    My ReVamped 2000 Schwinn Straight 8

    I had the fork and rear pull shock rebuilt at Shockspital in Minneapolis. The rims powder coated Bass Boat Gold to match the front of the frame. It's way brighter in person and in the sun. I put on all new Sram X7 drivetrain, new tires, tubes, grips and Hayes Stroker trail levers. A Red Nokon cable is going on too. Check out the sweet Saw blade rotors 200mm F and 16mm R and Retro 22mm mount Hayes rear caliper.



    I got some pretty decent Niners!

    Thanks! Yeah I still take it out jumping and XC riding and take it out to the local BMX Track sometimes but I'm trading it for a Niner SS for my wife. It's staying local so I'll still get to see it from time to time but she will be missed.

    Even though, it has a completely outdated geometry, that is, along with Yeti Lawwill, one of the coolest bike, ever

    It was an Awesome bike to ride and race. The Lawill rear suspension soaked up hits of all different kinds with No fuss. Mert NEEDS to hook up with another company!

    Yeah I have to run a longer rear brake hose and the derailleur cable and put the chain on. I'll do it tomorrow and shoot another pic.
