Schwinn’s director of international sales Jeff Weiss added: "The UK holds enormous potential for Schwinn and is a key market for our business. We’re excited to re-enter the market not only with what we feel is Schwinn’s best line-up of bikes in years, but also to be partnered with an exceptional distributor in Reece Cycles.

"The decision reflects the confidence we have in Reece Cycles providing excellent support to the dealers and penetrating the IBD channels with Schwinn’s exciting new line-up."
