Early last month the folks at Schwinn released another Stranger Things bike! This time around they did a retro Predator 24″ inspired by the Stranger Things character Lucas Sinclair. That makes this the 2nd Stranger Things, Lucas inspired BMX bike release from Schwinn.
The bike is modeled after the one that Lucas rides in season three and it features 80’s inspired features like one piece cranks, American bottom bracket, chain guard and front and rear caliper brakes.
Other features include Schwinn snap-pads, a removable carry pouch, a replica of Lucas’ periscope flashlight, and a Hawkins, Indiana, bicycle license on the frame. It also comes with a lifetime warranty for as long as the original purchaser owns the bike.
The bike is meant for riders ages 8 and up or 4 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 6 inches. This time around the Schwinn Stranger Things Lucas Sinclair BMX is available exclusively at Walmart for $249 while supplies last.
Parts & Specs:
The Lucas Sinclair edition Predator is pretty much the same model as Schwinn’s retro SX1000 24. So I’m willing to bet the parts and specs are similar too. This list below are the specs from the SX1000, obviously the seat post is different 😉

While the new bike is the third in the Schwinn x Stranger Things series, it’s the fourth collaboration with Netflix for Pacific Cycle. Pacific is also the parent company to Mongoose Bicycles. Mongoose did a Stranger Things bike based off the one MAX MAYFIELD rode in season 3. The bike was inspired by the classic Mongoose Moto Mag bike. That thing sold like hot cakes!
With Stranger Things season 4 on the way, hopefully we’ll see more retro inspired BMX bikes from Schwinn and Mongoose!
