A Swing Bike is a brand of bicycle which allowed for steering at both the front wheel and the rear wheel. The design was patented by Ralph Belden in 1974, brought to market in 1975, and discontinued by 1978. The name has come to mean any bike with a second steering axis in front of the saddle. A new bicycle by the same name has been launched by Americas Bike Co. in San Diego, California.
