The Schwinn Pabtger is an aluminum cantilever style “paper-boy” bike, single speed, with bits and pieces that enable it to be converted into a multispeed bike. I put fenders on it and ride it around town or on training ride when weather is horrible and I won’t be during anything during the ride but feeling sorry for myself.

I have a refurbished 1999 Litespeed that I ride when I am fit enough and the weather good enough to really enjoy the ride. It is still chilly and windy and I need to lose winter weight It .hasn’t come out yet. As a retiree here in Iowa, that may be mid-April or May.

At that point, it will split time with my Bikes Direct bike with the triple that enables me to ride up hills into the teeth of the early spring winds
