    This is insightful, and explains the sizing quirks and ride qualities of these vintage Schwinns. Makes me wonder how the shorter wheelbase, curved seat tube Sprint would ride, when properly sized.

    I remember having a pair of Bata Bikers in the late 70's. They were pretty much the Chevrolet of biking shoes but seemed to get the job done.

    I spray PB Blaster into empty, 2oz. Tri Flow drip bottles. Makes a can of PB last forever, puts the PB precisely where you want it, and in most cases, makes it easier to apply.

    I will certainly shed a tear when they start taxing out of state internet sales, but as it is, I already pay my fair share. I count my blessings that Wa. doesn't have a state income tax. (yet)

    Nashbar might be a little off on their specs for this bike. I measured my seat tube at 18" from BB to the top of the stationary part, just above the seat clamp. Pretty sure these frames all came in...
