Do you guys have that one frame, you know, the one you will never let go of? The trusty 'ol steed that has seen so many different variations. No matter how many times you 'thin the herd', this one doesn't have any worries of leaving the stable.
It started as a bike found in a goodwill by my dad. $25, yep. It had a BMX freewheel threaded onto a freewheel hub. Chainline was way off. SR and 105 parts throughout. I don't have a pic of it then.
I started getting into the SSFG and started buying parts. Here it is with different bars/stem/saddles/etc.
Fixed was fun but I knew the frame had so much more potential. I slowly collected some nice parts and built it up as I went. Once I picked up some wheels, I was hooked!
I picked up another frame and transferred all the road parts to it, leaving the Schwinn frame alone for a little while. Then a wheelset popped up on eBay that sparked an idea. IGH Nexus 3 spd coaster break!
Another trend started lingering in my head, this time one with promises of a fast, plush ride. One with a possibility of running fenders. The do-it-all bike. Collecting more parts, learning to build wheels. Here's it's current state, 650b.
