    Schwinn SASS

    Anyone own a SASS? 1992 Eric Buell design. Or how many were made?

    I owned one for a little while, but ended up selling it. It was as interesting step in the development of bicycle rear suspension, but I thought the rear suspension never worked too well on it, plus the linkage would always hit logs.

    Wow, very nice. Schwinn teamed up with some motorcycle greats-Eric Buell and Mert Lawwill. What a story.

    I miss those days of innovation and new ideas. Schwinn was doing some cool stuff, even if some things (like this SASS) didn't work out for best. I didn't start biking until '94, so this was a bit before my time. Cool stuff.
