I really don't care that Schwinn was sold to Pacific. I mean it's just a brand name. No big deal. No REAL Schwinns have been built for nearly 10 years anyway. Not since the Schwinn family sold the name (if you want a real Schwinn they are now called Waterfords, a company formed by ex-schwinn employees in the old factory).
But what does bother me is that many uninformed adults will see Schwinns at toy/department stores. And because they don't know they are actually just rebadged crap, they will buy them thinking that Schwinn is still the same quality brand as before. That's exactly what happened (and still happens) with Mongoose.
