    Good evening! My name is Mike and I finally decided to register since this forum is really active on mountain bike topics.

    But I wanted to say hi, and I am a owner of:

    1995 Schwinn MOAB Elite 26" (made in Boulder, Co)
    Some of the specs on my bike are the following:
    21 spd, Shimano brakes, cables (M55t PADs), Shimano Alivio gears and 3 piece crank case, Tioga steering, rear rims Shimano ALTUS, front rim is a Mavic made in france (very lite btw), Rear tire is a KENDA, and I had to get a new tire today for the front and I never heard of it but it is a ROLL-X.

    There is no shocks on it.
    This bike actually been sitting at my parents home for about 3 years and I was going to buy a new bike, but parents insisted me to take a look at this MOAB before getting a new one. I did and it rides great. I did some research and it seems to be one of the better schwinns before they sold out (I think).

    But enough of my rambling. I just wanted to say hi and I plan to get back into this sport. I been riding every day. Now I just need to get tehe gears fixed since I am only able to change to 3 gears only. lol

    oh btw, anyone here in Austin, TX that rides the greenbelt or any other trails around here? Probably a dumb question, but maybe I can ride with you all once I get everythng working out.

    Thanks and take care
    Mike

    Welcome to bikeforums, Mike.

    Nothing wrong with only having 3 working gears... unless they're really low or really high

    I think there are a few members near you... they'll hopefully reply here.

    Thanks Madman,

    The 3 gears that work are all on gear 7 and switchable frome 1,2,3 gears. lol. I can't change off from gear 7 thats on the left side of the handlebars.

    A guy at work rides mountain bikes and it pretty heavy into it. I think he was some cop patrol like 4 years ago, but he was nice enough to offer to take a look at my bike gears and fix/adjust it. I thought that was awsome of him.

    Thanks

    I have a 98 Schwinn Moab too my friend. We are a rare event. It has treated me well and she is quite a different bike from when I bought her. You know what they say about riding a bike, it's like riding a bike. You neverforget. Welcome back to the fun!
    I used to feel bad I had no brakes untill I passed a man with no seat

    Hey man, welcome to the forums. Glad to see another Austinite in the mix. You should check out Walnut Creek along with the Greenbelt. I ride with a couple of guys that I work with but you should also check out www.bikemojo.com, the majority of everyone there is from Austin.
