Why Torch Brazed Frames are More Responsive...




Schwinn built X-tra Lite LeTour lug frames are made of 18 gauge 1020 carbon steel tubing with its original temper, Stiffness and resiliency because it has been carefully torch brazed. The frame has been heated only where the tubes are brazed into the lugs. Many mass-produced bicycle frames are heated in ovens or salt solutions in their entirely, to over 1700 F, in order to melt the brazing material in the joints. This can anneal the entire frame and changes its temper and resiliency. The result are unresponsice and "dead" riding characteristics in the finished bicycle. Torch brazing preserves the tubing's integrity for a lively ride and also permits better quality control for better riding performance.

America's Favorite 10-speed Bicycle
Year after year, the Schwinn Varsity is America's favorite full-size 27-inch wheel 10-speed bicycle. Famous for its smooth and easy riding quality and its sturdy dependability under all riding conditions. Extra-strength features, together with a forged steel stem and heavy duty kickstand, add up to total weight of approximately 38 pounds, but the Varsity is nevertheless responsive and easy to pedal beacause of its high quality, precision made crank and wheel bearings, the low rolling resistance of its 27 x 1 1/4" Schwinn Puff gumwall tires and the perfectly aligned Schwinn Electro-forged frame and driving mechanism.

Bicycle Motocross Racing ... the Growth of A Sport



Bicycle Motorcross racing is a blasting down a 200-foor straightaway, up and over a jump and into a hard hair pin turn with a berm that's like climbing a wall. You start jammin' and bunny-hop through a series of whoop-de-doo's and then it's the fight for the finish. A swoop inside through the last turn and you've aced out the field.

It's happening week after week throughout the country- at sanctioned or independent tracks, in forest preserves and even inside arenas. It started with kids on the west coast riding stripped down 20" Schwinn Sting-Ray bikes on the trails. They would charge through ravines and down hills- imitating the motorcycle motocross stars. BMX, however, quickly became a sport in its own right and the sport has swept the country.

1980 schwinn 11

BMX today is not a backyard activity. It has become a highly organized and carefully regulated sport- not unlike Little League or football leagues. Official sanctioning bodies such as the National Bicycle League (NBL), National Bicycle Association (NBA) or the American Bicycle Association (ABA) provide annual point standings, safety supervision and other details of the racing. They make certain that competition is fair and sportsmanlike. Problems are rare and competition is invigorating.
It isn't unusual to have several hundred riders turn out for a major national race. However, the turnout at local tracks sponsored by civic groups like the Jaycess or Optimist Clubs is always very good.
Parents, too, are swept up in the enthusiasm and big crowds are at nearly every race.


1980 schwinn 12

Many manufacturers are also behind the sport. Schwinn Bicycle Company has made sizeable investments in promoting and supporting BMX. Schwinn has a national BMX team which is instrumental in the development and evaluation of Schwinn's entire BMX line. And, Schwinn Dealers also help to manage and support the sport on local level.

For 1980 Schwinn is proud to present its most impressive selection of superb BMX cycles. The Schwinn Sting and the new SX-2000 lead Schwinn's line, but the same attention to quality and dependability that makes these two machines tops in their class has been generously spent on each and every BMX bicycle Schwinn builds. Schwinn's ability to build a quality product has never been tested to such extremes as the constant poumding of Bicycle Motocross. But, in the brief history of the sport, Schwinn has proven to be the leader in the hard-fought world of BMX racing.

1980 schwinn sting

The Sting By Schwinn




The Incredible Sting Ranked no. 1 By ever BMX Magazine

Schwinn Sting

Every major BMX magazine has ranked The Sting by Schwinn as the best BMX machine that has ever hit a berm or jump. Ovalized and double-butted 4130 chrome-moly 18 gauge tubing (thicker walls at the ends of the tubes) provides more strength and rigidly in high stress areas; lightweight where strength isn't as important; a 5-inch head tube to help withstand fork stress and reduce the radial load on head bearing; tapered chrome-moly rear chain stays to reduce weight while maintaining strength; and finished like a jewel. Combined with Team Schwinn components, anodized aluminum box rims, chrome-moly handlebars, Ouri grips, and other first class equipment, the end result is the hottest BMX machine ever... and, race proven by the awesome Factory Team Schwinn riders on the 1979 NBA/ Schwinn National Tour.
Colors: Chrome with Red Trim and Chrome with blue Trim.

1980 schwinn sx 2000

Schwinn SX-2000

The Sting-Ray
The Sting, by Schwinn, was the first of a new generation of BMX racing machines. The SX-2000 bi-oval is the second. In terms of frame geometry, the new SX-2000 is identical to the incredible Sting- a longer 5-inch head tube reduces the radial load on head bearings and stress at critical head tube joints. The SX-2000 also has ovalized top and down tubes to help spread stresses more evenly and the entire main harp is light 4130 chrome-moly tubing. Equipped with chrome-moly handlebars, quick-change alloy sprocket, anodized aluminum box rims and other competition parts and components, the new SX-2000 will soon be the workhorse on BMX tracks across the country.

Colors: Chrome with Red Trim and Chrome with blue Trim.
A new competition model... conceived in the spirit of The Sting, raised on the super-tough NBA/Schwinn National Tour.
Available as a complete chrome frame set (frame, fork, seat post, seat post clamp, and head and hanger bearing cups). See your Schwinn Dealer.

Proper Bicycle Fit and Adjustment



The first step towards proper bicycle fit is selection of the proper frame. Schwinn bicycles come in a wide variety of sizes and most Schwinn lightweights are available with different frame sizes to ensure that the purchaser is able to buy a bicycle with a frame which is neither too large nor too small but just right.

A rider's proper frame size is usually the largest frame which he can comfortably straddle with both of his feet on the ground as in the illustration on left. Women can use the diamond style frame to determine the approximate size of the corresponding ladies' model bicycle. Proper bicyle fit is necessary for the utmost in safety and handling.

Once the proper frame size has been determined, the next step is to adjust the seat to its correct height. The most efficient and comfortable pedaling is accomplished when the rider's leg, while he is seated on bicycle, is not quite fully extended when the ball of the foot is on the pedal. The rider must be seated on the saddle and the pedal MUST be at the bottom position as shown in illustration on the right.
The handlebar stem should be adjusted to the same height as seat or slightly lower than the seat, as shown in the illustrations.
Note: On Schwinn bikes a maximum height marking appears both on the seatpost and handlebar stem.

Schwinn Air-Dyne ergoMetric Exericiser

Your Schwinn Air-Dyne ergoMetric Exerciser is a new and improved type of stationary bicycle exerciser which utilizes the air displacement principle. It provies a wide range of variable but measured work loads, combined with the comfortable and pleasing cooling effect of its wind vane system.

Your Schwinn Air-Dyne ergoMetric Exerciser can be used in three different ways to provide three separate and distinct ergoMetric Exerciser functions. It provides measured exercise for: (1) the upper body, using only the arm levers, or (2) for the lower body, using only the pedals, or (3) measured exercise for upper and lower body combined, using arm levers and pedals at the same time.

How Exercise is Measured?

The word "ergoMetric" is derived from two Greek words, "ergon" for work and "metric" for measurement. The Schwinn Air-Dyne ergoMetric Exerciser utilizes the resistance of the air to the wind vanes on the wheel to provide a wide range of work loads- the faster the wheel is turned by the pedals and arm levers, the greater the volume of air moved and the amount of work required to move it. Because the Schwinn Air-Dyne ergoMetric Exerciser is equipped with instruments to measure the amount of work performed per minute, it is a form of bicycle ergometer.

The work exercise loads shown on the work load indicator can be converted to "kilopond meter per minute," which is the most widely used measurement of physical work performed in exercise programs. One kilopond meter is the amount of work required to lift one kilogram (2.2046 pounds) one meter (39, 37 inches) at normal gravity. Kilopond meters per minute are a measure to work against time can be converted to other terms of work measurement such as "foot pounds per minute," or "watts," or "horsepower." The Schwinn Air-Dyne ergoMetric Exerciser has an infinite variety or work loads ranging from a low 150 kpm/minute (about 460 horsepower). The greater the speed, the greater the work load performed.
