    16 year old Schwinn Moab refresh...

    Bought this around 1997 I think, so its about 16 years old, was in need of a few tweaks...






    Un-singlespeeded, 36t on the front Sram X7 with 11-32 out back.
    Geax Saguaro tyres seemed a bargain at 10
    Kona Project twos on the front
    Shorter raceface evolve stem and wider bars

    It might be better received around these parts if it had all of its' correct year components and was cleaner. Late 90's bikes are a bit old to be in VRC category too. I only know this from experience....

    Hey, good for you to get an older bike up an running. Ride the snot out of it.

    How was it getting those Geax tires onto the rims? I have some Barros and I love them, but I bet it took me an hour to wrestle each of them on. If I get a flat with them out and about, I'm doomed.

    hey zygote cheers, it was either get it running again cheaply or not at all

    Austin, the secret to getting them on was marigold washing up gloves! never seen a tyre go on so quickly!
