Back to school is right around the corner and there is no better way to get from dorm to class than by bike. Deciding on that perfect bicycle for your back to school needs can be a bit challenging, so here at Schwinn we picked out some of our favorite rides to get you to class on time!
1. Schwinn Circuit
The Schwinn Circuit is the ideal bike for men and women who want a versatile ride that can handle both paved or unpaved paths. Thanks to the light aluminum fitness frame, a rigid road suspension fork and 21-speed Shimano EZ-Fire shifters with a Shimano rear derailleur, the Circuit is speedy and agile for quick rides around campus and weekend getaway rides. Powerful mechanical disc brakes supply crisp, efficient stopping, while light and durable alloy rims support Schwinn sport tires to keep the ride smooth as silk.
2. Schwinn Perla
With four fun colors to choose from, the Schwinn Perla is a fun way to get to class. Complete with fenders to keep dirt and grime off your school bests and a back rack for you to easily transport your books, the Perla is an all around staple for short rides to class. On the weekends this bike is perfect for coasting along the boardwalk or biking to the farmer’s market. The Perla features a steel frame with matching fenders to keep you dry and a rear rack for storing your things. This cruiser is great for flat and paved roads, but can handle a few hills thanks to its 7-speed twist shifter.
3. Schwinn Kedzie
Getting to class has never been so quick and simple. The Schwinn Kedzie is the answer to your city commute. It has the smooth no-hassle look of a fixie, but with front and rear caliper hand brakes and a flip-flop hub. This means the rear wheel can be flipped to the other side giving you the choice between a free-wheel – the ability to coast – or fixed cogs – the ability to control the speed of the bike through the pedals – so you can be as daring as you choose.
4. Schwinn Loop
If you don’t have a lot of space in your dorm or apartment, the Schwinn Loop is your perfect bike. The Loop folds into a neat little package you will never worry that your bike will be stolen again! Just fold it up and bring it indoors with you for simple storage and transport.
5. Schwinn Monroe
If you have a ways to go and want to get there fast, the Schwinn Monroe 250 is your perfect ride! The Schwinn Monroe is an e-Bike, which means it has a motor and battery integrated into the bike. When you pedal, the motor activates and provides extra assistance at a level that you determine with a thumb controller on the handlebar. The removable battery will last for miles and recharges with an ordinary household outlet. The extra power boost from the motor is enough to help you ride further, faster, and climb hills with less effort. The predictable control and simplicity of riding a bike with the added smooth power of the electric motor makes riding efficient and almost effortless. Anyone looking to enjoy the outdoors and the health benefits of bike riding without some of the drawbacks like sweaty hill climbing and lengthy travel times will find a Schwinn e-Bike a welcome recreation and commuting option.
