I know there are a few of you that share my interest in the late 1980's time trial / triathlon funny bikes. We might as well start a thread and capture pics of these bikes.
Here are the pics of my recently finished 1988 Schwinn Prologue TT. This is the most extreme funny bike I have ridden. I have a 1987 Team Fuji TT and had a Nashbar Aero Sprint.
I took the Prologue out for a 15 mile run today. There is definitely a learning / adjustment curve with this bike. It is twitchy and, initially, there is a tendency to over steer. But, I am sure I would adjust just fine after riding this bike for a bit.
Regarding the drop, this is as low as I can go. My knees are just at the point of pounding my chest. The drop of the handlebars adds about an additional 2." I may look for a flat bullhorn bar to bring the reach up a little. Anyone have an extra?
Regarding performance, it is fast and I found myself pushing bigger gears. The riding position does make more use of the gluts.
Fun, different, and quirky.
