May Is National Bike Month – Get Yours at DealDash

Most children and adults enjoy riding bikes in the nice weather. May is National Bike Month, if you need a new ride check out DealDash.

Bikes are fun for everyone who is able bodied enough to walk, from the smallest child to senior citizens. Bikes are not only fun, but they are the primary mode of transportation for many people, and burn lots of calories helping you get your work out for the day while you are enjoying a bike ride. Bikes are great for getting the family together for a nice ride around the neighborhood, and fun for small kids to just ride up and down the driveway. What kind of bike is right for you or your children or grandchildren, though? Read on below and we will discuss a few different types of bicycles and their targeted users.

Mountain bikes are ideal for biking on different kinds of terrains, especially rough and uneven trails. Mountain bikes have different speeds so you can transition from gravel roads to rough trails to a paved road with no problem whatsoever. Mountain bikes tend to be extremely sturdy and are built to take a beating and still last.

If mountains and rough trails aren’t your thing, how about a beach cruiser bike? Beach cruisers aren’t just for the beach! They have spring saddle seats for a comfortable and upright riding position, and swept-back cruiser handlebars for arm comfort. Beach cruisers are great bikes for the casual rider who enjoys a ride around the neighborhood instead of an intense workout. Beach cruisers are also a popular bike with seniors and vacationers. Personally, I have a Schwinn beach cruiser and it’s the most comfortable bike that I have ever ridden, and the only one that hasn’t caused me to have a sore body afterwards.

Lastly, we can’t forget children’s bikes! I’ve never met a kid who wasn’t excited to go for a bike ride. I got both of my older children bikes for Christmas and they are so excited for Spring to be here so they can go out and ride them more often. The most important thing with kid’s bikes is to make sure that you get your child the right size. I will include a chart below that shows what size bike (in inches) that you should be looking for when you are shopping for a bike for a child.

DealDash regularly has bikes for kids and adults , and even safety equipment up for auction. Please make sure that everyone in your family is wearing a helmet every single time they go for a bike ride, no matter how short or how close to home. It only takes one second to get into an accident.

So the next time you are in the market for a new bicycle or any of the other fine bike products that DealDash has to offer you should head on over, book your Bid Buddy, and sit back and enjoy the thrill of the auction. And remember, if you have bid up the auction to the point of retail price you should go ahead and hit the “Buy It Now” (BIN) button, because when you BIN the item for the retail price you get every single one of your bids back, immediately. You can then use them all over again to try and win another auction. Good luck and Happy Bidding, everyone!

Schwinn

Everyone Loves to Ride a Schwinn

Raise your hand if you’ve been around since 1895. No? No one? Well, Schwinn has!

In 1895 Ignaz Schwinn (with a little help from Adolph Frederick and William Arnold) founded the Arnold, Schwinn & Company. Schwinn’s new company coincided with a sudden bicycle craze in America. Chicago became the center of the American bicycle industry, with thirty factories turning out thousands of bikes every day. Bicycle output in the United States grew to over a million bikes per year by the turn of the 20th century.

There were quite a few ups and downs through the Great Depression years, but by 1950, Schwinn had decided the time was right to grow their brand. In that era, most bicycle manufacturers in the United States sold in bulk to department stores, which in turn sold them as store brand models. Schwinn decided to try something different. With the exception of B. F. Goodrich bicycles, sold in tire stores, Schwinn eliminated the practice of rebranding in 1950, insisting that the Schwinn brand and Schwinn guarantee appear on all products. In exchange for ensuring the presence of the Schwinn name, distributors retained the right to distribute Schwinn bikes to any hardware store, toy store, or bicycle shop that ordered them.

Now that you know a little about the history of Schwinn bicycles, let’s decide which one is the right Schwinn for you. If you’re into the rough and tough outdoors thing, how about a 26-inch Schwinn Sidewinder Mountain Bike? The 26-inch Schwinn mountain bike is ideal for biking on different kinds of terrains, especially rough and uneven trails. There are 7 speeds on this mountain bike.

 

If mountains and rough trails aren’t your thing, how about a Women’s Fairhaven 26″ Cruiser? There’s a spring saddle for a comfortable and upright riding position, and swept-back cruiser handlebars for your riding comfort. It has super cute teal-colored wheels, and the seat has contrasting teal and brown colors.

 

Lastly, if you know a kid who has had a great school year this year, how about rewarding them with a Cosmo 16″ Boys’ Bike? Made with a steel frame, this Schwinn boys’ bike will hold up to daily use, ride after ride, and includes fenders to keep his legs dry from road splashes. Kid’s will love the red and blue design, and they will be able to take those training wheels off in no time!

That’s just a small sampling of all of the Schwinn products that DealDash has up for auction regularly. There are also elliptical machines, tricycles for kids and adults , and even safety equipment.

So the next time you are in the market for a new bicycle or any of the other fine Schwinn products that DealDash has to offer you should head on over, book your Bid Buddy, and sit back and enjoy the thrill of the auction. And remember, if you have bid up the auction to the point of retail price you should go ahead and hit the “Buy It Now” (BIN) button, because when you BIN the item for the retail price you get every single one of your bids back, immediately. You can then use them all over again to try and win another auction. Good luck and Happy Bidding, eveyone!
