        Great bike. Had a defective stem in one of the rear inner tubes right out of the box. Jennifer in Customer Service was great and is sending the new tube ASAP free of charge.

        No hassle Customer Service will keep Scwhinn top of mind for me next bike purchase!

            Got it used & still running strong.
            My son uses it on a regular basis and he enjoys it. For him, the bike looks "so cool", and it is the best trike out there designed to make u-turns in a blink of an eye.
            The only wish: why does it not have brakes? He wonders."Braking kills my Vans sneakers..."

              My son loved this tricycle until the pedals started spinning and he was just frustrated riding it. We took it apart and saw that it was only welded in a few places to the frame part, so of course with some use they would stop working properly. I am very disappointed, since we thought we were buying a better quality. Now we are frantically looking for a local welder to fix the problem. My son is very upset because he can't ride it. The other option is buying a new one from another brand and checking that this issue does not happen again.

                Very stylish bike which my daughter got after previous usage by 2 children. It has very low center of gravity which makes this bike really stable on the road, I do not afraid that my 2 y.o. daughter will fall down from that bike. The wheels are big so she can drive fast easier.

                I red previous comments about difficulties with a new tube replacing because of non-standard size of the wheels. We also get this bike with 1 punctured tire, because the bike was not new. So I paid only 2 USD in a tire fitting service to repair the tube. They put a patch on the damaged area and tested it with a high-pressure. So now we enjoy riding this trike. ))))

                    I bought this tricycle to have at our house for the grandchildren. They are not at our house daily; maybe 4 times a month so it isn't heavily ridden. We bought it in April, in May the front tire was flat and I had an extremely hard time finding an inner tube for it. One of the back tires is flat now and has been since June. I haven't been able to find an inner tube for it. My husband put the new tube in the front tire and he said the spokes from the wheel punctured the tubes because they were not smoothed off. I am very disappointed. I bought Schwinn because of the "name." Now I have a tricycle that is unrideable unless I luck across a tube!

                        This trike was a gift for my son's third birthday; his very first bike. He received the bike with very little air in the tires. The tires are stamped with a rating of 36 psi. One of the rear tires (10"*2", very difficult to find in stores!!!) Popped at just under 30 psi!

                        Its been a few days and customer service will not email me back or even pick up the phone. I am very dissapointed with schwinn and am running out of excuses to tell my son why he cannot ride his new bike. He has not even ridden it once yet.
