Schwinn Loop 20" Aluminum Folding Bicycle
Now you can take your bike along with ease, whether it's your next ride to work or even a day out on the boat. This stylish Schwinn folding bike is simple to break down and store in its convenient carry & storage bag. The Loop's low "U" shape aluminum frame is lightweight, and with a 7 speed Shimano drive train and alloy linear pull breaks you'll be able to start and stop on a dime. Alloy rims are rust resistant and front & rear fenders keep you clean whether in the city or at the campsite. And its all backed by Schwinn, the name America has trusted in cycling for over 100 years.
Schwinn Loop 20" Aluminum Folding Bicycle:
I purchased two of these to put in the baggage area of a Cessna 172 and they fit fine. The price is right for this quality Bike.
I had two Citizen folders, but the peddle position on the Citizen Bikes was located too far back and made it difficult to peddle for very long. The peddle position on the Schwinn Loop is perfect. I'm 6'2'' and have no problems adjusting the Bike for my height.
I bought this to keep inside a beach condo with limited space. It's the most economically priced folding bicycle, especially here at VMInnovations. It arrived in perfect condition and I like the newer model's green color. Don't expect to unfold it and ride right away though. I had to spend time tinkering with the brake and derailleur adjustments as the brakes were way out of adjustment (too much slack and squealing like crazy) and the derailleur was not in sync with the ratcheting handlebar gear changer. Once I got that straightened out, it was a great beach bike. I didn't get much time to ride it due to lack of ordering far enough ahead of time; but I did manage to take a few 5-6 mile rides and one 13 mile ride and found it to be a good compromise for a folding bicycle. The top speed is a bit low as I could only go about 15 MPH before I ran out of gearing, but at least you have the lower speeds available for steep hills. The tiny wheels will take some getting used to when cornering (not as much cornering stability) but that's the drawback of the bike's folding portability. When I'm not using it and not visiting my parents at their condo, the bicycle hides away nicely behind a chair in the guest room.
The relationship of seat to peddles is correct and @6'2" tall, I can easilly peddle this bike. I had a Citizen Bike before this and the peddles were almost directly below, or inline with the seat. (Peddles too far back) This made the Citizen Bike difficult to peddle and hard on the knees, so I couldn't travel very far on the Citizen. The peddles on the Loop are far enough forward to make peddling much like any bike should be. I ordered 2 and both came in perfect condition. The Bikes are easy to set up and if you have very basic mechanical skills, you won't need any help from a bike shop. The best price is at VMInnovations on a very good quality folding bike.
easy to install but still need to adjust the brakes, so I have not used it yet sitting on the floor for a month now.
Easy to get on and out
I purchased 2 to store in our motorhome. They arrived in perfect shape, mainly because of the good quality boxes used for shipment. They came out of the box ready to use. I just followed the instructions and practiced a few times to make it easy to fold and unfold in the future. The only downfall I found was that the supplied covers, which are of a good grade material, are tight when storing the bikes in them. If they just made them a little bigger, it would be a perfect match. Overall, I am glad I purchased these bikes and know that they will fill my needs.
The Schwinn Loop 20-inch folding bike is a great value folding bike.
It's a little on the heavy side but it's built like a brick and thanks to its sturdy steel frame it will likely last a lifetime.
The design of the bike allows you to step through to mount which means you don't have to swing your leg over a high frame.
Front and rear fenders included, a sturdy rear rack which will host a pannier or other bag, shimano gears. It's a great little folding bike and no surprise it's Amazon's best seller.
The seat is not the best but is good enough and could be replaced easily if required.

Delivery was timely, carton was in good condition.
Brakes needed minor adjustment. Rear gear assy needed cable shortened and upper and lower limits adjusted in order to use all gears. Otherwise assembly was easy.
Due to bad weather have only rode it once around the block. The recommendation is based on very little evidence.
my mom luvs it! best price w shipping online!
Nice foldable bike for the price.
It is for my m-i-l since she needs something "easy up/down" and this is the best we can find.
The onlything we need to deal with is the font handle/wheel, seems the damp of changing direction is too small, and the manual doesn't mention how to make it better. I will contact their tech support about it.
It's a GREAT value for money. I've just had to adjust the breaks and that's it. I've been using it the since the momento i've recieved it.
