Schwinn bike for sale

I’m selling my first city bike and I think you might like it.

About the bike

This is a Schwinn Super Sport Road Bike with 24 speeds, built to brave the weather-worn streets of Chicago. It’s been without a rider for too long, and now it’s time it finds a new home. If you’re about 5'10" and like going fast, this could be the perfect ride for you.

Oh the places it’s been


In the fall of 2009, I moved from the suburbs to the city. Determined to ditch my car and really dig into city-living, getting a brand new commuter bike was my top priority. After a few months of research, my room mate and I headed to Kozy’s Cyclery to pick up what would be our very first city rides.

For the next year, this trusty Schwinn took me to and from the ad agency I worked at in River West. After a short while of weaving in and out of potholes and never needing to change gears, I decided I needed more of a beater. A less-fancy workhorse. I wanted to make a switch.

So began my search for my next bike, leaving the Schwinn without a rider. After landing a new one, the time has come for this Schwinn to find a new home. Hopefully that’s with you.

Bike history and vitals


During its short year of use, this bike received two seasonal tune-ups without it ever getting a flat.

It was always kept indoors. Never locked-up outside overnight. No garage punishment in winters. Safe, warm, and sound.

On September 13th 2013, this bike received another tune-up, and brand new tubes installed.
