    New Schwinn Madison street date?

    Anyone know when the new Schwinn Madison's supposed to come out? It seems like it's going to be a pretty good deal for just over $500. It looks pretty sweet, too.

    maybe its made in the same factory then, cause the fork is defnately the same. Whoever gets one compare it to a bareknuckle, I wana know how similar they are in person.



    EDIT:


    Now that Ive been going over the 2 bikes, I htink the rear triangly on the knuck is a bit different too, with smaller seatstays.

    The same factory is a definite possibility. And yeah, the forks look identical.

    But is the Schwinn the same tubing as the Bareknuckle?

    I don't know about the fork, but eyeing how the seat stays mate with the seat tube, it doesn't look like a Barenuckle to me.

    Handsome bike.

    I emailed Performance several weeks ago asking about the availability date, and they replied they thought it would be in the stores sometime in November.

    It looks almost identical to the 1985 Madison, except it's TIG welded instead of lugged.

    That type of fork crown is a relatively common style. For another example, check this one that was made by a friend of mine from college. Hardly exclusive.

    Some just like bikes and aren't to particular (or snoobish as the case may be).
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    This will look great next to my Surly Steamroller, Motebecane Messenger, Bianchi Pista, IRO, and Fetish Cycles track bikes with velocity hubs

    As long as it looks good.

    I can't see why you would actually ride it if you own those bikes.

    It's amazing how they've been able to uglify it since 1985.

    I thought the same thing as well until I looked at some of the bareknuckles posted in the photo section. The front geometry/fork is dead similiar but the fork ends and chainstays look noticeably different.

    I guess I shouldn't be surprised that I'm decidedly ho-hum about a bike that is both
    a) similar to the bareknuckle, which I am decidedly ho-hum about
    and
    b) a "modern reinterpretation" or what-have-you of a bike that I am decidedly ho-hum about

    Decidedly ho-hum,
    Michael
