Schwinn Sports Bikes

Drop Bars, or racing handlebars as they are often called, make an astonishing difference in riding efficiency, adding power, speed and endurance most people never knew they possessed. It is this thrilling experience, a new discovery for most of us, that has led to the great popularity of sports bikes and much of the public's renewed interest in cycling for excercise and recreation.

More power! Drop bars allow the rider to lean forward at about a 45 degree angle when his hands are on the upper part of the handlebar and a little lower when his hands are on the "drops" or lower bar. This "crouch" position cuts down wind resistance and increases the rider's leverage on the pedals so he can go faster and farther with about half the effort required in the upright or erect position.

Doctors say the leaning forward position lessens weight on the spine, expands the chest and lungs and stregthens muscles in the arms and shoulders. Try it -- it's good for you!

Famous doctors agree cycling for all ages is one of the best ways to achieve and maintain physical fitness.

Help Your Heart

"I'd like to put everyone on bicycles... not once in awhile, but regularly as a routine. That's a good way to prevent heart disease."

Stimulate Respiration

"On a bicycle, the weight of the upper portion of the body is supported by the arms, relieving the weight of the chest, and lung capacity develops."

Tone Up Your Muscles

"The bicycle loosens up the muscles of the legs, the thighs, the loins, and the abdomen."

Relax Your Nerves

"The physical well being which it affords you by relaxing your nerves restores your spirit by giving it back its calm and equilibrium."

1964 schwinn 11

Choose The Right Bike

Bikes have changed!

Schwinn's 1964 models, like the new cars, offer many improvements over earlier years - not in engineering and performance alone, but also in the wider variety of models and fine equipment to suit every need.

Much of the fun of cycling comes from selecting the rightbike - not just from riding any bike. If you are an adult or teenager, it's no fun to ride a bike that is too small, or a heavy-pedaling delivery type bike when you want recreation. You'll get better exercise and more real enjoyment from a 10 speed bike.

Your Schwinn dealer will be glad to help you select the model that's best suited to the kind of riding you want to do and best fitted to your stature and physical ability.

1964 schwinn 13

Lightweight bikes

In the preceding pages, have narrow tires and triangular "diamond" frames. Sometimes called "English" or "racer" bikes, they are better described as adult bicycles, a type which has been built by Schwinn since 1895.

Our 1964 lightweights are faster and lighter to pedal because of their high pressure tires, light wheels and gearing. These bikes are strong and dependable but require sensible use and reasonable care to avoid damage by abuse.

Middleweight bikes

In the following pages, have curved bar frames, heavier wheels, wider and softer tires which require a little more pedaling effort. They are not as comfortable for most adults because of the lower riding position. They are built for durability rather than maneuverability and are offered in a wide range of children's styles and utility models.

1964 schwinn 14

Many Schwinn models offer a choice of coaster brake, or 2 speed or 3 speed hub at extra cost. A brief description of this equipment is given below.

Coaster brake

Most bicycles are equipped with conventional coaster brakes which allow the bike to coast when the rider stops pedaling. The brake is inside the rear coaster hub and is applied by pushing back on the pedals.

Automatic 2 Speed Coaster Brake

Similiar to regular coaster brake but has a built in lower gear for quicker starts or for climbing hills. Shifts from one gear to the other by back pedaling slightly, but not enough to apply the coaster brake which is operated by pushing back all the way on the pedals.

3 Speed Hubs

A rear hub with built-in low gear, normal gear and high gear. Gears are shifted by a lever on the handlebar. Two types of 3 speed hubs are available. The regular 3 speed has no coaster brake, so front and rear brakes are used. The TCW 3 speed has a built-in coaster brake, but a front brake is also used with the TCW on Schwinn models. TCW hubs are optional at extra cost on 3 speed models.

Derailleur Gears

Schwinn derailleur bikes have five cogs, or sprockets, of different sizes on the rear hub and, one, two or three front sprockets (depending on the model).

The chain can be "derailed" from one sprocket to another by means of a shifting mechanism, thus changing gears. A 5 speed model has five rear cogs and one front sprocket, a 10 speed has five rear cogs and two front sprockets, and a 15 speed has five rear cogs and three front sprockets. Hand brakes are used on all derailleur models.

1964 schwinn 15

A wonderful experience

Awaits you if you haven't already tried a bike with derailleur gears. It's the most fun anyone can experience on a bike!

Fast, yes... But that's not all!

While it is true that bike racers may reach speeds over forty miles per hour on derailleur bikes, most people ride derailleurs for another reason - to save work and add more pep to their cycling. Why strain muscles when it is easy to let the gears do the work, especially on hills and against the wind? That's the real fun of riding gears that go!

Why so many speeds?

Not just to increase speed, but to allow "fine tuning" to fit the ability of the rider to demands of the road and riding conditions. With a full range of gear ratios at his command the rider can avoid unnecessary work, conserve his energy and cover more miles in less time and with less fatigue.
