    How much for the Spoiler?

    Watched a kid roll by me today on a Schwinn Chopper bike, and man it looked like fun to ride! So I brought up the friendly Schwinn Web Page and found this mean machine.. Yet I can't find any online shops that carry them.. I bet one of you boys have ridden one. How much will a Spoiler set me back?

    I reckon a wheelie would be nearly impossible on this beast!

    $700.00? That does not look like $700.00 worth of fun.

    Wheeling on choppers is scary since you've got so much stuff above the ground it is very unstable. atleast that's how my home-made chopper is.

    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    That would be cool if it was free, but I wouldn't pay $700 bucks for it.

    Would like to see your home-made chopper.... Pulling the shock out of a DH bike makes for quite a chopper (linkages love it when you do this).....
