Schwinn Racer Single-Speed Bike
At one time in the USA track cycling was king, and Schwinns ruled the roost. That pedigree and know-how regarding single speed rigs continues today with the Schwinn Racer, a bike built with exploring the streets on urban adventures in mind. This single speed bike features a less aggressive geometry and more relaxed handling than the Schwinn Madison, but with the same classic lines and stylish good looks as its track-bred cousin. But don't let the longer wheel base fool you, this is a bike that likes to go fast when you mash down on the pedals.

    Well cnstructed bike, steel frame and heavy like the Schwinn bikes of the 1960s. Tires are junk, prone to puncture flats regularly.

    Bike looks great, shipped quickly, great value, and easily customized to the urban look.
    Bike was shipped with a bent fork opening that could not accept the wheel axle. I bent it back fairly quickly.
    My son loves it and would recommend this to anyone.

      Comments about Schwinn Cycling & Fitness Schwinn Racer Single-Speed Bike:

      Although I live overseas I often come to the USA to visit relatives and needed a bike to run around the old home town. The Racer fits the bill perfectly. Solid, sensible, no-nonsense, low maintenance, well-built. This is my first single speeder (since I was a boy) and I have to say it is great fun. Yes, you have to stand up to accelerate quickly and yes it may be a challenge on the hills but where I use this bike is flat. The coaster brake is no problem and I would only use the front brake in an emergency. The frame geometry is tight and the ride is firm but that makes it all the more fun. In short a great ride, good value and a good product. I have been for two return rides today and finished both with a big grin.
