schwinn looks great. you helped it out a ton. nice!
Oh hey, I didn't see that before pic before, did you add that later? You certainly did clean it up well! Personally my 250-lb self would have stuck with the 36H mavics (if true). And the Dia Compe on the fork -- was that a decal you scraped off?

I love biking in fresh snow. Now that my commute takes me down eight miles of roadside bike lanes, I haven't been doing it. But I put together some vignettes from the past when I had no cars to contend with: http://www.trailimage.com/tag/bicycle (about 35 photos). Do it if you can!

I have Michelin City tires as well. I like them too.

Forgive me father, for I have sinned. It's been nearly 4 years since my last confess... err... commute
Made my bike winter ready this afternoon. As costs are going up I've decided to get back to bike commuting. It's a 40km one-way-ride into the office. Several days of the week I get to carpool, so it will not be a full time commute. Though, even as it's getting colder, I'm looking forward to it.
I have logged nearly 100 miles on my old Trek 850 Mountain Track since i started commuting (part of my long drive) into work back in late October:

I wish I could ride the all the way from home into work (16 miles), but there is a long, winding 55 MPH 2 lane road that is just too dangerous for cyclists.
I usually park 3 miles from work and ride in on bike paths and side walks. It's a great way to start the day!
Had to do a slight rebuild of this years winter bike to fix a few bugs but she's back up and running, it'll only have the drops for a few more weeks and it's going back to MTB bars so I can put the hydros back on and hit the trails. Have a few chances to use the new nokian (Suomi) extreme 294's the things grip like crazy, just front try and corner fast on pavement.
You neglected to say what your badgeless frame is; with all the bontrager components, I'm guessing Trek? Do they make rigid mtb, or did it start life as a flat-bar commuter of some sort? I like the Orca paint scheme too.
Oh, well that makes sense then. In any case you put together a nice looking package.
I'm slow, go around
