I ride a modified 26" Chicago electro-forged frame with the original 27" wheel size. The only original parts are the frame, fork, and kickstand. Everything else is not Schwinn anymore but even more enjoyable in my book. Absolutely my favorite bike. I have lighter, faster big frames at home but I still ride this bike a lot.
I still like the lighter/faster bikes more, but for town purposes really like the electro-forged Schwinns. Modded out to fit a rider's needs, they are largely unbeatable IMO.

My everyday rider. From Giant of course, I Need Street. It's a nice riding seven speed city bike. All original except the saddle. (I asked Santa for a matching Brooks toolbag.) It was a beautiful day on our Greenway Trails the other weekend.

And of course we had to counteract all the exercise with a nice post ride snack at our neighborhood wine bar.

Good question. I have many bikes for varied uses, a cycletruck when I need one, a vintage or two when the occasion calls for it, a couple of freak bikes of different types, but my go-to is The Glider. Nice amount of stretch, three speed Nexus, comfortable for several miles around town.
