Schwinn Design Remakes Classis Frame From 1955
 
06/12/2002
Remember the Schwinn Twinn and Town & Country tandems? The glory days are back, this time under the guise of the new Schwinn Tango tandem, based on the classic Schwinn cantilever frame design.

Features include Schwinn unicrown fork, 7-speed Shimano Revo twist shifting and Mega-Range gearing, linear-pull brakes, whitewall Schwinn Typhoon balloon tires, swept-back steel Cruiser handlebars, ultra-comfortable Schwinn Sofa spring saddles and full-length chainguard. Manufacturer’s suggested retail price: $549.95.

“This is the first time Schwinn has offered a Cruiser tandem since the popular Twinn models of the 1970s," said Lance Bohlen, Schwinn’s Director of Product Development. “Schwinn offered the Twinn Sport ten-speed in the early `80s and some Paramount models way back when. The Tango acknowledges our past while respecting available technology and creature comforts."

Schwinn Bicycle Company, based in Madison, WI, has been designing, marketing and distributing bicycles and related products in the U.S. since 1895.
