Schwinn Sidewinder 2.6

Schwinn is a brand name that has already made its mark in the field of bicycles and fitness products. Many people these days prefer to ride to their office, colleges and shops, as this is a nice way to save money and also have a great workout. However, many prefer it as sport and like to paddle long distances and trails.

Schwinn Sidewinder 2.6 is a bicycle, which is generally the first choice of many cycle lovers. The brand is already well recognized for its quality and trust. Generally, people prefer Schwinn products for its durability and its ability to make the rides comfortable and enjoyable throughout.

The Schwinn Sidewinder 2.6 is one of the most adored bikes for rides through the paved and unpaved ways of the mountains. These bicycles are specially designed for the trails. They are extremely light in weight and this is because some of its parts are designed of plastic. Parts like the centre crack and the chain guard in the front are made of plastic. Apart from these the paddles are also designed of plastic. However, the rest of the body parts are made of metal, these plastic components help in making the bike light.

Apart from the shredded weight the Schwinn Sidewinder 2.6 also scores high on brakes and gears. It is well equipped with ProMax V Brakes, which surely gives smooth and quick release to saddle post and front rim. It has Shimano gears, which are undoubtedly best and provides smooth and steady speed control. These Shimano gears are well accompany the SRAM Gripshift MAX, because their smooth rotation assists in downy gear shifting.
After all these exotic features Schwinn Sidewinder 2.6 still unable to meet the high expectation of its customers much.

There are components, which need regular maintenance as they are not up to the quality expectation. As many of the Schwinn Sidewinder 2.6’s components are made of plastic, there is no doubt that the weight of the bike has reduced, but then it too has affected the performance of the product. Since the paddles are of plastic, the gripping on them is poor and causes slipping of foot, especially on unpaved routes. As the chain cover and the centre crack is also of plastic, they have high possibility of wearing of soon. The plastic saddle is quite uncomfortable on long rides.

Looking at all these, one can easily make out that the company has saved a lot of money on the product, but concentrating on price, one can say that having a cherry on the cake, is not much expensive. Therefore enjoying the ride though the mountains on Schwinn Sidewinder 2.6, will not be heavy on pockets and having a brand at less price, actually makes every deal a happy deal.
