In 2008 I bought a Schwinn Tourist from Target (not the most knowledgeable bike purchase ever made), and over the years as I've learned more about bikes in general, I've built her back up from scratch to be a Frankenbike of sorts. The only things still stock on this bike besides the frame and fork are the seatpost, derailleur + hanger, and the stem. Since the original flatbar setup didn't actually fit me, this setup allows for a lazy commute into work (at a 45-degree posture angle). The frame is what kept me coming back...I love the look of it, and it's one of my few favorite aluminum frames. The added components make her not-quite-so-light, but she's still lighter than my steel beasties.
Ride what you like, how you like.

Added some saddle bags which gives me enough space to carry a change of clothes. I'll need to add another bag on top to carry my shoes though or keep them in my locker. I'll have to figure it out.
Right now I ride a very stock Trek DS 8.2......looking to add some fenders and a rack and make it my commuter once I get my road bike!
