I rode the old Schwinn Passage today, for the first time in a while. I used it because of the rack and panniers.....and it was like riding a tank! The handlebars are too narrow, and the platform/clip and strap pedals absolutely suck and the bike weighs a ton! I've been spoiled by my Allez. Some changes are coming soon on the Schwinn, I can guarantee ya! The only comfortable thing is the saddle.
- Installation of Egg Beaters
- Wider Handlebars
I got stuck in the straps and almost went down in a 0 MPH fall in the road, as well.
