Depends on the manufacturer/distributor and their sales policies. The LBS I deal with ordered me two bikes they are not normal dealers for, neither carried by any local dealer. These were a Swobo and a Civia. No idea of Schwinn's policy in this regard.
Many bike distributors do not allow their dealers to do internet sales. Trek, Cannondale, Bianchi and Specialized all have this policy and Schwinn may also.
