Post your Schwinn Pics Here!
Schwinn 240-DSX with half the stock parts exchanged for decent ones. The frame is the bomb!
Don't see many of these on the trails.
Built in Spring of 2003, 15 hours ride time so far.
2001 Schwinn Straight 8
Here are my two Schwinns...
I put my white brothers fork back on my Rocket 88. Got rid of the MX Comp fork. Otherwise no real updates for my main ride. Pacific Bikes did send me a new rear derailler hanger for free and a new upper rocker arm (small fee). They're helping me keep my Schwinn and my Mongoose pro alive for a few more seasons. Not sure what I'll do when they eventually die. I've got 2 spare ICBM headsets (thanks Cane Creek) on standby since they may be hard to find in a few more years.
My other Schwinn is a roadie Schwinn Fastback. Sadly stuck in my laundry/storage room on a trainer for now. Needs a new headset. Luckily, it's not an ICBM but a IS headset.
My other bikes are a 2003 Dakar XLT with a White Brothers VT1.3 20mm fork and a 2003 Giant AC 1 with a Z1 FR up front.
I'd really like to ad a straight six to my stable but few can be found in decent shape these days without spending an arm and a leg. I need those to keep riding.
Here's an update of my Straight Six
New forks (Manitou Splice), cranks (Race Face Ride XC) and bash ring (Race Face RRB4)
Seat post (BBB something), stem (Race Face Evolve), Tyres (Maxxis Holy Rollers)
Next up, new wheelset and 9spd conversion.
