The Loop is a durable bike, built with a solid frame sturdy enough to face any challenge one might encounter on a daily commute. Potholes? Puddles? No worries.That same attention to sturdiness means that unlike most folding bikes, the Loop will support heavier than average riders with a weight limit set at 230 pounds. An adjustable seat and handlebars
As a trade-off, the bike’s weight is on the heavier end at thirty-one pounds. Still, the added weight is worth it for the feeling of safety you’ll have gliding down the road. The first man to top 60 miles per hour on a bicycle, Charles Minthorn Murphy, is reported to have completed his run on a Schwinn. You can trust that one hundred years later, the Loop will hold together at the highest speeds.
Schwinn’s attention to quality is apparent in even the tinier details. The placement of the kickstand is perfect for easy balance and a simple dismount. Built-in mudguards (not a standard addition on all folding bikes) keep you dry in the rainiest weather. The gears even have a guard to protect you from those pesky times when your pants leg gets caught, leading to a tear or a grease stain.
