Bill would buy used bikes from the 70s and make them single speeds. He did own a Bria bike because they are usually inexpensive. It's funny because I never saw him on the streets or maybe I did but...

I've seen the Linus and it has much better parts overall. Having said that, I own the Windsor and it's not that bad. I would take it to a LBS and have them strengthen the rear wheel. After three...

Here's another tip. Get a new high quality winter boot (Sorel) that's two sizes too big! This way your toes don't touch the tip of the boot and your feet will be A LOT warmer!

Has it really been 9 years?

If it's a Schwinn at a local bike shop, she'll be fine. However, most LBS do not stock Schwinn because the brand has no bling. That's why I believe it's a department store bike.

I checked online and the 48 bus line is not bad at all!

There's a bus leaving MT Baker every 10 -15 minutes! If one leaves late, you still have another one coming. In my opinion, a 10 minute...

Dicks doesn't tune the bikes up very well or at all but the quality is better than kmart. However, factor in the local bike shop tune-up and you'll have a good bike.

My needs? I didn't say this was going to be my next purchase.

The issues I stated were from those on the e-bike forum who made a legitimate critique of the wheel.
