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
