    Hey, how do you like the Holy Rollers? What size are you running? I'm building a Moab for commuter work and want to get HR's for it. Thanks!

    I'm very excited that my Moab lives again after 9 years of being just a frame.

    My Schwinn Superior

    I'm still confussed if my Schwinn Superior is a 1972 or '73. According to the serial number it's a '72 but others think it's a '73. I guess it really doesn't matter huh?

    The '72 Schwinn Superior would be all original if it had the correct crankset, tires and seat. The rest of it is original. This bike was inherited from the original owner. All of the original equipment I mentioned was missing. I sure would like to find a correct crankset.

    I have been looking for a 17" Moab frame identical to that one for years.

    If anyone knows where I can find one, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    I know where there is a complete 19" for sale if anyone is interested.

    Just for you, Shwinn8.




    I hear you about 17" frames. I kept finding 19's all over the place, but no 17's. A black 17 just went on Buy It Now on eBay very quickly. When I found this 17", I went for it.

    She is currently undergoing conversion to become my SS commuter
    Will post again after the transformation is complete.

    i'm still riding the crap out of my homegrown, looking to get another one too. When this one dies (i.e can't ride it on the trails anymore) I'm going to make it my commuter bike.

    Scwinn Homegrown 4-banger

    Hey guys, I found the site researching this bike. Went ahead and bought it about 4 months ago and I could not be happier. I've only had it out on the trails once so far (Flatwoods in Tampa), but it's a blast on the high speed single track. I got some upgrades planned for the near future (just picked up a FSA K-Force Crankset), but had a few questions. As you can see the bike has a juicy 5 in the front and the stock hayes brake in the back. The previous owner gave me a brand new rear juicy 5 but he said an adapter is needed to mount it. Does anyone know where I can get this from? Also I've been thinking about upgrading the XTR rear derailer with a newer model, would there be much benefit from this? I know the they look much different but has the actual derailer been redesigned/improved? I'm looking for some new tires as well. Any recommendations for leaf covered hard pack, some sand, and occasional paved surface. Thanks guys!

    Nick D, you're my Moab brother! I have a 98 Moab 2 Al in exactly the same paint scheme. You'll see it in this picture thread a couple pages back. Sweet!

    Crash, you're killing me with these photos...I totally covet your bike!

    Year?

    Can someone please date my Moab? (no, not dinner & a movie )

    I got it as a frameset in 2003. I'm not even sure if it's genuine or a knock-off (but the quality of the paint-decal-clearcoat is pretty good). I'm thinking it was one of those destined to be a complete bike, but the shop decided to strip the frame and sell the parts separately

    Seat tube


    Frame (note the "3" on the seatstay)

    That paint scheme looks like 1999-2001, as the entire Schwinn line had the "stripe" motif those years. I don't have my catalogs handy, but I'll have them in a couple days and might be able to figure it out for you.

    EDIT: Using www.bikepedia.com (a GREAT site!), I found this:

    http://www.bikepedia.com/QuickBike/B...ab+3&Type=bike

    Looks like you have a 2001 Moab 3 frame there, which would be one of the last years before the downturn of the brand. (Of course, the Moab line shared frames each year between 1, 2, and 3.) Anyone else?

    Excellent CTB!

    Great find! And that IS a cool website!

    Thanks!

    Anyone know the a2c of that 4" Manitou SX spec'd on the 2001 model? I built mine up with a 2003 Zokes Comp with 105mm of travel, and it felt too choppered out. I have since ditched that fork and am running her rigid with a 40-mm lower a2c. It now handles beautifully

    Doing the math, it would seem the frame was built for an 80-mm travel suspension fork.
    Strange that Schwinn spec'd a too-tall fork
    (note that in the other model years, a 3.15-inch fork was spec'd )

    r1Gel,
    My '98 Moab 2 Al came with a 60mm fork, which I upped to 80mm for years. I have a 1999 Manitou SX-R fork (80mm), and I believe the a2c is somewhere around 17.5". I have the exact number somewhere - again, I don't have them handy right now, but I will in a few days. My friend's 2000 Moab came with an 80mm Manitou SX, which is the same dimensionally as my SX-R.

    Schwinn seems to have sold the same frames with everything from 60 to 100mm of travel. Rule of thumb I've found is that 20mm of fork seems to take about 1.3 degrees out of your head angle, give or take. HA is something of personal taste; I liked my other bike (another Schwinn) better at 69 than I did at 70.5, but everyone has their taste.

    In the meantime, there's always this:

    Forks: Complete Axle to Crown Lengths Library

    Some good info there, but probably not exactly what you need.

    That's a good looking bike.

    I have the gold stinger saddle and kraton grips to match that frame. I've been saving them in the hope that I pick up that frame in a 17" someday...

    I just finished taking a first ride of my winter project. All-new bearings and bushings in the suspension, new Conti tires, and all my fun Fox bits transferred over to the HG frame.

    First impressions: I like it.

    Here is an older picture of my Homegrown 4 Banger Team Issue converted to Straight 6. It is my current and only mountain bike, and I've been riding it and loving it since 2001 (I think):



    I'll have to get a better picture of it soon.


    Unfortunately, I was not wealthy enough to keep multiple bikes.
    Here is the Homegrown I had to sell in order to afford the 4 Banger.
    I sold right after upgrading it to XT cranks and Hayes Hydraulic discs.
    Hydro discs were the luxury of luxuries in those days.
    Anyone remember the old Hayes 22mm chainstay mount?

    Trailburner, your 4B is B**CHIN. Looks like a 17" frame? I never saw the Team Edition listed in any of the catalogs. Very sweet bike. Selling?

    Very nice hardtail, too.
