    1972 Schwinn Speedster commuter!

    Hello, everyone. I enjoy reading this forum from time to time and I thought I'd contribute.

    My brother and I bought a couple of bicycles for our grandparents about eight years ago. My brother found a Schwinn Hollywood for our grandmother and I found a Speedster for our grandfather. They have both passed away and the Hollywood is long gone but the Speedster is still with me.

    I ride it 4 or 5 days a week to and from work which is about a 15.5 miles each way. It has been extremely reliable, comfortable, and very, very fast. I can usually complete the ride to work in about 55 minutes which astounds some of my fellow road bicyclists. It weighs 34.5lbs as it sits in the picture and has a 3 speed hub. I hope to ride it for as long as possible and do whatever it takes to make that happen.
