And like all Schwinn bikes, the Valve comes with a limited lifetime warranty for as long as you own the bike. Teach your child to ride on a bike they'll love with the Schwinn Valve.

Q: Does this bike have real rubber tires and a somewhat comfortable seat? Looking for a nicer quality bike for my three year old.

submitted by Hollywood - 1 year ago
  • A: Hi Hollywood, Yes, the tires are made of real rubber!! The seat comfort is a rider preference but for a three year old most would say it is a comfortable seat. Have a great day!

Q: Does the bike come assembled?

submitted by Why - 2 years ago
  • A: Hi, Your local Target may have the bike in stock and pre-assembled. If you order online, we recommend reaching out to to your local Target Guest Services for assembly options as the bikes are only partially assembled. Assembly would include attaching the front wheel, handlebars, pedals, seat, and training wheel. These steps are outlined in the manual and can be done easily at home. Thanks, Alex

Q: Do the specifications include the difference of size of arm length and leg lengths when the seat is extended to the maximum? And is the maximum weight capacity truly 140 pounds? Also the size chart varies very much.

submitted by mommabear - 3 years ago
  • A: Hi Mommabear, we do not have the full range in height differences with the seat extended. Yes, the bike can hold up to 140 lbs. For sizing, the best measurement would go by their inseam length but we do give a range for height 26"-38". Furthermore we can help with any questions at 800-626-2811 Monday-Friday 8am-5pm CST.

Q: I bought this bike for my kid yesterday but the pedals are very strong he cant even move them for a 3 years old. Should i return it or is it from the way i assemble. Thanks

submitted by Senait - 3 years ago
  • A: Hi Senait, Apologies on the delay, I hope your child was able to ride the bike safely and comfortably. The initial push is always a bit more difficult then when they are already pedaling. The manual provided has step by step instructions. We can also help with further questions at 800-626-2811 Monday-Friday 8am-5pm CST. Thanks, Alex

Q: The details on this specific bike are contradictory. In one section it states it comes unassembled but in another it states no assembly required. Which would it be if I ordered it online? I really don’t want to have to build a bicycle.

submitted by Robert N - 3 years ago
  • A: Hi Robert, Thank you for bringing that to our attention. I am working to get the information corrected. The bike would arrive partially assembled. You would need to attach the pedals, seat, handlebars, front wheel, and training wheels. The assembly steps are outlined in detail in the manual as are the initial brake adjustments. You can also reach out to your local Target Guest Services for assembly help. Should you choose to assemble the bike yourself, we're available Monday-Friday 8am-5pm CST at 800-626-2811 to help with any questions you may have. Thanks, Jen

Missing Parts

1 out of 5 stars
Would not recommend
Marie G - 16 days ago, Verified purchaser
Would not recommend. We bought this bike twice hoping the first one was just a dud. First bike was missing one pedal and the caps on the valves to keep air in the tire. Target was great in accepting the bike back and we grabbed a new box. Get home to put it together, having the hardest time putting the peddles on and again missing the caps to the valves. My son was so excited to see the bike but once again disappointed that we can’t keep it. Will not be buying for a third time.

hhaa - 5 months ago, Verified purchaser
Love the size and color of this bike, purchased for a 2.5 yr old and size works well. Seat is at lowest setting but the child is Abel to easily get on and off. Only negatives were that the instructions were not clear, and seemed to be for multiple models, none of which were this particular bike, and the steering is a little tight regardless of adjustment but it may loosen up over time.

MamaMags - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
My son loves this bike. The colors are cool and it’s the perfect size for him. He’s 3 and is tall for his age. Mom however isn’t as excited about it. The brakes were hard to get adjusted and it did not come with the caps for the air valves. I am having to tighten the bolts for the training wheels every time he rides. The tires called for 40 psi, seems a bit too much, so I filled to 30-35. Overall it’s a good bike!

Awesome product! It was so easy for my husband and daughter to put together. She lived being able to help. It is easy to adjust the seat and training wheels to fit as the littles get better at riding. My kiddo loves the bright blue and green colors. The plastic piece on the from of the handle bars makes the bike look more tough but it's not necessary and is the only thing we would change on it We love this bike!!

I would like to say I was so excited to receive this product. I noticed how nicely packaged it was. Upon opening it I seen how easy the instructions were to follow. Once I put it together I was amazed on how beautiful it was. It was very sturdy, And the frame was very strong for my child to climb on and ride. The colors are very bright and appealing. The ride was very smooth and very well balanced. I would highly recommend this product.

CTownsend10 - 1 year ago
This is a great 12" bike, and my daughter absolutely loves it. It was quick to put together with easy to follow directions. I love that the handle bars, pedals and seat were designed for little kids. I can definitely tell a difference, and my daughter is much more comfortable. The bike rides smooth and is easy for my daughter to control and turn. The seat easily adjusts for different heights. The colors and dirt bike look are also great. The only issue is the plastic around one of the pedals has already came apart, but it was an easy fix. My daughter was able to learn to ride this bike in one day and now we can't get her off of it. I've been through a lot of bikes with my kids, and I would definitely recommend this one for your little one.

Bike seat & valve stem caps

1 out of 5 stars
Jaime - 2 years ago
Purchased this bike for my son and it was missing valve stem caps but more importantly there was a defect I believe in the bike seat tube. Normally you put seat inside of the bike tube and the bike tube has a slot cut out so that you can lock in the seat with the quick latch well this bike didn’t come with the slot so you cannot tighten the seat down at all it will just free spins. I know it’s missing because I bought the same exact bike for my daughter just in pink and that one has the slot and can tighten seat

Could use more grease

Would recommend
LK - 2 years ago
Installation was straight forward if you are handy, however most if not all the bearing spots needed more grease. Pedal movement was really tight. After i took everything apart to grease and make personal adjustments the bike is really great. I would say take your time assembling and lubing the correct part.

way to expensive

3 out of 5 stars
Umm Maryam - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
I just can't believe how expensive this bike is! we do like it, but sheesh! it didn't come with tire caps... which is pretty cheap. it is also really heavy for such a small bike. not fun to lug around if little boy decides he doesn't want to ride the bike home.
1 reply from SchwinnCustomerSupport team - 2 years ago
Hello Umm Maryam! We appreciate your feedback. Our kid bikes do not come stock with tire caps because it is seen as a possible choking hazard and we want to keep the littles safe! They can be purchased at local bike shops or online. Also, the bikes have heavier frames to help little ones keep their balance centered when they are learning to ride. Hope this helps!
