Schwinn Girls 18-inch Mythic Bike Review (Pacific Cycle)

Schwinn Girls 18-inch Mythic Bike
What It Is

The Schwinn 18-inch Mythic Bike is a sweet ride for sweet girls. This single-speed bike has lots of pretty details, such as diamond-patterned flair, a rainbow basket, tassels, coordinating painted details, and a printed seat. 

But it doesn't just look nice. It's also a nice way to help a child learn to ride a bike. That's because it's part of Schwinn's new SmartStart bike line designed to help kids learn to ride a bike quickly and safely. The company says that its SmartStart bikes provide a fun bike-riding experience instead of a frustrating one. That's because this bike, like all the SmartStart bikes, has narrower pedal positions that match the width of a child's hips. The smaller grips on the handlebars also make it easier for small hands to hold and steer the bike, while the tool-free adjustable seat post matches and supports a child's proportions. 

Plus, the Mythic bike comes with removable training wheels, and a rear coaster brake with handbrakes on the handlebars.

Is It Fun?
What's nice about this bike, aside from its pretty styling, is that a child doesn't have to grow into it. The Mythic bike may look like a basic bike with training wheels, but unlike other bikes for kids, it has a very specific design so that when a child sits on the bike to learn to ride, the ride is a little more comfortable and gives kids the ability to balance and control the bike a little easier. And if girls have a good experience learning to ride the bike, they'll actually want to ride the bike, which is a definite win for parents who want their kids to spend more time being active outdoors.
Who It’s For

The Schwinn Girls 18-inch Mythic Bike is for ages 8 and up, and is designed to fit riders between 42 and 52 inches tall. The styling of the bike is definitely geared more toward girl cyclists.
