schwinn midmoorWe’ve had a lot of fun exploring new activities as a family now that the kids are getting a bit older.  The Schwinn Midmoor is the perfect bike for Mr. Bargains- it’s a hybrid bike, great for riding on trails or streets.  It’s also a great bike to tow the kids in…although I think if you ask Mr. Bargains he’d say it’s great to tow ONE child in.  He was a little overzealous on the first outing with the bike trailer…and very sore the next day.

The instructions were great- although confusing because they include instructions for several different bikes, but once you are able to match the instructions with the bike you have in hand, easy to follow.  I would love to show you images of the assembly but this arrived when I was in Florida and you’d think my family forgot what it is like to have a blogger in the house.  No assembly photos, sorry.  The only assembly-type photo you have is the box.  Sigh.

  • Schwinn Quality saddle for a soft and comfortable ride

Smooth ride- especially key when we start doing longer trips with the kids.  We don’t need to be uncomfortable- that makes for cranky parents.  Mr. B said that the brakes work really well, and smoothly.  He’s HUGE into safety and was very, very happy to report this.

Easy to change gears- no worries about gears slipping or locking up.

What do we love about this bike? Everything. From the chocolate brown metallic finish on the frame to the leather seat, the Shimano gears, the super comfortable handlebar grips- this bike is full of luxury details at a reasonable price point.  We feel confident every time we head out for a ride that this bike will be around for a long, long time.  Schwinn is known for quality and comfort- both things we’ve appreciated already (or rather, I have tried to.  I’m not tall enough to reach the pedals on this!!)

What do we not love?  Um, nothing. Not a thing. The Schwinn Midmoor is affordable, looks great and handles really well.  Retail is about $250-300.

This bike handles on-and-off-road with equal finesse.  The light frame and great suspension work together with that gorgeous leather seat to provide a smooth, comfortable ride for the rider.  It looks good, handles great, and is definitely worth a look.

Now I need a pretty new bike to match my husband’s, don’t you think?

  • Reminds me of taking my kids for a bike ride one time when my son was a toddler. He pooped and it got all over the baby seat. Big, nasty mess! Thanks for the memory! LOL!

  • That is SUCH a nice bike. My boys and I are ready to start getting on the trails, but I need a bike and my boys could use new ones. Theirs are…old.

  • That is one cozy looking bike. I have been dying to get my own bike because I have never really had one. How sad is that?! Hubby has a road bike, but it terrifies me because it has pocket things for your toes to go in. I rode it once in college, and fell 3 times in the short distance between my apartment and his. Pathetic yes? lol

  • Mr B looks sporty! I love the details in the seat and the handlebars. This is perfectly timed because I just got myself a new vintage Schwinn (cruiser) this weekend. I love it! People know the Schwinn name because its quality is beyond and has been for a very long time. Good to see that even the new bikes are just as awesome as ever! How do you like your sweet ride Mr B?

  • Mr B looks sporty on the Schwinn! I love the seat and handlebar details! This is perfectly timed as I just got myself a new vintage Schwinn this past weekend. When people think of bike brands, they think of Schwinn because the quality is beyond.

  • OH my gosh, I love this! I have been thinking that it would have been cool to have a ride like this for when my kids were younger! Maybe I would have learned to get out and bike more! Great review

  • I bought a (cheap) bike last year- and I hate it! I’ll have to check out some better quality bikes like this because it was such a waste of money since I don’t use it! I would love to take some of my kids on bike rides!

  • OhmyHECK – I love the idea of bringing Abby in a little carrier behind me! How fun would that be? Thanks for giving me an amazing new idea for this summer :)

  • I haven’t been on a bicycle in years. Sounds like it would be the perfect exercise for Summer. I may need to get a bike now!

  • I LOVE Schwinn bikes. I learned how to ride a bike when I was about 7 or 8 on a yellow Schwinn with a banana seat. They have so much cuter bikes now.

  • Schwinns are such good bikes. As a parent I love hybrid bikes….great for cruising around with the kids but can still be rugged.

    • that’s why we went with this bike!
