Description

Help your child learn to ride with the 16" Schwinn Piston kids sidewalk bike! This rad little ride has a sweet "big kid" look, thanks to the laser-printed seat, gnarly p-wrap chain guard and a fun handlebar number plate. Since fit is key, the Piston features all new Schwinn SmartStart geometry, a complete redesign of bike geometry that matches a kid's body type to create a more comfortable, ideal riding position. This includes a lighter bike frame for added control, smaller grip handles to match smaller hands, and a more narrow pedal position to match narrow kid hips! Other kids bikes are just shrunken down versions of adult bikes, so typically the grips are too large, the pedals too wide, and the seats are too big. Thanks to the tool-free adjustable seat post, your child won't need a new bike after their next growth spurt. Combine the great riding experience with the Schwinn limited lifetime warranty (for as long as you own the bike), and the Piston is a parent and child favorite. You probably learned how to ride on a Schwinn all those years ago. Now it's time your child does too. Enjoy the freedom of riding a Schwinn.

This bike has been terrible. The handle bars won’t stay in one place, the training wheels constantly need to be tightened and just yesterday the pedal fell off on one side. It is unsafe for my son to ride. We can no longer return it, but please consider other options.

This is the second bike I have bought and the second bike I will be returning since the bar to connect the handle bars is welded in the opposite direction. It cannot be put together.

I wouldn't recommend at all. I bought this as a Christmas gift for my son but of course due to the winter weather he didn't get to use it much right away. If so much time hadn't passed I would have definitely returned it. It's almost like it's defective. The training wheels do not stay in place and everytime we go bike riding I have to bring a wrench with me to tighten them. The bike wobbles badly because the way the training wheels are set so my son struggles to ride it after several minutes of riding. I would have much rather spent a few more dollars and got a better bike that would have been less of a hassel. The only thing he wanted for Christmas was a bicycle which he got but no longer wants to ride. I gave it one star because it would be an okay bike for a kid that didn't need training wheels.

My son received this bike last year for his 5th birthday. The bike is very cool- he thought it was like “Grave Digger”. Unfortunately it just didn’t last. The chain kept slipping, pedal problems and the handlebars would never stay tightened. They fell down many times while he was riding! So disappointed. My son is rough and tough on toys but he never even got to try without training wheels because it didn’t last. He ended up learning to ride on his sister’s old Huffy “Frozen” bike, LOL. We are now shopping around for a new boys bike that will last.

Hi Chizzy - We noticed your son's bike was having some trouble. The bike does come with a warranty and we can get him riding his cool bike asap. It sounds like there are some bearings causing trouble and a stripped stem. Give us a call and we'll get him out on the streets burning rubber in no time. Thanks, Jen

We bought this for my 4 year old son for Christmas 2019. Now, less than 5 months later, we are realizing it’s pretty much a piece of garbage. The screws loosen themselves constantly causing the handle bars or training wheels to fall off no matter how tight my husband gets them (and he’s a mechanic so he can tighten a bolt just fine.) He says the quality of the materials is subpar. For $100 we don’t expect an amazing bicycle but at least one that stays together while being ridden.

Faulty back wheel

Danielsmama - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
It is a nice looking bike that’s why I gave 2 stars but I had to take the bike to the bike shop before my son was able to enjoy his birthday gift. The pedals kept slipping and the back wheel was wobbly. The repair guy told me that the back wheel was not assembled right at the factory causing the chain to slip. I was glad he was able to fix it but I still had to pay to “fix” the brand new bike. The screws and bolts were also missing from the package to attach the front face. I contacted Schwinn and waiting for their reply.

Decent, but HEAVY

I purchased this for my 4 yr old son. It fits him well, and seems extremely sturdy. However, it is very heavy and is difficult for him to peddle. My daughter has a Huffy bike, same size, and it is surprisingly lighter and easier to ride for both kids. It does seem to be a quality bike though, just not the right fit for us.

Got this bike for my 5 yr old. He is not tall for his age, so it is a great size and still plenty of room to grow.
