I'm looking into buying a lugged steel bike to try some (fitness) road biking, and I found a local guy selling some vintage bikes (for all I know he posts here all the time haha). He mentioned a Schwinn premis that might fit me ok - anyone know a bit about this bike and its quality for the price? A search came up with one thread saying that they seem pretty solid, so I'll probably be ok with it. Below are his specs and a few pictures; asking price is 225. I'm 5'9" fwiw regarding sizing.
Schwinn premis 12 spd road bike 23”/58cm
Very nice mid – late 80’s schwinn premis road bike. Frame is made from columbus tubing and is pretty light for the age. Components are suntour cyclone. New tires and new columbus tubes, new cables and housing, new bar wrap, new rear axle and bearings. Nice alloy rear rack. This is a sweet little bike and would be great for around town or for longer road trips. Stand over height is 32.5”
