hmmm, from your description it could be either, haha. Sorry I'm not of much help. If you post pictures that might be useful. Was your original issue rubbing on the FD?

Quick and dirty response: looks like a mid-high level 80's Schwinn. Big frame. A nice drive side picture of the bike would help. What do you want help on?
