My Converted Schwinn LeTour '87
I love the forum...get lots of information/ideas from what I see here.
I just did a little revamp on my old 87 letour SS that I use to commute to work, gave it a little clean up and wanted to see what you guys think. Its not a full conversion as I've left a lot of the original components.
I've got a 52t chain ring on it now with a 16 freewheel, powdercoated to match the original schwinn red, Mavic CXP 22 w/ formula hubs, fizik saddle, all cane creek braking (haven't decided whether or not to add in the back brake), sealed BB, and a sugino crank (original I believe, but still solid)
What do you guys think? Where should I take it from here? I need ideas/thoughts on a new chainring (maybe carbon/black), new stem (this ones just beat up a little but i like the silver quill style), maybe etirely new handlebar structure/shape and braking system (i just dont think I can let go of my main levers for grip when running hard, but right now i'm only running a front brake, so the right lever is useless). Ok ,i'm done ranting...tell me what you think.
