Re: Schwinn reintroduces the Sting ray? for 2019

I just don't get it, I think they're cool as a collectible (not that I would be interested, but I understand why some are) but to have a remake?  For what, to ride?

They are the worst riding bikes ever.

Re: Schwinn reintroduces the Sting ray? for 2019

I have to disagree.  The black one, retro Cotton Picker I think, I had with the springer fork was a blast to dork around the neighborhood.  I had a late sixties model too.  Both were fun to ride and wheelie.  Something fun for kids/adults who don't care about bunny hopping or grinding.  Plus these are cheaper than the lowrider versions on Amazon.


I keep buying and selling, so I guess I wasn't happy with the four I had left.

This seems like it’s gotta be the best bang for the buck in bmx.

Re: Schwinn reintroduces the Sting ray? for 2019

I could say it just reeks of low quality. Or I could say it just reeks!


When I find a part i need for something I am putting together and I have no trust as to weather the part is 30 years old or 30 days old and I'm being charged a price on par with the real genuine and true item. I not only have to question the logic of people with your mind set but the state of the whole hobby in general. That is more to the point why so many people that knew better just walked away. Because they stopped being "OLD" kids bikes and are just kids bikes. Where in all that does the bullshit really lay?

I’m not mad at them. Might my only opportunity to own a stingray for a reasonable price.

I remember when they brought them back in the late 90's.  These look like the kmart versions.

Re: Schwinn reintroduces the Sting ray? for 2019

Considering we are all grown men, not ten year old boys, there is no such thing as a decent bike for under $300.


ride your bike until it breaks.

I bought all three colors of the Black Friday Krate several years ago for less money than this. Wish I would've kept them all. They were pretty cool.
