Few icons embody all that’s right with America and Golden Age and Silver Age comics like Captain Marvel. Few icons in the bicycle industry ring true like Schwinn, the well-known name in cycling across the country. Thanks to the new Captain Marvel bike by Schwinn, both are available together.
Cycling is fun, and this bike just makes it better and more heroic for protecting the environment. As a single speed bike, the Captain Marvel bike is designed for urban riding, in case the 700C tires and steel fork and frame didn’t give it away. Designed with a 46x18s drivetrain, it includes both freewheel and fixed cogs for versatility in the city.
The brakes are caliper brakes fashioned from a dual alloy to make them light yet strong. As any city rider can tell you, the ability to quickly and safely brake when someone not paying attention gets in the way is just as important as being able to properly handle hills and poorly maintained roads. To top it off, the seat and grips are specifically designed for urban travel, allowing both a sleek city look and comfort for the rider. The seat also has an embroidered Captain Marvel emblem for an added bit of nerdiness.
Riding to work or grocery store not only helps the planet by avoiding the use of a car, it also lets the rider feel like a superhero as they travel in Marvel-inspired style.
Ideal riders should by from 5’4” to 6’2”, so it helps to be built like Captain Marvel if you want to ride it.
Either way, this Captain Marvel bike is perfect for Marvel fans, Captain Marvel fans, and fans of cycling.
Also, we’re totally planning to add this to our mega geek gifts list later this week!
