Gears that go!
Put more fun, more pep, and less fatigue in bike riding- and let gears do the work! New style Schwinn bikes offer a wide variety of hubs, brakes, and gears to suit every rider and all riding conditions. But in any terrain , flat or hilly, gears are the modern way to go - and so easy!

1966 schwinn derailleur gears

Derailluer Gears

A wonderfull experience waits you if you've never ridden a bike with derailleur gears! It's the most fun anyone can experience on a bike!

Fast, Yes....... but that's not all! Bike racers may reach speeds over forty miles per hour on derailleur bikes, but most people ride to derailleurs for another reason- to save work and add pep to their cycling. 5-speed or 10-speed derailleur gears offer you full range of gear ratios so that each rider can "fine tune" to fit his ability to road and wind conditions, save hs energy, and cover more miles in less time with less effort.

Schwinn derailleur bikes have five sprockets of different sizes on the rear hub. A 5-speed model has one front sprocket and a 10-speed model has two front sprockets. A shifting mechanism derails the chaine from one sprocket to another thus changing gears. Hand brakes are used on all derailleur models.

3-Speed Hubs

1966 schwinn 3-speed hubs

Just a flick of the finger on the handlebar control shifts fron one gear to another. The 3-speed hub has a built-in low, a normal, and a high gear. The low gear is for riding into the wind or climbing hills. The normal gear is used for ordinary riding conditions. The high gear is for riding downhill or with the wind at your back. In high gear, the bike travels further with every revolution of the pedals.

Regular Schwinn 3-speed models are equipped with front and rear caliper brakes. The TCW 3-speed hub has the same gearing plus a built-in coaster brake. TCW models are als equipped with front caliper brake.

2-Speed Hubs

1966 schwinn 2-speed hubs

Schwinn uses two kinds of automatic 2-speed hubs. The regular 2-speed hub has a low gear for climbing hills and riding into the wind and a normal gear. The over drive 2-speed gear and is used on Schwinn Sting-Ray models.

Ride a bike For better Health!

  • Dr. Paul Dudley White, noted American heart specialist, explains the benefits of cycling: "We ought to replace the automobile with bicycles... it would be better for our coronaries, our disposition, nd certainly our finances."
  • ....Dr. Irvine H. Page, president, American Heart Association. "I think the bicycle is onr of the great unappreciated vehicles for good, whole some exercise that can be continued to a considerable age."
  • ...Dr.W.W Bover, director ameritus bureau of Health Education, American Medical Association, "America's children should ride their bikes more"
  • ...Former President Dwight D. Eisenhowet... "Experience has thought me that regular exercise, proper diet, and adequate rest and relaxation are essential to good health."

....President Lyndon B Johnson.

  • "There are four reasons I give for vigorous use of the leg muscles- not simply the arm muscles-and the first is physiological. We as bipeds need something to help us leep the blood circulating up from the lower part of our body.
  • "The leg muscles are very importnt. When they contract, they squeeze the veins (which have valves) and actually pump the blood up toward the heart. This allows the heart to receive more blood with which to supply the brain.
  • "This is physiological and, therefore, we have proof that it isn't simply the heart that is the only pump. The leg muscles are pumps and the diaphragm is a suction pump. So, by keeping fit, we help the heart in tis action.
  • "Psycholgically, too, exercise such as cycling- it could be walking or swimming but cycling is an especially favorable type of exercise- has a very good effect on the brain, on the mental state, and on the psyche. It's the best antidote - this kind of muscular exercise- for stress and mental fatigue. Instead f transquilizers, I advise muscular action- even to the point of fatigue, so that you won't need medicine to tranquilize you.
  • "We have a great problem today- and have had right along because we no longer use our legs properly- of being subject to thrombosis; that is blood clothing in our leg veins. These blood clots can form and get established where there is too much stasis0 sluggish circulation. This is a hazard- a great hazard- to life beacuse blood clots can go from our leg veins to our lungs and kill us.
  • "The fourth reason- and perhaps the most important of all- is that there is clear evidence now that vigorous use of our muscles helps delay the onset of arteriosclerosis which is the modern epidemic in this country today.
  • "These are the four reasons I give for vigorous use of the leg muscles such as that performed best perfaps on bicycles."

Sports Bikes...Try the ride that changed Cycling!

Drop bars, or racing handlebars as ther are often called, make an astonishing difference in riding efficiency, adding power, speed, and endurance most people don't know they possess. This is the thrilling experience that has led to the great popularity of sports bikes and much of the public's renewed interest in cycling for exercise and recreation.

Drop bars allow the body to lean forward at about 45 degrees when the hands are on the upper part of the bar in cruising position. This crouch position cuts down wond resistance and increases the rider's leverage, adding power to fo further faster.

Try this Test for Yourself...

Demonstrate the extra power you can get by riding in the crouch position with drop handlebars. Sit erect in a straight chair with both feet flat on the floor in front of you in normal position. Press down and notice the limited amount of force you exert. Now lean forward and move your feet back under your body.

Now you can lift yourself out of the chair with the increased leverage. This same principle greatly increases your pedal power when you ride with drop bars in the crouch position used by all professional riders. Once you master it, you'll never ride in any other way.
