    If you need a new ICBM headset or bearings, check with Cane Creek. They're the only ones that actually makes new ones for the 2001 Schwinns. Talk about a limited market share. I can't imagine that they sell too many of them since the ICBM was used 1 year by one manufacturer on a few models.

    Went from bone stock to a lot better.

    Avids, new shifters, speed dials. New drivetrain. I like! Moab DS3, before pics above.

    Couple of Schwinns from '99 and 2001

    Her'e's my brace of Schwinns.
    The 4-Banger was a great deal from Supergo.1999 model sold in May 2000 for $999 Much better with the 2003 Z1SLs now
    The Rocket 3 was a steal from Costco - yes Costco - when Schwinn were having thier problems in 2001. Just couldn't walk past this one at $570

    additional information

    see the pictures above!

    it is a 4-Banger, but equipped with a longer 2" shock. thus it has 140mm of travel! it is no more like a straight 6! the 140mm RockShox Pike Team is excellent with the bike! it is equipped with XT-parts, a Tune King MK front hub, magura brakes and 17 titanium bolts! more pics and information on my homepage (on German only)!

    regards from munich!

    Wanna see what your fork looks like with up to date stickers??/
    I got the same fork

    Schwinn straight 6 update

    Here's my straight 6 with a few component updates. Been running a White Bros FR150 for a few years now and love the set up.

    moe of everything

    Here's an update of my 4-banger, converted to straight-6. Upfront a Marzocchi Marathon S 120 and a Rockshox pro deluxe piggy-back out back. Like a whole new bike!

    where did you end up getting the spring? What rate did you get?

    I played with the spring length on my straight six for a bit. The original spring I had was about a 1/2 inch too long and steepened my head angle too much. Any problems with your set up?

    Have fun.

    This shock works great, and what a deal $62 total! I actually got this spring form my lbs for $30. It's a Mountain speed by Eibach spring 600 bls x 50 mm in a cool blue color. A replacement for a fox shock. The spring is a little long and steepened the head tube angle, but I'm also running a longer fork than before too. on climbs the front end wants to wander a bit,but it's not too bad, the major difference is stand-over height, and saddle height. I could always lock down the Marathon to climb (ETA) but I rarely do. At first I had the spring preloaded a lot so that the spring would not hit the bottom of the seat tube, but the shock would top out harshly and not acheive full travel. Then I started fooling around with rotating the spring so the seat tube would be between the coils of the spring and I could use way less preload. That was the ticket! I may have to grind down the bottom of the seat tube to further adjust the preload, though.

    Thanks for your help in spring selection and your further interest. We'll keep these old dogs rolling! (just bought a 15" frame for spare parts)

    more travel?

    Anyone ever tried to get more travel out of a straight 6, or is the travel limited by clearances and so on?

    Before I sell it...

    Figured I should post a pic before she's gone. About to be sold...time to move on. The pic is a few years old but you get the point. 2000 custom 4Banger, SID Dual Air, Marzocchi Bomber Z1 X-Fly, XT drivetrain, XTR ders and shifters, Sun Rims RhynoLite with King hubs, Magura Louise brakes, some Azonic, Cane Creek, Salsa and WTB here and there.

    It's been a good ride. Good times were had.
