This has been perfect for my almost 5 year old. We had bought a cheaper bike from another retailer that broke apart. Lesson learned, you get what you pay for, and the quality of this bike is worth paying!

This was very easy to assemble and took about 30 minutes. Not sure why others had problems - and NO, the handlebars are not backwards! You loosen the top bolt and they flip down to install on the bike. They are packed in that position to fit in the box!!! My grandson is going to have so much fun with his new bike!

Bad directions

Cooper53015 - 6 months ago
Nice bike once you realize the directions do not match the bike itself. Pretty much had to put it together by just guessing because the directions were way way way off. Maybe an older version? schwinn needs to do a major update for the directions and make it user friendly… and correct. Otherwise it’s a good bike.

Hi there: We appreciate your review! Our instruction manuals are for the general type of bike you have; they are not model-specific. Thanks so much for this helpful feedback!

Two Left Pedals

Display Name - 10 months ago
The bike came with two left Pedals-- and the one that says "right" won't screw properly because its really a left. My son is crying now at 9 pm at night - wanting to go to Target and get a new bike. So disappointing. I should have read the reviews that have endless comments about missing parts. Target please assist us in getting the right pedal.

This really is not a great product. Some minor issues with assembly but once put together it was soo hard to pedal- the chain had to be loosened. The bike just doesn’t seem to sit straight. Seat already has ripped. Just unimpressed overall

Nice bike just annoying because training wheel bolt keeps loosening up after riding. Also, some of the bike pieces that were already pieced together was put together the wrong way so it was confusing when trying to put together.

Ok bike, assembly instruction wordy

Chnapp - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
Bike looks great and box arrived in ok condition. Assembly instructions are a bit wordy and don’t match up to the photos. It wasn’t until we were over half way done, did se realize that the remaining pieces were not the exact pieces as shown in the instructions. We were also missing a lug nut. Bike seems to work well for now for our 3 year and fits his height/weight but we are still a little skeptical about safety on this bike.

Steve - 2 years ago
My 2yr old at the time received this bike as a gift from his Grandfather May 2021 and it was too large for him. We stored it in the basement and took it out this past weekend and noticed the seat shrunk and split in 3 areas. I contacted Schwinn and they told me "The seat is a wearable part that has a 30 day warranty". Wearable, the bike was never used. They told me I can purchase a new one. If I buy the new part, will that shrink and crack in a few months also? The bike was never used and it cracked under no wear and tear conditions, how long will it last when my son starts using it? Little upsetting the product failed with no use and Schwinn will not stand behind a product. It's not the cost, it's just it was never used, it's a matter of principle and sometime a manufacture should just do the right thing. I tried uploading pics but I this website says it "your file could not be uploaded. I was trying to post pics of the seat and the condition of the bike and if you look at the tires you can tell it was never used.
