Schwinn sizing up the retro scene

6 10 2018

We have commented on the retro trend a number of times over the past few years…and this trend is  showing no signs of abating.

Legacy BMX brands, one after the other, are seeing what a cash cow that retro bikes can be.

As one industry insider put it to me a while back, “we’re pulling at the heartstrings to open the purse strings”.

Schwinn is latest brand to get on this bandwagon.

For more on this, check out the pictures of the 24″ Schwinn SX-1000 that started floating around the interwebs this past week. They’ve garnered a lot of attention.

Word on the street is that model isn’t available in North America at the moment but it’s a current option in one of the other countries Schwinn serves.

It certainly hits all the right notes for a retro cruiser: frame gusset, laidback seatpost, caliper brakes and tanwall tires.

Fingers crossed, we’ll see this bike make it’s way to our shores some time soon.

Caliper brakes, though?? Do retro nuts really need them?
