I have been surfing the Schwinn site for the "perfect PINK Cruiser", (I am a breast cancer advocate, so I love to "pink out"). MISSY (my bike) won the 1-year search "hands down". The bike I have has "lots and lots of Hawaiian Lotus Blossoms" all over the lower and middle frames. I received at least 5 compliments in the store before I ever got out of the door. Everywhere she goes...people love her, but most importantly -- I LOVE HER!! I love to ride down by the water, and she gets me there;. We have been "blowing in the wind" for 3 days now; wow...it's been grand. I am 54 years old, and it has been at least 24 years since I owned and rode my last Schwinn bike. SCHWINNS ROCK!!!
I purchased the bike online and I did not have an option to have it built. When I received the bike - the box was destroyrf - heavily damaged ans retaped. I began to build it and there were serveral pieces missing or heavily damaged. I tried calling serveral times to the company that it came from and I kept being hung up on. When I finally spoke with someone, they told me that the bike was new and that I would need to wait for the parts because they did not have them in stock. When I asked how long, they gave me a vague answer. I waited two weeks and called again - still having the same calling problems. When I finally reached someone, I explained the problem and they blamed the delivery service for the way the box was delivered to me. I asked if they had an ETA on the parts and again - a vague answer. A month or so - that is what stated to me. This was a birthday gift for my daugther, her birthday was in August and she still has not been able to enjoy her bike. I am very upset with the lack of professionalism and the lack of empathy Sears and the company the bike comes from. I will never again shop at either places, unless I am looking to have rude and uncaring service.
Last time I buy any brand bike made in China! Schwinn of yesteryear are not the Schwinn today. It's been over 3 month's since I got the bike and my Wife has been unable to ride it due to defects! Rear Axle bent and both tire tubes arrived with punctures. Bike is guaranteed and Pacific Cycles sends parts free, but takes a long time, then the labor. Now waiting on another tube, since one of the replacements arrived punctured! All these bikes are completely worthless and POS's! Should have just repaired her old bike, but did not want to mess with it. Now I'm playing with this new bike even more and STILL have yet to ride it! DO NOT BUY! Go find a decent USA, Japanese or Euro bike and spend the extra money! These Chinese bikes are unsafe as well, if/when you ever get to use it?
I ordered a pink Woman's Cruiser 26 " pink bike for Christmas for a gift. When I went to pick it up, it was green and blue. Wrong color.
I purchased this bike for my daughter. She fell in love with this bike. She likes that it is easy to ride and is very comfortable. I have to get her inside the house because she wants to ride it all the time. I was also looking at the women's huffy cruiser bike; however, it was not as comfortable due to the style of handlebars. This bike is high quality and requires minimal maintenance.
I purchased this bike at a great price (price drop by Kmart). The only problem was that the upc would not scan and I had to wait until they cleared it up.
