    Check Bikepedia.com for your correct color combination and look in the specifications list for the correct headset.

    BikePedia - 2000 Schwinn Moab 3 Complete Bicycle

    per bikepedia it's actually the Moab2 which was available in madnight black. and according to the 2000 catalog ( http://bonustomato.com/files/2000_Catalog.pdf ) it does indeed use the ICBM headset. the entire Moab and Homegrown line used the ICBM headsets.... just looking at the upper head tube you can clearly see where the headset seats into the the tube... good try though!

    Actually, I'm pretty sure it is a 2000 Moab 3 in Deep Metallic Blue/Silver. Bikepedia says the Headset is "1 1/8 threadless Schwinn Go Ahead" and the 2000 Schwinn catalog scan of the page with the Moab 3 (BonusTomato didn't have that page) from Schwinn catalogs, 1991 - 2000 (534 of 577) indeed indicates that it has the "Schwinn ICBM 1 1/8"". So.....I guess the proof is actually in the head race dimensions.

    This is sweet......nice having something fun and constructive to do while sitting around home with the flu.

    and if you read what headsets the Homegrowns got, they too got the " threadless schwinn go ahead ".. it's okay, it's okay, i've been wrong most of my life and when i'm right i'm right and it feels just so goooood....

    All this mean that it is impossible to find?
    To find this headset is like te quest of the grail...
    As a result, I have a frame which serves as decoration

    Otherwise, nice Christmas tree ^^

    And happy new year

    I've got an answer from Shwinn:

    We do not have the parts available thru us but I did check and here is what is listed about the particular headset.

    All models come with top cap, adjusting bolt, and star nut
    . ICBM model has beveled cartridge bearings that fit some Schwinn mountain bikes with integrated headsets
    . Headtube bearing chamfer is 45 degrees
    . Headtube I.D. is 45mm
    . Color: Black
    . Crown Race: 30.0
    . Stack Height: 13.1 mm
    . Bearing Type: Cartridge
    . Headset Type: Internal, ICBM (Schwinn)
    . Weight: 116 g
    . Material: Al
    . Steerer Tube: 1-1/8 Threadless


    Can I find an other headset with these details?

    Schwinn8- very nice pair, I have a similar set as well. Will post pics soon,.

    Cobra-nice ride, great pool too.

    Hello All,
    I have been lurking for a bit trying to read up on my new to me Straight 6. I got a great deal on CL in Colrado and had it shipped to VIrginia. i have been following CTB and bad mechanic in this thread. If either of you two are still around, I would like some info on the Fox forks you are running. I would like to upgrade my S6 and could use feedback on the optimal fox fork travel from your experience. Any info on rear shock upgrades for the S6 would be welcome as well. My S6 is bone stock.

    I am also converting my Rocket88 to SS. I plan to move the Rockshox Psylo from the S6 to the R88. At least for a while. The psylo has variable length travel so I can dial it back to 100mm which should work well with the R88 geometry.

    I will get some pics up soon. Looking forward to geeking out over my Schwinns here!

    R88R out.

    Nice Bikes guys!! There was mention of a Moab a while back so thought I would post my 97? Moab 1 I bought it new when I was working at a local shop, and just did a complete overhaul and installed a new fork. I have upgraded some things along the way, just getting back into riding from a ten year hiatus. I always liked the way this bike rode with the light weight steel frame. Fwiw I don't remember the details but seem to vaguely remember those ICBM headsets, mine is now sporting a FSA Orbit XLII.

    2000 Schwinn Moab 1

    This 2000 Schwinn Moab 1 was my first MTB that I still own and probably always will. Got it for my 12th birthday, and have loved the sport ever since. Doesn’t look like it but it actually has done many miles. Used it myself till 2011.

    Moabs were beefy frames. While they had the same Homegrown geometry, they were heavier and burlier and could take a lot of abuse.

    I recently picked up 2 Schwinn Project Underground frames on an auction site. I had been looking for one for 6 years, and then 2 pop up within 2 weeks of one another. Can't wait to build one and ride it. I don't know if I will ell or keep the other. I'm leaning toward keeping it and displaying it.

    I have 2 Schwinn Underground frames. One I rode for 10 years and cracked the head tube, then switched all the components to the other frame. Sweet ride that I'm now using like a hybrid. I can't force myself to dispose of the cracked frame.

    Here is my first Schwinn rebuild. I converted my Rocket 88 Stage 4 into a single speed. It is mostly a vintage rebuild, the parts coming from my Straight 6, ( the Psylo fork, XT cranks, DT Swiss wheel set and Hayes brakes) the only new parts are the chain tensioner and the single speed conversion. It weights in at 27.8 lbs.

    Will sort the suspension and ride soon. The only teething problem I can see is the tires. I think I will have to step down to 2.0s from the 2.2s I have on there now.

    Enjoy!

    I installed a Fox Vanilla R, which is .25" longer that the OEM Vanilla, so I had to modify the lower swingarm dog bone link a bit so it would not hit the bottom bracket when the shock was fully extended.

    More parts for the Rocket LTD

    Nice budget build up on your 88 Rocket88R

    New upgrades to my 2006 Rocket LTD, picked up some a set Shimano XT M785 wheels with Maxxis Ikon tubeless tires of Ebay to replace the original Ritchey Shimano Hone wheels after I broke another spoke. So had to replace the rear derailleur since the hones were a hub mount derailleur, Went with a Shimano XT 9 speed medium cage alon with an XT 11-34 cassette. And replaced the stem and handle bar with a lighter and blacker FSA Afterburner. These upgrades have knocked the weight down from almost 32lb to 28.4lb. full specs below

    Moab SL

    Here's my beloved (2000 model I think), Schwinn Moab SL. It's had many different custom parts on it over the years, but currently runs full XT, syncros stem and post, spinergy SPOX wheels, pro taper carbon bars, avid digit 7 brakes, and a custom set of Manitou Blacks, fully adjustable with lockout. I raced it for a few years back in the early 2000's but its sat idle in my shed for many years now, I can't bring myself to let it go!

    Here is my rocket. My dad bought it new in 2001 on clearance. After several years of neglect he let me have it.
    I have a new 100mm Rock Shox recon gold fork and a fulcrum red metal 5 wheelset to put on it but it will have to wait until finals are over. I will upload a new picture with all the new gear on it.

    also the seat post is bent(new one is ordered) and the stem is ridiculous(will replace soon) other than that its the best bike i have ever owned and i love it. Even if it is 12 years old.

    2006 Schwinn Rocket LTD

    Almost 2 years after buying my 2006 Schwinn Rocket LTD, I think I am finally done getting it were I want it. Took it for ride around Otay Lakes and Proctor Valley. Full Specs below (new stuff in bold)the only stock parts left are the front derailleur and the seat post clamp. Love the new pedals and the RaceFAce BB is super smooth now that is broken in combined with tires that weigh only 460grams makes pedaling easy. In all weight comes in at 28.4lbs

    I really think you've done a great job in making your Rocket a nice bike. I'd love to see how it rides.

    What kind of helmet is that?

    The helmet is a Lazer Oasiz Lopes edition, just picked it up that was my first ride with it. Really liking it just have to get used to the magnetic chin strap buckle.

    The bike rides great similar to my Mongoose Teocali, but geometry is little more XC than the Teocali so there is an adjustment period when switching from bike to bike.

    It's been abt 18 months since my last Schwinn build. My 15 yo son outgrew his old 16" GT, so I bought this 19" Homegrown Factory USA frame and built a 25 lb. hardtail with most of the bits from the GT. I think it's a 96 or 97. No serial number, but the "F" and "Y" in "Factory" are still there, as is the tomato with "USA" in it.

    It sports a Reba RL 100mm fork, XT & XTR derailleurs, XT shifting, Easton carbon bar and an LX crankset. Hayes Mag brake in front with an Avid 1.0 v-brake in back. Mullet style.

    Wheels for now are Speedisc rims/laserdisc lite hubs in front and WTB dual duty in back. I'll be tempted to ride it now and then, as my current regular ride is a FS stumpjumper.

    He's starting to show genuine interest in ridig trail, so he might as well have the tool to do it.

    Seeing this in my garage always makes me smile. Yes, I know it's a mess, but the important stuff is accessible.

    This was my first "real" mountain bike. I want to say it's a 1999 Schwinn Moab 2. I am not 100% on the year. Took this picture today, after a cleaning. I still love the geometry of this bike. She is my loaner/beater bike now.

    That was my first new bike as well. It's a 98 Moab 2 Aluminum. I went to every Schwinn store in my area looking for a blue one. Yours looks great. Other than the seatpost, here's how mine looks today:

    Awesome thanks for the update on the year. Hard to believe I have been mountain biking since 97'. Wish I hadn't bought the Walgoose. It cost less than my medical bills, after the first fall.

    It was/is a great bike. I only stopped riding it because I wanted full suspension. I rode the crap out of it for 1.5 years and then decided to get my Homegrown Carbon Sweetspot frameset. I rationalized it by saying it was good for my back since I had surgery on it. Ha.

    Here's my junk. '99 Mesa GS w/ Rock Shox Tora 302 Coil U-turn fork (80-130mm), shift/brake pods, Vuelta wheels, WTB Prowler rubber, WTB Laser V saddle (favorite piece on the bike) and Nashbar Verge platforms. It takes me where I need to go.

    As a result, I have a frame which serves as decoration

    Otherwise, nice Christmas tree ^^

    And happy new year
    Have you been lucky to find the ICBM yet?

    Same here. I have a NOS Moab 3 frame as mural decoration for years now (maybe someone can help me about the year of production, see picture below). Couldn´t find the appropriate aheadset to build it up. Some shops got it listed, none had it available.

    But another year has passed, and this christmas I got it from Taiwan. You can find it on ebay. Newly manufactured by Tange Seiki for Cane Creek, reasonably priced, and transaction was perfect including registered mail.

    You can buy it directly from Cane Creek. Just give them a call.
