Light and sturdy at the same time, Destiny is a friendly model and also trendy. It can be assembled with ease. Only the main pieces are separate, so it doesn’t feel like rocket science when one tried to get all parts together.
A Beauty to Behold
Schwinn surely created another bike with a remarkable appearance, as it’s got a lot of pink on it. It is a delicate shade, however. This makes it very pleasant to the eye and definitely suitable to individuals past their teenage. However, this is not all about it. The seatstays makes it look so special. There are multiple ones that go also towards the rear end to form the support for the cargo rack. It’s all pink, just like the rim of the wheels, but the effect is subtle and beautiful. Moreover, Destiny has a beautiful curved line created by the down tube and the chainstays that continue it.
The Schwinn cruiser frame is made of steel, as usual, just like the fork. Its saddle with springs is comfortable and resistant. Weight is not much of an issue here. Overall, the bicycle is mainly recommended to shorter people, hence it tends to be regarded as a children’s bicycle. The seat is adjustable so it can be made to suit various heights. This makes it ideal for children and teenagers. Since they grow quickly, there will be no need to change bicycles. This one is perfectly adaptable and will stay with them for a long while.
Riding a Destiny is comfortable. Apart from the dimensions and the saddle, the model is equipped with full fenders, so that the water in your path is spread away and does not bother the rider. On a side note, it is great for people who are not too keen on sports and exercising. It feels totally suitable for those who are definitely inclined to prefer the cruise pace instead of something more challenging.
Destiny is surprisingly light, a feature due to the alloys used in fabricating it. It might feel like it is for people who don’t weight so much, but this model can actually carry an adult, too. It will definitely hold well when rode by an overweight child or teen, since many have this concern. The seat is also doing a great job in handling a large person.
This cruiser bicycle by Schwinn can be safely loaded thanks to the space available in the back and the features that allow basket attachment and such. When problems appear, it is best to check the parts and determine whether there is a calibration error or a poor adjustment situation. If nothing is detected, the owner should call for professional help. For any issues it’s best to contact Schwinn directly.
