about this item

Can you even believe they are ready for a big kid bike? Of all the things you have helped them to learn, hopefully biking will be something that you can really enjoy together. But first you have to get them out there and hope they are comfortable and the whole experience is fun and easy. For over 120 years Schwinn has been making bikes for kids but this is first time that Schwinn, or any other bike brand has completely redesigned a kids bike to fit a child's proportions. Up till now kids bikes were made like small adult bikes, but we know that the ergonomic needs of children are different. Enter Schwinn SmartStart. SmartStart is a complete reconsideration of all the bike touch points and how the bike can be made more comfortable and easier for your child to pedal. The size of the grips has been reduced, the gears have been recalibrated to give more power for the pedaling effort. Pedaling will be more streamlined so there is better leverage, less knee pressure and less waddling on young legs. The seat is angled and shaped for smaller sit bones and will adjust to grow with your child. (this means they won't grow out of it as fast) Even the pedals were moved closer together to better fit the real distance of a child's hip. So smart. That is why we call it SmartStart. It is the fast way to fun and a lifetime of biking for your child.

The first bike I ordered had a crumpled sticker on the chain cover and a warped basket. I returned that and ordered another. Sticker was better, but basket was warped again. Email Schwinn and they sent a replacement that arrived in good condition. The bike is cute, I got it on sale so happy now.

GREAT BIKE! Bought it for my daughter's 3rd b-day. Perfect size for her. Really easy to assemble. Looks great in person. Great value all around. NOTE --- the post on the handlebars IS NOT welded upside down as some reviewers have said. You simply have to loosen the screws and rotate the post around ...see moreof the reviewer's review

bought this bike for my 4 year old. Very pretty bike. It doesn’t look gaudy and cheap like many of the licensed character bikes. This bike looks expensive but it is reasonably priced. My daughter loves it. She also likes the basket feature. Only complaint is the little handlebar tassels fell out and...see moreof the reviewer's review

Just gave this to our daughter Christmas morning. Dad tried to put it together but... they welded the handle bar attachment upside down! So much for using it today and it's sold out of every local store so no easy replacement. WOW DISSAPOINTED!

The bike was reasonably easy to assemble and looks great. The paint is done well and the stickers look nice too. The basket was a little bent, but nothing terrible. My daughter was really excited when she saw it. Unfortunately, we're going to have to return it. There is an issue with the pedals wher...see moreof the reviewer's review

Bought this bike as a Christmas present for our daughter - 3 days before the big day we went to put it together and realized the post on the handlebar was melded on upside down. We returned it immediately (guy at Target was also surprised and agreed the bike was defective) and scrambled to find anot...see moreof the reviewer's review
