Hard to say. But it is probably as new as the 1990s.



It looks as if it is a hybrid, the rear vertical dropouts, the cantilever brakes, and all the eyelets for fenders and racks.

This 1991 Crosscut looks similar.



Start looking here:

Could be any of the Schwinn Hybrids from the early 90's. They all had lugged frames - although I don't think the entry level bike (Cross-Fit) had a derailleur hanger.

If I was going to take a guess, I would say it was a Criss Cross. Consumer Reports gave it a good rating and Schwinn sold a pile of them because of it.

Is there any evidence of the old paint anywhere on the bike? Maybe inside of the seat tube?
