is that a flip/flip or an either or proposition? I got the bike into photoshop but it's hard to tell what it is.

i didn't see it on the site but your link says for '07. Could Schwinn be a day late and a dollar short on this trend?
Found a bunch of references to the model going all the way back to the 80's

I was at that show! First Billy Squier didn't show....then after about 2 hours they told us Alice was not coming....Cue the chair throwing. I think I was like 14 at the time. Mom's was relieved when I made it home....she saw the riot on the news.

the only show riot I was ever involved in was when Iron Maiden and the Dead Kennedys played in MTL and the punks and metalheads had at it in a giant fight that ended up spilling into the streets....damn it was awesome.

Keith what's your retail/sizes on the track pro? I still want the regular track I think, better clearance for an ice tyre I think, but Steeeeeker might be buying up all the bikes in the city it seems.

I saw that show here in T.O. but we metalheads and punks got along just fine back then.
I have the track pro in 52 and 56 framesets in stock.....The whole bike...which is pretty sweet....goes for about $1300 full retail which of course you will not pay.

My fill in guy sold the last 54 in the regular track I had on Wed. I have a buddy who bought a 54 off me last year. He has upgraded it with a sweet Dura-Ace rear wheel and a few other extras....he wants $400 for it. He is bringing it in later today.

Is it seriously more than twice as nice as the track bike?
To this day I don't know what started that fight, but man what a melee.

High end alu frame with stainless dropout inserts. Carbon track fork. FSA carbon track cranks. Cartridge bearing hubs with Ritchey Aero rims. Vittoria Ultraspeed tires. All Ritchey bars, stem, and seatpost. Ti railed saddle. At least twice as nice.

from what i understand at least two of those shops don't sell shoes, and the original question was who had a good shoe selection, which duke's does. i didn't say it was the best overall bike shop. i only go in there for the odd high-end part that i would need asap, like sidi shoe buckles, they always have in stock for example.
