So is this what they listed as 23" or 25"? Those measurements don't line up with what I'd expect.

Kinda looks more like the 23" which is about 57.5cm.

What's the headtube measurement? Just the painted part between the headset cups?

Well. Now you’ve got me second guessing myself. I’m pretty sure mine is a 23”, measuring the seat tube c-t-t. Top tube c-t-c is 56cm. Head tube is just shy of 140mm. I think yours is indeed the next size up from mine

Looks like the same size as my old 23" Voyageur.

Well now I'm wondering how Schwinn measured these. I always thought my '86 was a 23", but the top tube is definitely not 57.5cm, it's 56cm. And its headtube is shorter. Surely they didn't change the geo between the '86 and '87...

Ours are both listed as 23”. But I believe last time I measured mine it was taller than 56cm but not quite 58cm. I don’t have it with me currently but will measure again tomorrow. You could be right. What we know for sure is that Schwinn’s 23” did not equal 58cm as we’d usually expect.

I can't believe this hasn't been snapped up yet. Very good price on a great bike. Just took my 86 for a ride today and I love that bike.

Very nice. I have the older brother of this, a 1973 World Voyageur and it's a great ride. Any idea how wide of a tire your frame can accept?

Pretty sure 35mm with fenders and 38mm without, with no issues.

To be clear, this assumes a 700c wheel, not the original 27" wheels.
