1993 Schwinn Criss Cross
 
Valuations on this Schwinn. 1993
This a purchase for a friend, not a flip. So it is a keeper.
The bike has just had a tune up at the Schwinn shop (receipt) and is in like new condition.

Thanks!

Bill, any issues with the RD mount?

I just happen to know where a partial Suntour group for that exact bike is. I want to keep it in hopes of that exact frame.

But if a need does present itself, we may be able to work through my greed/selfishness.

I don't know much about that Schwinn but I almost had a heart attack when I saw that beautiful Trek hanging over a metal bar, then I did notice the rag. Could you post a pic of that rear derailleur on the Schwinn?

Hey [MENTION=219429]digger531[/MENTION]

Sorry for the delay as I just saw this. Pics of the Criss Cross deraileur. One w/flash.

It shifts beautifully.

Looks like there is a place for a normal RD mount too.

Thanks for the pic. I have never seen that before. It is amazing how much one can learn here.

Looks like they made pretty neat use of the built-in hanger too, is that a bolted on chain hanger for rear wheel removal?

I wondered why that was there.... you might be right :)

That's so bizarre. I didn't know that RD or anything like it existed. I wonder how a two-feet-in-the-grave Suntour convinced Schwinn to put an extra braze-on piece on their frames and use that strange RD.

And what would be the purpose of having the RD at that spot on the frame? Very odd.

The unusual derailleur, as it was explained to me by the Schwinn sales rep, was intended to eliminate the potential for binding in the arc of cable housing needed for conventional rear derailleurs. At that point in their history, Suntour was desperate to come up with improvements that would overcome the (justified) perception that their Accushift system was inferior to the Shimano Indexing System (S.I.S.). But Shimano's patented floating jockey wheel was an advantage that was impossible to beat.
