I wish! Seriously, first time I tried to type Schwinn it gave me many of the crazy things listed here. Geez, it’s not like it’s some obscure brand nobody’s heard of.

OK. Reminds me of a joke. Guy gets in a terrible car crash. The OR team works quickly and diligently to save his life. In the process it's noticed that he has a tattoo on his schwanzstucker that says "Swan". Due to great surgeons and doctors he is making a recovery, but still immobile. Nurse Jane is sent to give him a sponge bath. When done the curious staff asks if she found out what Swan is. "Don't know," she says, "I read Saskatchewan"

I do think Schwinn finish was a tad better, and the double wall rims with triple chrome plate definitely were better, heavier of course.

" boy, I like my Schwinn bike, Schwinn is the finest bike ". Capt'n Kangaroo knew.

I nearly posted a local find with "Schwinn" spelled correctly in the ad but the bike was actually a Free Spirit. Nothing Schwinn about it.

Would a Schwinn by any other name smell as sweet as the rose?

Can you possibly imagine what is going to happen to you, your frame, outlook, way of life, and everything, when they learn that you have obstructed a telephone call to the Schwinne Bikle Company? Can you imagine? That's what the phone is for, you shwit!
