The Schwinn Walkabout Balance Bike Review

Gene`s BMX News Review -- 03/04/2011
The Schwinn Walkabout is part balance bike, part scooter and all fun.
The Balance bikes help kids to develop the motor skills and balance
necessary to ride a two wheeler.

The Schwinn Walkabout allows kids to learn these skills on a seat with a
low center of gravity so they feel safe and confident. The Walkabout also
doubles as a scooter so your kids will get use out of it even after they
are riding a two wheeler.

The adjustable height saddle and handlebars insure a good fit.
Your kids will love the 10" chrome mag wheels.

Suggested retail about: $70.00 and can be found in mass market stores.


The Schwinn Slalom Racer Review

Gene`s BMX News Review -- 08/16/2010

* Cartridge-bearing polyurethane skate wheels.
* Features fast and smooth rolling action.
* Rumble seat design suspends racer for an easy ride.
* Zig-zag motion propels the rider forward.
* Spin the bar 180 degrees to go backwards.
* Simple assembly required.

Suggested retail about: $49.00 and can be found in mass market stores.

Schwinn On Grape Krate Crusade

Schwinn Cycling & Fitness Press Release:
April 12, 1999 - Schwinn On Grape Crusade In May

Photo - 1999 Grape Krate

Schwinn is releasing a Grape Krate bike to celebrate the millennium.
Schwinn produced a line of various Krate bikes in the 1970s, identified
by their ape hangar handlebars and banana seats.

A bit of mystery surrounds the Grape Krate—no one knows if it ever
was produced though some say a limited number were made in 1969.

The limited edition of 1,999 Grape Krates will be sold with ape hanger
handlebars and metal-flake vinyl banana seats. "We wanted to have fun
with this and celebrate the end of the millennium with something uniquely
Schwinn. And any relationship with Prince, the color purple or the 1999
album is purely coincidental," said Gregg Bagni, senior vice president of
marketing and product development at Schwinn.

The bike will be available to consumers beginning with
the Schwinn Cycle Madness Spectacular from May 8-16.

The Grape Krate is shrouded in mystery.
It was available in 1969 but only as a single speed. No wait,
200 were made in 1970 and they all had stick shifts. No, that’s
not right; the company planned to launch them in ’72, but the
CPSC decision killed it outright. Obviously there’s been much
conjecture about Grape Krates, and to this day experts dispute
whether they actually existed or not.

But regardless of its nebulous past, the Grape Krate has
now been reborn. And this is your chance to get one.

Here’s the lowdown on the 1999 special edition Grape Krate.
We will produce no more than 1999 of these special edition
"end of the millenium" bikes. The specifications are the same
as used on the 1999 reissue Apple & Orange Krates.

Only dealers participating in our spring Cycle Madness promotion
will be eligible to receive these bikes in strictly limited quantities.
Call your local dealer to verify that they are participating in Cycle
Madness. Cycle Madness ’99 runs from May 8th – 16th 1999.

Schwinn has no suggested retail price for this bicycle.
Check our web site for details and participating dealers
starting in April.

Schwinn Pro Stock SE Information

Schwinn Pro-Stock SE.

The integrated chain tensioners suck! becouse it realy don`t
make since of a round alan bolt butting up to a round washer
on the axle nut. ( Round on Round ) I have a pro stock 1 and
a pro stock 3 that both run the integrated chain tensioners and
running round on round does not hold much of any thing. In all
the frame is nice but the SE is just a sticker that says SE as the
frame is the same as the pro stock 3 ........ It is a nice frame....

The 1999 Schwinn Pro-Stock SE frame, It also looks like the
Pro-Stock 3 - in all, it is, But just a deferent sticker set........

The Schwinn Pro-Stock SE bike was made and used for the 1999
Schwinn Pro-mo Cycle Maddness Sales. It was sold as just a frame.
The only official PR about the SE is the Cycle Maddness Sale flyers
showing the yellow one as a Frame Only. The Pro-Stock (SE) was
never listed in the main Schwinn Catalogs as it was made for just
the Schwinn Cycle Maddness Sales Event.

Iv seen a lot of them show up on ebay over the last few years,
colors: yellow, white, cream, black, red, and green. In giving that
I would think there is a good hand full of colors of them a float.
-- Paint is paint and Stickers are stickers and makes it a eazy
and a cheap way to change the looks for a sale........................

The 1999 Schwinn Pro-Stock (SE) and (3) has "NOTHING TO DO"
with the CPSC March 3, 1999 Recall. The recall targeted to bikes
February 1998 through December 1998 Also The recall targeted
to 2,800 BMX bicycles in wich as of to day have been counted for.

Schwinn 1989 Predator Flatland Pro

On the 1989 Flatland Pro what pegs do you use on the fork?
The fork I have has 4 holes a upper and a lower hole for the
pegs on it but I do not know what pegs.

The 1989 Predator Flatland Pro was not sold with pegs
It did have places made for pegs to be added to it like
on the fork. Back then, Flatland Freestyle was being toyed
with a lot of wicked ideas to what could be done to help
with places to put feet on the bikes.

I did have one of the 1989 Predator Flatland Pro bikes.

I ran Odyssey axle pegs on the axles as did alot of people.
This was found to be the best way of a peg when doing tricks.

The holes on the fork did not work well on the Flatland Pro.

They where not set in the right areas. They where ether
to high or low for doing tricks. Most found this same problem
and just used pegs on the axles on the Flatland Pro.

It was seen over time some smaller people did find threaded
pegs to fit in to the holes on that fork. I think it was Wald that
made the pegs that fit in to that fork. A lot of the kids went cheep
and at that same time Murry had a mass market freestyle bike
that had a fork that looked almost the same and was sold with
threaded pegs. It was seen a lot of people around that time
took the pegs from the Murry bike and was using them on the
Schwinn Flatland Pro. I seen this at many of the freestyle contests.

The 1989 Predator Flatland Pro.
