This Schwinn got me back into biking. A friend had it sitting in his storage room. His girlfriend had bought it at a garage sale years ago for $10. She rode it for a while, but thought it to be somewhat dangerous having to jump off each time she had to stop.

I slowly have been updating it for my commute to work.

This is how I got it:


I have made the following changes:
- 700 Mavics with DA hubs / 7 speed cassette
- Cinelli bars and stem
- longer no-name seat post
- long reach Tektro brakes
- 600 brake calipers
- Brooks Swift saddle

I'm not done yet, but this is what it looks like now:


Yes, the Traveler is not Columbus tubing, but I love the taiwanese frame.
