Ready, Set, Ride!

The Elm is perfect for learning to ride and having fun. Great for trips to the park, or riding on the sidewalk around the neighborhood with friends and family.

Stopping Power

Includes a rear coaster brake (reverse the pedals to stop) and a front caliper brake (hand-brake like adult bikes); easing the transition to a hand-brake-only bike when they’re ready.

Grows With Your Child

The adjustable saddle, seat post, and slack seat-tube angle make for easy, tool-free adjustments to allow the Schwinn Elm to grow with your child and prepare them for a full-sized bicycle.

Awesome Extras

Comes with removable training wheels, chainguard, and basket. Plus, the seat handle provides an easy way for parents to tow or store the bike when not in use.

Fun That Fits

SmartStart bikes are tailor-made to kids’ proportions because a better fit leads to faster learning and more confident riding – so your child can spend less time wobbling and more time having fun.
