    26” Cantilever Style Frame Comparision Thread

    I've owned 4 Harleys in the past 35 years (still have two). Only time I've ever been stranded is with a flat. That old BS comes from the AMF era Harleys of the 70's and it's been stereotyped and passed down generation to generation via non motorcycle owners who dont know the difference between a...

    26" Schwinn Rumbler (New Mods)

    One of the guys in our car club has 3 daughters who race BMX. They all run BOX components, he's the one who recommend them to me. First impression is bang for the buck. Not cast, all billet and reversible. Seems they should have a much higher price tag. Really smooth action. I have mine adjusted...

    26" Schwinn Rumbler (New Mods)

    Swapped out the oem brake assy for a BOX Blue. Man, these are so nice for the money. This is long reach flavor, they have a short reach as well.

    Who is stripping and auctioning off OCC Chopper Bikes on eBay?!?!

    To each his/her own I suppose. I see forums dedicated to those fugly things and the West Coast Chopper bikes, too. I can see if you were 8 y/o when those shows were hot, you would probably have to have one I guess... On a side note, same goes for any pointy parts, fat tire, tribal flamed...

    Sweet. I rode on mine yesterday for about 30 min, great seat. The foam (not gel) is real compliant not too soft and spongy, nor is it too hard if that makes sense? Let us know your thoughts when you receive it.

    I got this Aikate on Amazon a couple weeks ago for 25 bananas. Looks very similar to the one in your pic Horsefarmer, it even has the rubber springs. I think they are on sale for 23 right now? Only available currently black w/blue or red stitching. REALLY like it. Litte BMX seats are cool....if...

    Too picky? I couldn't get the first chain to fit period (see my first pic) How does that make me too picky? I too have been playing and wrenching 45 years. Started in 5th grade customizing bicycles and racing motocross motorcycles. The past 20+ years building custom Harleys and Hot Rods. If I...

    Wood frame bicycle

    Yep late 90's to mid 2000's is now Vintage, hahaha! Silly kids. When I was a little kid my grandma owned an Antique Store (That's now a Vintage Store to you kids) on Ventura Blvd in the San Fernando Valley, California. Needless to say, I've always been intrigued by old items. I asked her when I...

    Schwinn bikes ( post pics here )

    I still have a '68 Stingray Jr I'm slowly working on, but here's a 2020 125th Anniversary Stingray with a 26" springer I'm currently buttoning up and riding. Started with just the frame. Still may repaint purple, I'm on the fence and in no hurry. In stock form.

    Electra Bicycle Pics

    Purchased the day they came out, replaced the grips seat and pedals same day. Kind of wish I hadn't now, but I had no idea that after 17 years I'd still have it. Pic was taken about 4 years ago. Hanging out with Wolfy, my '41 Chevy pee-cup early this year. Posing with my youngest daughter's...

    Nice, I had a chrome Mongoose with all red anno accents and gums. I busted the frame at the neck doing some very high jumps. Took all the goodies off and mounted them up to a Gary Little John "prototype" frame that I got my hands on. Man, I cant begin to imagine how much that would be worth...

    Success! You hit the nail right on the head with regard to fine tolerance chains vrs. cheap chainrings. Worked like the champ, fell right into place. I learned a good lesson with this one, thanks.

    Yeah the ConneX has a lot of good reviews, its really smooth on the Stingray, even with the cheap China components in the rear hub.
