So my 1992(ish) Schwinn Crosscut is currently disassembled, and will soon be transformed into a drop-bar all-road bike to start training for Cino Heroica next year.
I picked up some 7sp bar-end shifters, going to reuse most of the 400LX group set that was on the bike, changing out the bar and stem for a threadless adapter, Ritchey stem and bar set I had laying around not being used. Swapping out the 38mm city tires for some 32mm cyclocross tires and then going to go find what ever dirt roads I can find around here to ride. But before doing all that, I decided I wanted to do something about the frame. Mostly, I never took a liking to the bright red color, nor the decal style of the early 90's frame. So plan includes getting the frame powder coated, probably a dark british racing green metallic color, and I'm having VeloCals put together some custom decals for it.
Here's the bike, not the best photo, but the most recent I have. Horizontal top tube, but a uni-crown fork, canti's, etc.
JR put together these two decal set ideas for me upon my request, and trying to decide which to go with. So, what say y'all, A or B:
Option A would be downtube decals on either side, and the Schwinn Quality decal on the upper seat tube. Option B would have the Schwinn on the downtube, 'Crosscut' on the forward top tube, etc, standard placement for each style.
