    Looked up the specs,the Schwinn is 700c and the rims are alloy. Put on a set of Koolstop salmons and you'd be worlds ahead of any steel-rimmed bike.

    The gusseting behind the headtube doesn't look like anything C'dale to me. The components look ok,though,and the price is ok. Ask the seller what the other decals on the seattube say.

    Something else to think about;if you cold set your frame that much,you're also going to shorten it. When you spread the rear dropouts,you're also moving them forward(and don't forget to bend them...

    Yeah,I've had a couple coaster bikes,but always with a front brake. Really nice for when that taxi does a swoop in the middle of a traffic circle.

    Check to see if there are any co-ops/bike kitchens in your area. They're usually the best places for quality used bikes,and can even show you how to work on them.

    It's because it's cheap,hi-ten and low-end parts,that it's so heavy. The Soma's were like 23-24lbs,and my Schwinn's a bit under 25.

    That's been posted before. I really can't see those two stiff alloy beams giving a decent ride,even with fat tires.

    First thing you need to check into is whether or not they'll fit. How much clearance do you have? Remember,wider tires are also taller.
