I was given a large Maroon mens Schwinn Suburban today for free. I thought, well what the Hell, I'll clean it it up and put it out front for sale, and make $20, or something. I pumped up the tires and took a little ride on it, and I was quite surprized to find out that it rides very nicely. I would recommend one for daily commuting anytime. This is even though it weighs a lot more than my Raleigh Sports. You don't notice the weight while you ride. Maybe I'll be cussing it when I have to ride it up "suicide" hill, I don't know. I believe I am going to keep it for use when I ride to work. It isn't bad, and if someone pinches it on me, I am not loosing anything money-wise.
By the way, I used regular Brillo pads on it to remove rust, and Schwinn must have used some different "chrome" on their bike, because the Brillo did not seem to scratch anything I used it on.
