Today's modern Schwinn 10-speed lightweights and smart responsive Sting-Ray models have cone a long way fron the simple, but rugged bikes of the 1890's.
Bikes all over the world today can point to the Schwinn influence. Schwinn has pioneered for the entire industry with many "firsts" including balloon tire bicycles, electro-forged frames, expander hand brakes, shock absorbing forks, American-made lightweights, and the most popular of styling innovations on hi-rise models, the Schwinn Sting-Ray bikes.
There have been many more...but no more than the promise of the future; for the Schwinn bikes are made today by the same quality-minded family planning for the future with even more advencements in cycling.
All bicycles prices shown in this catalog are fair trade prices in states where Fair Trade laws apply. In other states, they are suggested prices.
All prices and specifications are subject to change without notice.
All Schwinn bicycle prices include freight and complete assembly...ready to ride.

When mom or dad went to the store to choose their first bike it was easy- take the red or the blue one. Today it is a much more difficult decision... filled with a sense of adventure and discovery. Bikes are different- sophisticated, some with gears , sme with handbrakes, but each one designed to fit your cycling needs.
Schwinn bicycle come in three basic styles. Each of these styles has its own advantages for certain types of use, as follows:
Desigend for smoothe handling, added speed and endurance. Equipped with sturdy diamond type frame, narrow high pressure tires that reduce road resistance, tourist handlebars, or drop handlebars for increased pedal leverage. Light, fast and easy to pedal. Ideal for sports, touring and recreational riding. Recommended for adults.
Designed for strength and durability. With sturdy frame design to stand up under rough handling by children, wide low pressure tires that absord road shock. Built to last, but slower and heavier pedaling than lightweights.
Designed primarily for fun. Featuring hing maneuverability, short turns, quick starts and stops. With small wheels, short wheel-base, high-rise handlebars and long saddle struts. Thrilling to ride, with the same pep and "go" as a fine sports car.
In addition to the three basic styles mentioned, the Schwinn line also includes custom-built Paramount models, tandems, unicycles, convertibles, stationary mdels and Adult tri-wheelers.
Ask your Schwinn Dealer to help you select the best model to suit your needs. And, finally, buy the best you can afford. Your new bike is an investment that will give you years of outdoor enjoyment. You get what you pay for and with Schwinn bikes you get the very best...Schwinn quality, for over 75 years, the value leader.

When you buy a new Schwinn bike from your local Schwinn Dealer, he will see to it that your bike is properly assembled, adjusted and correctly fitted to you so that it is ready to ride.
The saddle height should be adjusted so that the rider's leg is almost straight when he sits on the saddle with the ball of the foot on the pedal in its lowest position.
The handlebar should be set so that the grips are at a comfortable angle. This is usually at a slight downward angle pointing to the rear of the bicycle.
Hand levers should be located near the handlebar grips - but not touching them. The levers should be positioned below the handlebars at a slight angle outward from the vertical.
It's wise to have all Schwinn mechanical adjustments made by your factory-trained Schwinn Dealer. Many adjustments need special tools and knowledge. And a properly adjusted bike means more fun-filled hours of riding, and a mechanically safe bike.
Only Schwinn provides regular factory training classes for Schwinn Dealers and their bicycle service mechanics - at the factory Service School in Chicago, and also in major cities from coast-to-coast. Only Schwinn provides special tools, service equipment, and service manuals to help Schwinn Dealers serve you better. Save time and avoid inconvenience. See your Schwinn Franchised Dealer for the very best in bicycle service.
NOTE: After selecting the style of bicycle you want, choose the frame size which is closest to your leg length. The height of the saddle can then be adjusted about two inches up or down for maximum comfort.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the many variation in bicycle styles manufacturing techniques and the typees of equipment provided, the leg lengths shown should be understood as only close approximations. The best way to select the right size of bicycle is to visit your local Franchised Schwinn Dealer and "try it on for size" under his direction.
Cycling enjoyment on a Schwinn bicycle begins by selecting the bike that's right for you , then adjusting it to your body size. Bike sizes are measured by the size of their wheels and also by the size of their frames. The size of the tire will tell you the wheel size. Frame sizes are measured by the length of the frame tubing from the saddle to the crank hanger.
To assure proper fit, first measure your leg length, fromn the crocth to the floor, wearing flat heeled shoes. Now check the chart to see which models are available in your size. Once you have selected the style of bike you want, choose the model in the frame size where your leg length is about midway between the minimum and maximum leg length shown. This will allow felxibility in adjusting the saddle height. - See opposit page.
But there's even an easier way! Simply visit your nearby Schwinn Franchised Dealer. He's a bike expert who can advise you on the proper bike selection, size and fit.

Famous Schwinn Quality
Millions of satisfied Schwinn owners are telling their friends and neighbors that the few dollars more you pay for your new Schwinn is money well spent. Schwinn bikes do ride noticeably better. They do "stand up!" They don't "fall apart". The few dollars more a new Schwinn costs are saved time and again in lower upkeep costs.
Schwinn is worth more at trade-in time and again in lower upkeep costs. Schwinn is worth more at trade-in time, too! Schwinn owners agree, they tell us and they tell each other- Schwinn bikes are best!
Schwinn Quality FRAME CONSTRUCTION -Look for the "flared" sections where the tubes or "bars" join the specially designed head and hanger sections- just like the base of a tree trunk is flarled where it meets thr ground- to add extra strength at the point of greatest stress. No other frame is built like a Schwinn- tough and resilient for a lively ride- and it's the strongest made! Ask any bicycle dealer.
Schwinn Quality FORGED STEEL FORKS - Tougher, absorbs road shock better than ordinary tubular forks used on most bikes.
Schwinn Quality TUBULAR RIMS- Extra strength double-thickness tubular steel rims, five times more resistant to twist than ordinary single-thickness rims used on most other bikes.
Schwinn Quality BUILT-IN KICKSTAND- Heavy-duty. welded-on, rattle-resistant kickstands-not just clamped on.
Schwinn Quality HEAVY-DUTY CHAINGUARDS AND FENDERS- Heavy gauge steel firmly mounted on heavy, welded-on brockets that stay put and stay tight- nothing firmly to rattle or come to loose.
Schwinn Quality CRANK AND BEARINGS - Strong forged steel cranks, precision machined and mounted on precision made, case hardened cups, cones and ball bearings- for the easiest pedaling, longest lasting bike there is. Compare, and see the difference!
Schwinn Quality PAINT FINISHES- Brilliant, sparkling colors, four coats deep, every coast bakes on, and it stays on- no
"quickly" finishes without cleansing, sealing and prime coat.
Schwinn Quality EQUIPMENT- Compare the hubs, pedals, handlebars and grips, saddle, tires and tubes, gears and controls- all fine quality, to measure up to Schwinn's standards of performance and durability.
