    Better Bike Than My Previous Dahon, May 26, 2014

    I’m age 72 and I weigh 255 lbs. The Loop’s weight limit is stated as 230 lbs. Previously, I owned a Dahon folding bike.

    The bike arrived undamaged. It was expertly packed. And I only had to cut three cords to easily remove the bike from the box.

    Unlike the Dahon, the Loop is solidly built; bumpy terrain is not a jarring experience; the seat is not too close to the handlebars; and last night I rode several miles on the Gateway Trail to Lake Phalen without getting a back pain.

    The Loop handles quite similar to my full-sized bike.

    To activate the warranty and for safety, before the first ride, the purchaser is required to have the bike adjusted by an authorized bike mechanic. I cheered when I read this requirement and I rushed my Loop to my bike shop.

    I also bought the Sunlight mesh basket and the Sunlite Cloud 9 comfort seat. Both products are well made. In my twilight years, my bony ass deserves only the best.

    This is a very good folding bike. It weighs 31.8 lbs. Using a fridge magnet to test its material components, the magnet clings to the fork, handle bars, seat post and the crank arms, but not to the frame that includes the rear rack. Out of the box, only one pedal had to be attached to the crank arm to completely assemble the bike. And it only needed a little bit of air to be fully functional. For tuning, the bike we received only needed an adjustment of the cable length of the rear brakes for a balanced stopping power with the front brakes. The bike performed with high marks from Will Rogers State Beach to Santa Monica and Marina del Rey and back here in Southern California, for about 20 miles of test ride.

    Rating the bike, it’s a 4 star because the seat of the bike is awful. For a cruiser at this price point, the bike can still be improved with a wider and more comfortable seat.

    Another flaw worth noting is that the manufacturer used a very shiny/slippery seat post for the bike. As a result, securing the seat on the frame of the bike requires a very strong turn of the hand tightened collar that grips the tube of the frame of the bike to the seat post. This can be very irritating because the seat easily slides or turns sideways when the collar that grips the tube of the frame of the bike to secure the seat post is not tightened strong enough. To remedy this problem, I roughened the surface of the seat post with a steel file. With this, a lighter turn of the hand tightened collar now secures the seat post to the frame of the bike. Still a 4 star bike.

    Great bike, good price, June 10, 2014

    This is the newest model of the Schwinn Loop, and in a better color than the green one that Amazon sells. Why Amazon doesn’t sell this model directly with prime is beyond me.

    The bike arrived quickly, Is very easy to assemble and figure out. It folds down in less than a minute, but there is nothing included to hold the tires together when folded, so you need to have a bungi cord that you can use when you ride the train etc. The brakes came loose, but after watching some youtube videos it should be easy to fix.

    For this price point, this is probably the best entry level folding bike you’re going to find. A+.
