For sale our lovely Schwinn TAIL WIND electric bike We did a lot of research prior to buying it and have been delighted with it. However, my wife no longer uses it since we had a baby so it's up for sale (the baby not the bike) So, there's lots of chinese ones about but this is made by a genuine and well-known USA bike manufacturer, Schwinn. So it's infinitely better quality when it come to the frame and the componentry - the kit list is great - suspension seatpost, gel saddle, Shimano twist-grip gears, Continental puncture-proof tyres etc etc And then there's the battery - these are a special chemistry developed by Toshiba that charges in 30mins only but without that damaging the battery or shortening their number of cycles etc. We used to use this for the 4miles to work, packing the charger in the panniers (waterproof Bontrager, multi adjustable panniers) and then charge at work for a speedy trip home. The battery probably would last longer but we never tested it as the charger is easy to carry and it's reassuring to ride home on a full tank! We did actually buy a spare battery when we bought the bike but have never used it. They have special microprocessors to monitor them and after a long while of inactivity go into a sleep mode. Out spare has done this and we never worked out how to unlock it! A quick call to Schwinn would get it going again I'm sure. The other battery is 100% A-OK This bike has lights, an auto-locking back wheel, a computer showing speed, average, odometer etc etc. The suspension is adjustable and makes for a silky ride. The electrical assistance is adjustable as you ride in three easy steps - it is such fun! The tyres are puncture-resistant ones with reflective strips on the sidewalls. There are full mudguards so you don't get wet at all and there is a chainguard so you don't get dirty. The saddle is super comfy due to having suspension and gel padding. This will fit any adult women, no problems. There is no top tube so you just hop on! The bars, saddle etc are all adjustable to fit you perfectly. Condition is absolutely excellent - everything working just fine. Local bike shop just looked it over recently and nothing needed done at all :) Check out my 100% feedback over many years and bid confidently - good luck bidding :
