Strengths:    Frame design allows the smallest of children to start riding a bike. My boy was able to pedal and steer it before he could a tricycle. Metal mudguards. Chain is fully enclosed. Nice details in the tiger stripes and the seat has a tiger paw embossed.

Weaknesses:    Cheapo tires. Heavy. Newer models are decontented and sold at discount stores instead of bike shops like mine.

Bottom Line:   
The bike is built like a tank. After two years of kid abuse, it still looks brand new (partly due to dad keeping it in the garage). My oldest son is getting ready to outrgow it, but it will serve my younger son too and most likely their kids. I'd love for him to get another Schwinn because the frame design is so good for small kids, but I probably won't since they're only sold in the Wal-Marts of the world now. Too bad, Schwinn has such a history. If you can find a 2001 or earlier bike, it will serve you well! The tires could be better, but at least it's easy to find matching replacements. 5 chili's for value because you get what you pay for - in this case decades of use.

Tiger this winter: what's closed when?

Anyone know about winter closure plans for Tiger? With the great new sustainably built trails I'm wondering if more of the mountain will stay open all year; seems like OTG could hold up quite well, unlike the Preston River. If the summit's closed, will the Fully Rigid/Silent Swamp/Joyride trifecta ... Read More »


[COLOR=#000000][FONT=Arial]The Canfield Brothers Balance is here, and I know many people are very excited for this beast of an all mountain bike to be hitting the trails!

Tiger Enduro Hecklers Rock

Ok, so there's lots of rock up there, but not really "A" rock, regardless, we're going up to cheer and heckle the racers. We'll have music and costumes and cow-bells. Yea, you're thinkin' that sounds a little like cyclocross, not [B][COLOR="#0000FF"]ENDURO[/COLOR][/B][SUP]TM[/SUP]! Meh, we're h ... Read More »

Tiger trials - right of way question.

The official line, not what we went it to be ;). My ride group had differing opinions on downward trials not marked. I thought signage was complete on this topic but as of yesterday it didn't seem so. As of today EMBA trail wiki is sparse too. What I know thus far: E Summit is marked as descender ... Read More »
