years ago when using Google to search for something Schwinn it would ask me if I did not mean Schwann, as in the record catalogue

evidently they got a whole lot more inquiries regarding records than they did bicycles...

Sad news for this thread. Seems like one of the major contenders, Schwann, has undergone a name change to Yelloh!

My wife bought the Specialized version of that. Riding a pig would be a step up. At least she only paid $40.

I don't know if this was a terrible misspelling of Schwinn or a suggestion that this bike is a
Stingray twin. But they are wrong either way.
