Schwinn Flatland?

Does SCHWINN even make bikes custom for Flatland?
IF so, which would be a good bike to consider for stickly flatland.
I'm about 6"3, so a 20.75 frame is nothing I couldn't compensate for in my size...

CHEERS.

Schwinn does not make a flatland specific bike. All the companies that I know of that make flatland specific bikes are: Quamen, Ares, S&M, WETHEPEOPLE, Fly, Dragonfly, TheFifth, Hoffman, Standard, Eastern, Dividual, Volume, Federal, King, KHE/Titus, and Claypas Bykes. There may be more, but that is all I know of. HARO, and GT used to, but not anymore as far as I know.

Right, so typically if I was to buy a SCHWINN and slap a freecoaster on that sucker it would made it just as much a flatland bike as any other right?

Cheers.

Except for the length and the front sprocket size. The geometry is slightly different too, but that doesnt make too much of a difference I suppose.

you can get a schwinn flat frame called the azriel, (or something like that.)
Andrew faris rode it and i think that he's pretty tall.

Yea, as I mentioned to Flatland Freak there, I can compensate for an extra 1 - 1 /34 inches in top tube length as I'm 6"3.
If anything a little longer of a frame would be in my interest considering my freakish arm reach... lol

Cheers.
