    Schwinn Straight-6 info?

    Hi, anybody know where I could find detailed info on Schwinn's old straight-6 bikes? I have one and am trying to sell it and a potential buyer (Craigslist) is asking frame size?

    All I know is that the height where the top tube meets the seatpost tube is 27.5" and the crank height is ~13.25". Also interested in resale value of these bikes. I've put some $$ into it since my purchase two years ago.

    Here are the deets:

    New Raceface stem and handlebars
    Specialized grips
    Woodman bar ends (minis)
    New chain, rear cassette (9-ring), and small front ring
    New Velo seat, saddlebag and post clamp
    New tubes on tires that can be run tubeless
    Tires: Geax Lobo Loco's
    BBB pedals
    Trigger style shifters (3:9)
    XTR rear deraileur
    XT Deore front & crank
    Hayes front hydraulic brakes
    XT Deore rear hydraulic brakes
    Fox Forx front (Vanilla 125R), Fox rear shocks

    Crank height is ~13.25" and stand-over height where top tube meets seat post tube is ~27.5".

    I painted the bike myself...the red part anyway, just to add some customization. I really like this bike and it's a lot of fun to ride, I just don't anymore and am soon moving back east to Flatsville.

    Any help, info, advice (offers?) would be appreciated.

    Measure seat tube length from the center of the crank to the top of the seat tube, that's the measurement that bike manufacturers use for the frame size when you see numbers like 15", 16", 17.5", 18", 19", etc, etc.
