So my wife has recently taken a liking to riding but she is only really interested in gravel and greenways and the like. Neither of my two bikes are really ideal for this kind of riding. A low long and slack 150mm travel (1275mm wheelbase with a 64deg head angle) Ragley Big Wig (which currently has a Maxxis Minion up front) or a 20in Sunday Soundwave. I could just buy a gravel bike but where is the fun in that and I want something cheaper so that I am not super worried about locking it up in town. I recently bought a Schwinn High Plains frame and fork off eBay that seems like it should fit pretty well for this. Made with True Temper tubing that I believe is made in the USA. It is a little scuffed up but the stock paint job has these neat little topographic map like lines running in it. The plan. Convert to drop bar using some wide gravel bars (probably On One Midges) and one of those threadless converters and high rise stem to get the bars up fairly high so I can actually get into the drops without being super hunched over. Run it single speed using an AbsoluteBlack oval chain ring, 10spd chain and DMR STS chain tensioner I have laying around. Need to get my hands on a saddle, wheels, V-brakes and cranks. Once I see if the fit will work I will probably swap the stem to a Velo Orange Cigne stem. The bike will see a mix of greenway, gravel and light singletrack.
