Did anyone on here ever get to ride the Sprint? It looks pretty nice, and I might get one at $800. I never saw one, and got the feeling it was a limited run. Does anyone have any more information?

I want that Sprint! (or a Black '08 if I can find one on close-out)-

I hate the colors on the Madison & what the heck is with those Stingray grips?
I did that as a joke once!

I think the specs for the Sprint are whacked... $999 MSRP for a Hi-Ten frame??? Or are they serious? The Maddy is listed as Chro-Mo, so I'm guessing they didn't do a good job of reviewing the page before they put it on the web.

So, why exactly is the Sprint worth $400 more than the Madison, hipster colored rims?

This is what I saw...

"Schwinn custom Reynolds 853 double-butted steel frame and N'Gauged lugged steel fork..."

I really like the look of the Madison

You did not do a good job either:

Schwinn custom Reynolds 853 double-butted steel frame and N'Gauged lugged steel fork create the ultimate in retro styling with modern construction and durability

The new Madison look great!!! As do the others.

Normal handlebars would make the Madison a nice looking and practical bike.

For something cheap, the Cutter looks like a good deal.

Actually the Sprint looks pretty much exactly like the old Madison imo, only a couple hundred dollars more expensive...

They seem to have messed up on the specs on the Sprint. On the "Overview" page the following is written:

"Schwinn custom Reynolds 853 double-butted steel frame and N'Gauged lugged steel fork create the ultimate in retro styling with modern construction and durability"


But on the "Full Specs" page, you get:

"Frame: All new Schwinn Cruiser Hi-Ten steel frame with integrated beverage / cargo holder."

sprint is probably unchanged from last year, a madison made with at least some reynolds 853 (guessing just the main triangle) with some cinelli vai stem and seatpost and regal saddle. cranks and wheels are the same as the madison, and same geo.

Dude, its a Madison labeled "Sprint," maybe different parts, but nothing that would make it worth $800.00.

Everyone seems to think so, but nothing too terrible-
You need to swap out the 4 foot long seat post, clunky stem & bars which will
lighten it up a bit.

what handlebars are those on the madison? They look a little lauterwasser-ey. I'd support this bike just to get a chance at those handlebars.

I would like to know what country they are made in and the quality of construction as I have heard new Schwinns suck.

as in *-mart schwinns or bike shop schwinns. I know that my madison was made in taiwan, in the same factories as almost every bike in that price range.
