PTB, there are several Schwinn experts on this forum, Bob Hufford is one who comes to mind. As I recall he helped me date a Schwinn Le Tour Luxe I used to own. I'm NOT a Schwinn expert, but I did a little research during the short period that I owned 2 Schwinn 10-speeds. As I recall, the LeTour was one level below the Paramount and all Le Tours are considered good bikes. I was surprized to find yours has alloy wheels, that will help to reduce weight not to mention the rust problem my bike had with its old, steel chromed wheels. My only other comment is, I don't think the review mirror was standard on that bike. I hope you enjoy your Le Tour Luxe.
