    The Schwinn no one wanted

    I’ve got a 24” cantilever Schwinn I want to build for my son. If they fit they’re cool.

    I had to dig up this thread as I’m now thinking I’d like to get one of these for my son but then I discovered the not so attractive price increase.

    Can't find a comfortable seat

    I’ve bought 3 of them online before covid. availability wasn’t consistent even then and that seemed to effect pricing. I don’t remember them being that expensive.

    Gravel bikes

    It’s a really rigid bike. It’s light for my standards but I believe everything is heavier than road stuff. Got knobby 700c tires. Less gears. I don’t think the geometry is road bike. But I can be wrong. I was riding 20 miles on the old dirt tow path and it’s been trouble free. I did the nyc 5...
