New: Take part in the July Giveaway for a brand new 26" Thruster® Street Style BMX Cruiser Bicycle


My cool Schwinn
#1
This bike started out life a very heavy Schwinn Trailway
It was over 40 lbs. Now it is very near 21lbs. and Rocks!
It is now 21 pounds 6 ounces. I can trim about another 3oz. by moving to a XT rear derailleur and replacing the seat bolts with Ti bolts and rear derailleur bolts. But not today. This bike will probably never be lighter than 21 lbs. the frame is just to heavy.
Even now every part including bolts has been replaced with something lighter and only the frame is original.
All of the parts used to make this build where based on 2 criteria, long life and light in weight.
No added fluff,strictly business built.
