Schwinn's Picks - Best Bikes for Back to School

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!

Schwinn Circuit

The Schwinn Men’s Circuit and Women’s Circuit is the perfect option for those 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. 

Schwinn Sidewinder

If you want a versatile bike that you can ride to class and on the trails, the Schwinn Men’s Sidewinder and Women’s Sidewinder is the perfect choice. You'll love the easy gear changes that come with the Shimano Revoshift twist shifters and 21-speed Shimano rear derailleur, not to mention the Schwinn alloy crank. Ride high or cruise down low thanks to the tool-free adjustable seat post, and rest assured you can handle any terrain with the alloy front disc brake and rear linear pull brake for crisp stopping.

Schwinn Stites

Getting to class has never been so quick and simple. The Schwinn Stites 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.

Schwinn Adapt

The Schwinn Adapt 1 folding bike is perfect for college students who don’t have much space to store a bike. Ditch headache-inducing traffic and bike to class with this convenient 7-speed folding bike and included rear carrying rack! With a lightweight alloy frame, 20-inch alloy wheels, and a convenient folding system, the Schwinn Adapt 1 is easy to carry, easy to fold, and easy to store.This bike comes ready to be assembled, includes a thick nylon storage bag, and is perfect for urban commuters and city riders. 

Schwinn EC1

Get to class quickly without enduring sweaty hill climbing and lengthy travel times with the EC1 e-Bike by Schwinn. Schwinn e-Bikes have a motor and battery integrated into the bike. When you pedal, the motor activates and provides an extra level of assistance that you control with a thumb pad on the handlebar. There are five different levels of pedal-assist for you to choose from, which offer e-assistance up to 20 miles per hour. Go electric and enjoy the freedom of riding a Schwinn.
