    64 CM Schwinn Premis ...

    I have the 'other post' about an Azuki...
    done a bit of research all leads back here...
    .
    not really a vintage question... found the tall seamless cho-moly frame...
    .
    bike looks pretty stock...
    .
    here I am 6'6" 290 (post surgery can hit 250 pretty quick with a little work...) ...
    .
    what on this bike do I need to look out for right away??? new rims? stainless spokes?
    .
    I'm thinking new rims with new spokes and new tires, new saddle, better wrap on bars.
    .
    should the factory seat post be able to handle me?
    .
    are the gears up to snuff? split riding time between Littleton CO and flat-town NE...
    .

    I'd look into a Thomson seatpost.

    Ride until you pop a spoke, then respoke with Swiss ST spokes. If you keep having problems, you may have to go to a 38-40 count on the rear wheel.
    14,000 miles and rolling...

    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
