    Which Would You Choose Between The Two?

    A Schwinn Sierra cromoly frame and fork or Performance Tangent cromoly frame and fork?
    Which would be best in your opinion and why?

    Depends on the use its intended for . Look at the geometry and decide which is best suited for you . This is assuming they are of equal condition . Which one fits the best ?

    The two are f/f sets, so I can't try them out. I tried to look up some info on the web but can't find out anything. I know they are pretty old, but don't know what years they are.
    As far as the intended use, I plan on riding a paved bike path mostly, but want to be able to get in the dirt, do some trails, and do some jumping on it. Eventually I might put some suspension on the front.

    Niether one of them are likely to be suitable for suspension or built for jumping . You would probably be better off with one of the newer offerings that are designed for suspension forks .

    Actually it is a non-issue now. My bro hooked me up with a Gary Fisher Mamba he got in the mid-/ late- 90s with front suspension. All cromoly, designed and made in the USA.
    A little cleaning up, lube job, new chain and grips, and I will be ready to roll. And it fits me way better than the Diamondback Traverse I am riding now.
    Thanks for all the input people.
