What to Do With My Old Bike - Sell or convert?
I recently upgraded to a 2012 Marin Four Corners. I bought a 2006 Schwinn Super Sport DBX on closeout two years ago for a pretty good price and realized it didn't fit the needs of the majority of my rides, much to the displeasure of my wife. :lol: I'm posting because I would love to hear what some of you think I should do with the Schwinn. I have had it posted on CL for a while and would sell it if offered the right price. On the other hand, I think it would make for a decent starting point as my first tinkering bike.
I have been mulling using it as my around town beater. Possibly converting to flat bar, single speed, etc. I would say I lack intimate knowledge of converting to single speed, flat bar shifters, etc. It really doesn't have room for good full coverage fenders on the rear due to the Schwinn frame.
The bike is pretty stock besides an upgraded rear wheel/hub.
Here's a link to the specs and a picture of it.
What do you guys think?
