer. It doesn't completely remove the pain from riding long distances/times, but it certainly helps. I have used it on several 50+ mile trips, and it has held up very well. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 1, 2013

    Excellent Bike!

    I purchased this bike based on the reviews. It arrived quickly and it's great! It rides very nice. I'm a 38 with a back problem that keeps me from riding a regular bike. This was the PERFECT answer for me. I can ride with the kids and Hubby without any problems and without worrying about hurting my back while balancing a regular bike. The basket is great! You can fit a lot of stuff in it for a long bike ride (water,blanks, food, kites! A small sized dog could easily ride in the basket too!). Best part about the basket is that it collapses and folds onto its self so that it can be a flat "bed". There was just a few items to assemble. Most of the bike was pre-assembled, which surprised me. You do have to put on the, steering wheel, front tire and fender, the rear tires and fenders, the foot pedals, and connect the rear frame with the front frame (two bolts) and a small drive chain--which was easy. The basket has four bolts to attach it to the frame and that's basically... 5/5 Katy S. (Bakersfield, CA United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Schwinn Airdyne AD4 Upright Exercise Bike

    Rating (250 reviews):

    Schwinn

    This enduring classic is built to last.

    The Schwinn Airdyne Upright is a classic - virtually unchanged for at least 20 years (I used them at Columbia University's gym back in college in the early 80s in essentially their current form). The lack of evolution speaks to their excellent functionality. The Airdyne differs from most exercise bikes in having a large air-resistance flywheel instead of a smaller heavier flywheel with mechanical friction or an electric magnetic resistance flywheel that needs power and the electronics head to operate it. The advantages are fourfold: 1) the larger flywheel is exceptionally smooth, 2) the air resistance is naturally graduated (i.e. the faster you pedal, the greater the wind resistance and the harder it gets to pedal). This resistance approach means you organically find your level by pacing - with no need to ever set resistance manually. 3) The air resistance flywheel kicks up wind that cools you as you work out. 4) Mechanical resistance devices tend to wear out first - becoming... 4/5 Joshua G.

    Excellent product, but....

    Surprisingly, my Airdyne was delivered disassembled, and with no accompanying assembly instructions of any kind. I am no mechanical genius, and this didn't look like a job for the faint of heart in the first place. Unable to obtain any assembly instructions from either Amazon or Schwinn, I tried a local bike shop. For an $85 fee, they assembled my machine. When I inquired about the lack of assembly instructions, they told me that this was a deliberate omission, and that self-assembly invalidates the product warranty. I can't vouch for the absolute accuracy of all I was told, but I feel that I should at least sound a faint alarm.

    still the standard

    I bought one of these in 1988. It was already -quite- old, (probably from 1977, the first year it was made, which means the 30 year warrantee is -still- in effect!), and not well taken care of. Whatever abuse it took only made it a little dirty. It's almost 2007, and it's still working perfectly. The all-steel construction has kept it repair-free while newer machines go into the garbage. Different year models come with different monitors, so I won't go into that, but the machine itself is always the same: No shifting. The fan-resistance increases with pedaling speed. Arms and legs contribute whatever proportions of the total effort you desire, a very natural intuitive movement. For arms only, there's a foot-rest, for legs only, just hang your arms at your sides. (The Airdyne is not a bicycle, not a 'spinner', it is a thing unto itself, but unless road-bike technique is an issue, it will do more than spinning can do for your fitness.)The warrantee, or any other right to complaint,... 5/5 .

    Worked after I completely disassembled it and cleaned it

    0 3/5 Amazon Customer (Wayne, NE) - See all my reviews This review is from: Speedometer Action 20" W/reversible Drive Bicycle Needle stuck and registered incorrectly (way too fast) when I installed it. I took the head completely apart and cleaned all the parts. They seemed covered in corn syrup. I cleaned them all in soapy water (all plastic parts) and reassembled the head. It seems OK now. I swear it is a leftover from the 70's when I had one on my little schwinn 20". It is IDENTICAL to the one I had. Works well now, and cable is tough enough to stand up. My son had a digital one, but the front wheel spun around and snapped the tiny little wire, so we are giving this a shot as I dont want to spend 50+ on wireless versions. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 5, 2009

    No instructions. Pedal fell off 2nd time riding it.

    The bike looks nice. It comes with a lot of bells (literally) and whistles. I was super into this bike when I first got it set-up. It's simple and light. I wish it came with some instructions for assembly, but it's far enough along that the pictures on this page should be enough for you to figure it out.The bad stuff: the bike scratches super easily, but I kind of want it to look a little beat-up to deter thieves, so that might not be a bad thing. What REALLY bothers me is that today, the 2nd day of my ownership, the pedal fell off. The hole in the crank is just totally worn out, when I tried figuring out what happen, a bunch of fine filings came out, as if the thread was just totally demolished. Installing it felt totally fine, so either I'm secretly mega-strong or the metal is junk. Considering that the pedals are the brakes on this thing, having them suddenly fall off is pretty distressing! I'll be contacting critical about getting replacement crank, preferably from... 2/5 Adalberto N. Garza (MIT, Hell) - See all my reviews, June 30, 2013

    I Expected To RIDE This Bike

    I was SO excited to get this bike!!!It's beautiful and affordable (compared to the real deal) but NOT FUNCTIONAL. I am currently sitting in my apartment absolutely pissed because I was half way through assembly when I realized the Left Pedal and it's receiver were stripped! I can't screw in the pedal, and upon closer inspection it looked like it was used before - stripped down with black scuffs and dirt chunks on it.After inspecting the bike I realized this - some of the parts looked brand spanking new, and others not so much. For one, the pedal that I couldn't install was obviously pre-used and pre-stripped. The tires were slightly worn with black, dirty streaks on the center of the tread.Additionally, the front fender was bent and missing the installation hardware. The bonus reflectors they included were also missing all of the installation hardware.I know this isn't a million dollar bike, but I expect some quality control, all new parts, and most... 2/5 CriticalCyclesTEAM, August 7, 2013

    Great... before it broke

    I really enjoyed this bike while it functioned properly, but that was a short period of time. Two months after buying the bike, I noticed the pedal come loose while riding it. When I pulled over to take a look, I found that the threads had completely worn away. The pedal could have totally fallen out while I was riding it. Since the pedals are also the braking mechanism, this presents a very dangerous situation. Critical Cycles was of no help when I contacted them. The bike looks great, but unfortunately it's ultimately a low quality product from what seems to be a low quality manufacturer.UPDATE: Critical Cycles reversed course and decided to ship a new crank set. I very much appreciate their decision, and they always responded to problems quickly. Still, the malfunction put me in a dangerous position and cannot be completely rectified by a part replacement because there was potential for serious damage. Critical Cycles seems to be trying hard, but at the end of the day... 4/5 LI (USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
