Swing That Bike: Schwingding Brings New Swingbike to the Street
The original Swing Bike didn’t last too long on the market, but people have been building their own versions in garages and backyard ever since. And a new breed of bike company is betting on the the popularity of bicycles with dual-axis steering with the young, the hip, and the bicycle-addicted.
Schwingding, based in Switzerland, produces both adult (26″) and kid-sized (20″) steel-framed swing bikes with singlespeed drivetrains and backpedal brakes. The full-sized bike is white (“White Pearl”), and sells for about €569 (~$740 USD), and the smaller version (“Orange Pearl”) sells for about €474 (~$622 USD).
