What Has Happened to Schwinn?

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know what is happening to the Schwinn brand.

 

They have not had any high end bikes for both road and mountain bike for the last two years.

 

They seemed to have dropped the Paramount and Peloton carbon bikes and the Moab, which was their high end race mtb bike is only supplied with entry level part.

 

They don't have any full suspension or 29ers listed on their website either, only entry level hardtails.

They seem to have focus on the recreational cycling market with a lot of cruisers, etc.

 

I also read somewhere as they are owned together with Cannondale, GT and Mongoose by Dorel that the top end of the market will be catered for by Cannondale and GT offerings.

It's a big pity, because they had some good bikes. On that subject, they have some really good bargains going on Obike. They have a Paramount 8 with Ultegra for R14 000 and R29 000 will buy you a Paramount 9 with Dura Ace 7900 and Mavic R-Sys wheels

Yes - Obike has got some seriously good specials at the moment.
