I have a Schwinn Circuit that I got years ago from my father. I'm almost positive it is a 1987 or 1988 model based on when I remember him buying it.

It is red, with white leather seat and handle bars. It has a Sante gearing I believe and Cinelli handlebar. The frame is Columbus.

I don't have pictures right now, but hopefully this is sufficient to identify it. If so, what year is it? If not, what more information would be needed.


Does it look like this? enter image description here

That's a top of the line model for the time, weighing in at 9 kilos, for a steel bike.

Here's the year's specs for 1988 Specs

And here's a story with more info

  • @RoboKaren fair call - will do so this evening. – Criggie Jul 18 '18 at 3:46

It's an 88 if it originally had a white seat and handlebar tape and it's an 89 if it had a black seat and handlebar tape. So yours is an 88.

  • Very helpful, do you have a source you could edit in to your answer? It would be good for readers to reference, and possibly to read more – Swifty Apr 13 '20 at 7:18
