1999/2000 Schwinn Peloton

The other day I saw an ad for a Schwinn Peloton for sale. I just happened to be in the area, so I swung by to look at it. The seller was asking $225 for it. The handlebars were rotated up so that the brakes were facing me. Now idea why. I didn't have my allen wrench set on me to adjust it and the owner couldn't find his so I did my best to test ride it. Since I wasn't able to ride it that well and it's at the upper limit of a comfortable frame size for me I offered $150 and the owner accepted.

When I got home and weighed it I was a bit disappointed that it weighed 23.5 lbs. I didn't expect it to be super light but with a Reynolds 853 frame for the main tubes I expected it to be a bit lighter. However, when I went to swap the tubes and tires I discovered that each tube had about a pound of sealant in them. Changing the tubes alone dropped 2 lbs off of the bike. It now weighs about 21.3 lbs. I was shocked at how heavy the tubes were.

The frame appears to be a 1999 model year but the fork, stem, handlebars, and seatpost are what was offered in the 2000 model year. The groupset is 9 speed Ultegra besides the shifters which are 105.

Like I said, it is a bit large for me and I am not sure if I will keep it long term but at the moment I am really enjoying it. It's a blast to ride, and I like the feel of the Reynolds 853 steel.
