    Here's my Rocket

    Just a bunch of clutter in my garage and my bike. The bike's a bit dusty but I guess that's how it always is. Just updated the rear shock with an Xfusion O2 air (under the Lizard skin) - a fox rip off. So far, a good shock!

    Here is mine: stock setup ecept for the SR Suntour fork, Mavic 138 Rims laced to Shimano hubs, Aheadset SR headset, stem and saddle. Getting a new Zokes Nitro fork (100mm travel) and sometime down the line next year some deore disc brakes with deore disc rims laced to sun rhyno lite rims. Might even get some Panaracer Fire XC Pro tires with yellow sidewall to brighten the ride up. This is not my main ride. Actually I ride a Kona most of the time. But this is my first "True" full suspension bike - Every other one I have owned was a department store bike.

    My Schwinn 4 Banger

    Here is my 2002 Schwinn 4 Banger. A very sweet ride indeed. It has recently had a couple of cracks in the frame repaired and a fresh coat of paint. Which explains why there are no decals.
    I would never part with it.

    Now that you repaired the cracks on your frame. How does it ride?

    Great!!! A very comfortable ride. It has very active rear suspension and does suffer from some pedal bobbing on climbs. But it certainly makes up for it when the trail turns downward
    .
    I may in the future try a SPV rear shock and see how that goes. For now I'm just enjoying the ride.

    Straight 6

    My LBS has a bunch of these frames NOS so I couldn't resist. This was a Hasa Comp 3.0D a few days ago which is why the odd parts. I will upgrade as $$ allow. The red seat post goes south when my new Truvativ arrives next week.

    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.

    My first Underground

    This is the only pic I have of the older (to me ) PU. This one was lacking most of the decals. Similar build to the other one, SS with 32X18 gearing and a Surly fork instead of a Kona P2. These are sweet riding bikes that I have ridden a lot of miles on with no issues as of yet. If you can find one at a reasonable price grab it, they only made around 200 or so frames.

    If you need a new ICBM headset or bearings, check with Cane Creek. They're the only ones that actually makes new ones for the 2001 Schwinns. Talk about a limited market share. I can't imagine that they sell too many of them since the ICBM was used 1 year by one manufacturer on a few models.

    Couple of Schwinns from '99 and 2001

    Her'e's my brace of Schwinns.
    The 4-Banger was a great deal from Supergo.1999 model sold in May 2000 for $999 Much better with the 2003 Z1SLs now
    The Rocket 3 was a steal from Costco - yes Costco - when Schwinn were having thier problems in 2001. Just couldn't walk past this one at $570

    additional information

    see the pictures above!

    it is a 4-Banger, but equipped with a longer 2" shock. thus it has 140mm of travel! it is no more like a straight 6! the 140mm RockShox Pike Team is excellent with the bike! it is equipped with XT-parts, a Tune King MK front hub, magura brakes and 17 titanium bolts! more pics and information on my homepage (on German only)!

    regards from munich!

    where did you end up getting the spring? What rate did you get?

    I played with the spring length on my straight six for a bit. The original spring I had was about a 1/2 inch too long and steepened my head angle too much. Any problems with your set up?

    Have fun.

    This shock works great, and what a deal $62 total! I actually got this spring form my lbs for $30. It's a Mountain speed by Eibach spring 600 bls x 50 mm in a cool blue color. A replacement for a fox shock. The spring is a little long and steepened the head tube angle, but I'm also running a longer fork than before too. on climbs the front end wants to wander a bit,but it's not too bad, the major difference is stand-over height, and saddle height. I could always lock down the Marathon to climb (ETA) but I rarely do. At first I had the spring preloaded a lot so that the spring would not hit the bottom of the seat tube, but the shock would top out harshly and not acheive full travel. Then I started fooling around with rotating the spring so the seat tube would be between the coils of the spring and I could use way less preload. That was the ticket! I may have to grind down the bottom of the seat tube to further adjust the preload, though.

    Thanks for your help in spring selection and your further interest. We'll keep these old dogs rolling! (just bought a 15" frame for spare parts)

    more travel?

    Anyone ever tried to get more travel out of a straight 6, or is the travel limited by clearances and so on?

    Before I sell it...

    Figured I should post a pic before she's gone. About to be sold...time to move on. The pic is a few years old but you get the point. 2000 custom 4Banger, SID Dual Air, Marzocchi Bomber Z1 X-Fly, XT drivetrain, XTR ders and shifters, Sun Rims RhynoLite with King hubs, Magura Louise brakes, some Azonic, Cane Creek, Salsa and WTB here and there.

    It's been a good ride. Good times were had.

    finally figured it out

    Homegrown Sweetspot

    Discovered a couple days ago that I had enough left over parts laying around to bring my old frame back to life. Built it Monday and tool it out for a spin Wednesday, nice to get out on a old friend

    My Fiance's Schwinn

    She didn't want to get a new bike, so I went crazy and almost entirely rebuilt her old one.

    Upgraded the fork to threadless, disc brakes, and numerous other things.

    Can anyone answer me this: are the Hayes MX ones really better than the MX twos? I've seen a review on them stating this, and they're more expensive.

    My schwinns

    Hey

    I post here to show you my SCHWINN I'm really in love with, but also to try to get some help/hope?

    I broke my STRAIGHT 6 early in may

    And I ride my 4 BANGER (new one, I'll post pics soon) each week end

    My trouble is that each time I ride "him" and have some gap/jump to cross I'm afraid NOT FOR ME but FOR HIM!!!!!


    It's really disturbing

    So each week I'm looking for some frame , rearshock or front triangle but it's quite hard to find, harder I guess for me in EUROPE

    If any of you get contact/ parts PLS LMK

    THX a lot

    And enjoy

    R.I.P

    Wow, over here we did not get to see those colors. The blue 4-banger frame is way cool and that polished straight-6 too! I too check out E-bay every day for parts and pieces.

    Cool-blue Rhythm

    Guess it's my turn. Here is my (unknown model year) Moab Elite. Cro-Mo frame and all. This is my second Schwinn hardtail. I found this on eBay while keeping an eye our for my prior one (a 1995 Moab 3) that was stolen one morning while at work.

    This is actually my third Schwinn. I still have (and use) my first one. A 1970 vintage, Suburban 10-speed that was bought new. So what if that one only get used for grocery shopping.

    Here's my steel moab homegrown. Just built up with a surly rigid fork and all deore other bits. Can anyone tell me what year it might be from? I haven't seen many other steel homegrown moabs, and was told it's probably from the mid 90's. Thanks.

    Hey Alex, I see you made your way over here. Just wanted to give you a heads up, your bike is a Moab, not a Homegrown. Looks like the previous owner just put that Homegrown sticker on there. No biggy, just wanted to point that out. If you had a Homegrown, you'd know it. Good looking rigid, nice little change from the norm.

    Thank you sir!

    Someone told me "homegrown" just indicated being made in the US. What's a real homegrown?

    Straight 6



    I love this bike. Put on a banana seat on it and it makes for very sweet downhill riding.

    But I just had my xc bike stolen so I might have to sell this beast so that I can buy something more middle ground.

    SO SAD!!!!!

    I believe that Moab is a 98...wow, this is the first time I have looked at this thread, and it brings back alot of cool memories...My first "real" mtb was a 96 Mesa GSX with a RS quadra 5 that was 2 sizes to big. I got that bike in 98 and I fell in love with all of the bikes in the 98 catalog. I still think about looking for a bass boat painted homegrown to build up......

    My 1997 Homegrown Straight 6!

    I usually post on the Giant boards, but have recently had time to take pics of my old Schwinn. I have had her for almost 10 years which is forever in the mtn bike world. I have gone through atleast 4 XC bikes in that time. Over the years, I have made some modifications. In 1998 I replaced the 4 inch RockShox DHO(that was the only commercially available DH fork of the day in 1997) with at Boxxer (6in). Back in 2002 I scored a Pro-deluxe pull shock (2.75 instead of the Coupe Deluxe 2.0) off of a destroyed Yeti DH-8 and it totally works. The travel is somewhere between 6 and 7 inches, if I had to guess. I had to dial the trunion mount all the way down on the shock for it to fit. This pushed the swing arm all of the way down and raised the BB to15 inches. So, I built a 24in rim for the rear and the BB is now at a respectable 14 inches. Almost all of the stickers have come off, but the finish is still sparkly (Bass Boat Blue). I have raced it all over the Southeast and I always get comments about how old it is. I occasionally see riders younger than the bike and they don't believe me. I hope to have it for many years to come.

    Yes those are the original Hope C2 brakes, 185mm in the front and 140mm in the back.

    '05 Mesa Schwinn Mesa GSD

    I got this bike for a steal on ebay a few months ago to serve as my winter ride. The geometry fit me so well and was so comfortable I decided to go with some upgrades. The major ones so far have been the Rock Shox Revelation Fork (Awesome by the way),XT front and rear Derailleurs, and Avid Juicy 7's. I installed the bashguard for extra clearance. My third chainring kept getting caught on things here in the rocky, rooty New England terrain.....here's the pics.

    No need for brakes that is at the bottom of a fairly large extreemely loose sand down hill. Takes a good bit of practice to make it down and the creek is the reward. Before fourwheelers found the trail you could jump the creek but now its either ride a 6' sewer pipe (not really an option), or put the bike on the back and give it a ride as you wade across.

    2001 Homegrown Pro. This was the last model year and one of the last ones I could find anywhere in the US after Schwinn was bought by Pacific.

    I rode the crap out of it for four yrs after buying a new bike a year or so ago. Just in the last couple months I've resurrected the Schwinn for winter riding / cross racing. I just put 1.5" tires and disc brakes on it. What an awesome bike. I'm really glad I'm riding it again. I'm seriously considering putting some cash into a good wheelset and Fox fork to really get this bike in prime condition for some serious riding again.

    RIP quality Schwinns

    Nice to see all the sweet Schwinns still around. I knew about the Homegrowns being very quick and light but not how cool the longer travel stuff was! Anyway, here's my 2001 Homegrown Comp. Stock here but I put some carbon risers on it. Always torn between this one and my Bianchi Denali (steel, Marz MXR...) For everyone that has experience with the Homegrown/Marzocchi combo, check my other thread. I was thinking about switching off the Judy Race for my Bianchi's 2002 MXR Air. The Judy is smoother, but heavier and flexier too.

    A lilttle difficult run action for the NoVA folks... I really need to take some pics of the great trailage down here in the Shenandoah Valley. Sorry for the poor pics I'll get better

    I picked this up for 20 bucks a few weeks ago!

    1995 Schwinn - almost like new old stock. Everything is original on it and barely used - maybe someone rode it around the street or something but that's about it.

    I had that exact bike just a different color. It had a ton of miles on it and treated me real well. I think I paid $500 new in 95 or 96. Good find for $20.00 enjoy!

    bianchi - it's all original, except for the grips, cranks and chainguide
    i also needed a different bottom bracket to install the chainguide, as the bike originally did not come with one.i still have the cranks, though - the bike was spec. all xtr.
    it was quite the bike in the day!
    cheers!

    Most derailers now come with all of the spacers to fit your frame. The problem you may encounter is the cable stop. There is not one on the frame. You will need one in order for the derailer to work.

    I didn't want to hassle with it on mine. So I put a 36 tooth front ring on my e13 SRS and an 11-34 on the back. I can pedal it just about anywhere. The only time I wish I had a bigger gear is when I hit the open parts of ski slopes. I spin out rather quickly on those.

    Better late than never, but I believe it's a 1997, the same year as the one I have (same colors, too).

    I'll try to get some pics of it up soon...

    What a great thread....Here is my Straight 6(sold) that I miss so dearly. I also used to have a Homegrown that was so light and so quick, I am trying to track down a Rocket 88 and a Homegrown right now......I miss Schwinn. My first real mountain bike was a Moab 3, and it really got me into this sport.

    My racer for this season. It's not how you feel, it's how you look! BTW, if anyone can make a guess at what year this is, let me know. It's all Bass Boat Blue (no silver) and it has the braze on for cantilever style rear brakes.

    Same as mine (see post #101)! I am 99% sure it is 1997 frame. Apparently the last few frames that were built in the Yeti factory at the time.

    Your frame looks a lot better than mine though!

    mtbdee,
    are you bdee of NEMBA fame? If so, we've met. I ride with the Bikes Unlimited guys and we raced in the same class in Root 66, although this year I graduate to the 40 year olds.

    Yep, no disc tabs for the rear. As far as I know it has not been re-painted. I had to replace the front derailuer and some of the clear coat came off with the old front der. making me think it's still original paint and clear coat on the bike. I also replaced a few parts (fork, cassette, front der., bars, tires) with extra stuff I had or bought seperately. The parts that were on it that got replaced seemed old. Actually, the XT crankset on there is still the kind where the spider attaches to the big ring so you can't remove any of the front rings off the bike unless you pull the cranks entirely. The frame is the same as bike21's SS rig on page 5, but the paint seems to more closely resemble willie b's FS pic a few reply's down.

    Schwinn DSX S60

    I've replaced the forks with a Marzocchi All Mountain 4 150mm fork. The rear shock has been replaced with a Fox Vanilla coilover. I have also replaced the front brakes with Hayes MX-2 disc setup. I replaced the seat with a specialized BG-2 sport

    1997 Mesa




    My Grandfather took me to the bike shop for my 13th birthday and told me I could pick any bike I wanted. I really wanted the Moab, but I felt bad asking him to spend that much even though he is very well off. I wish I had gotten the Moab, but the Mesa has done no wrong by me and has taken me lots of fun places. Only stock parts are the headset, levers, seatpost, front wheel and front caliper. Going to treat it to some double walled wheels this spring.

    It is 2x2 and can run 3 different ratios just by popping in an extra SRAM powerlink. 32/14, 32/20 and 26/20.

    I've also got an upgraded S-60 DSX. a lot of you might laugh at the target bike, but it seems to be a clone of the 2002 mesa DSX. decent frame for cheap, works while i upgrade. better than my ANCIENT bridgestone MB-3 team edition, which came to me used, with a prototype softride suspension stem on it. still have the stem!

    1999ish Homegrown S-Carbon, built up from my Moab 2 Aluminum. Over the years, I've upgraded a few things. Edit: I cleaned it tonight and got some new pictures.






    The Moab frame:



    And my spare Homegrown Carbon:

    Nice pics people! the Homegrowns are lookin' sharp!

    I've always wanted one of those Homegrown Carbons.
    I'm still wondering whether a modern shock from 2007 would work on those old homegrown sweet spot designs.
    Would it fit? would it make a difference? I dunno, but I like to think about it.

    One of those Homegrown carbon's built completely with modern components would be a really fun bike, and totally unique to boot. Nobody else on the group rides would be riding one of those.
    That's one of the reasons I love my Homegrown 4 Banger so much. It's a great bike, and you simply don't see them anywhere anymore.

    There are a couple shocks available for my Carbon from Cane Creek if you want to shell out the bucks. There are probably more brands out there, but the dimensions are kinda small relative to today's shocks. I've been riding mine for 9 years, and I still love it. Got some new bits finally this year, including the rear disc, just to keep it fresh. The new wheels and tires were a nice improvement. Believe it or not, I was still using the original Moab Leader/Trail tires! (For those confused, I built the Carbon up from a Moab 2, as shown above, hence the tires, etc.)

    If you ever want to sell your HG 4-Banger, please let me know. I'm dead serious.



    PS: Pics of your 4-Banger?

    EDIT: I just found your pics of the HG4B. Very nice, and my statement above still holds.

    Just another picture of the Homegrown, and also a question for Schwinn Experts

    My BB has 99BBL00130 stamped on it. I bought this frame as a NOS (came with blank product registration card, buyers agreement, and the un-applied chainstay protector).

    I am guessing that the first 2 numbers signify the year and the final numbers are the number in the series? Anybody know?

    My third Project Underground frame below. I finally got it built and rode it last night. Gearing is 34:17, Race Face Turbines, Salsa ring, Spot guard, Bassboat saddle and a Ritchey Pro bar/stem combo, fork is a Surly 1x1. It had been a while since I'd ridden one of these but I gotta say it felt really familiar right away. It's a great riding bike and it's nice and light (relative to my other MTBs anyway). Last nights ride reminded me how quickly a light SS 26er can scamper up a hill.

    someone awhile back posted a picture of a "schwinn 240 DSX" it looks extreemly similar to what schwinn started selling out of target stores in 2007. have a look at the 2004 DSX (it was the first pic posted in this thread, i also posted it after the pic of my S60) then have a look at my target purchased S60 DSX. I upgraded nearly everything on the frame, and have future plans to re-build the pivot (just for fun). The fork is a rockshox dart3 w/poploc i also replaced the headset with a halfway decent cane creek, the rear shock is an Xfusion Glyde R. the front wheel is stock, however untill i can upgrade the crummy disc it came with, i am running old LX V-brakes, so ignore the disc still bolted to the hub, thank you. the rear wheel is a mavic SUP 317 with an XT hub, it was handbuilt about 10 years ago, I've trued it twice, and it lived on my old bridgestone MB-3 hardtail for about 4 seasons before it was hung up while i stopped riding for a bit, thats also where the dimension (who knows who makes that!) stem came from, as well as an old shimano LX rear deraileur and the old DH pedals you also can see mated to the raceface RIDE XC crankset/isis BB. i threw my oldschool IBIS rosie barends on there too. I also upgraded the seat and post to some specialized i cannot remember the model name of, but its pretty lightweight and the most comfortable seat I've ever owned. other than the front wheel, the handlebars, shifters grips and brake levers, and the promax rear V-brakes... everything else has been swapped. i then painted over the ultra lame looking logos, and sanded off the other goofy graphics. i was surprised to find this frame at target, seeing as how its 7005 series alum. and a pretty close copy of not only the 240-DSX frame, but also the old 2002 mesa DSX, a pre pacific buy-out frame, I am confident in its ability to handle off-road riding, well that and the fact that it lived through the massanutten super D. The total weight of this bike, as you see it in this pic, is 35 lbs. no lightweight, but with an air shock, air fork, XC syle pedals and a lighter wheelset, I am betting i could sneak it under 30. however, i weigh 205lbs myself and dont find it all that rough pedaling this beast uphills.
    so, have a look.

    from the old schwinns 10 speeds etc.. the last 4 #'s mean the date.. the day then the year..
    so 00130 would mean the 13th day of the year 2000.. maybe that on the old ones..

    Here are some pics of my Schwinn, my stepfather built it for me several years ago, most of the components are Shimano XT. The frame is well to small for me though so it is quite uncomfortable to ride. It will just be a spare/loaner now.

    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:

    http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=470024

    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.
