I had a single speed Schwinn (yellow triangle frame) for 17 years. I decided last spring I really wanted another Schwinn. Cantilever this time.
I was at a local swap meet and took this home:
I had wanted some thing kinda big (nice to be built for ballon tires). I also wanted it to handle
good. Comfortable too. I wound up with this:
Goal was riding it to the Mpls Messaround. Awesome cars and loud music.
I went rather minimumal so it isn't a huge change. I'm lazy that way.
Some of these other bikes her have a lot of talent put into them.
But I take it for Sat morning runs for exercise.
It's pretty heavy but for a 7 mile workout, it's fun.
the best i can do is some before and towards the end of during and one near the beginning and after. my ability to post pics is really pretty recent so i may have to find some stock "befores" off the internet to show a few more
24 stretch before
24" stretch after. this is the bike i did the how to thread for on here somewhere.
hood cruiser before
hood cruiser after. pretty much the same idea as the 24" so in a way it's a before and after bettween them.
light weight stretch before
light weight stretch after. my anything goes buildoff bike i'm still working on. just some grinding and paint i think is all that's left.
