    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...
    .

    current weight 280-290 (some already coming off!)
    .
    bike already has 700c weinmmers or something counts to a 34 spoke wheel?? <34 spoke is that right? I counted thrice!>
    .

    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...
