Schwinn Superior 21 speed bike - $175 (Hamline Midway)

For sale is a Schwinn Superior road bike. This has been updated with newer wheels, shifters, derailleurs etc. You might mistake these for one of the lesser bikes in the Schwinn line, but this is a fillet brazed frame hand-made from chromoly tubing. Sheldon Brown's website has a nice article on how these frames were built. No robotics involved here. 3 piece cotterless crank, and it has the Sun Tour Command Shifters which alone sell on Ebay for $50-75 (these were available in the late 90s as an upgrade component; I don't think they ever came on factory bikes. I bought several sets and installed these on this bike)

This bike has a 7 speed cassette, (also an upgrade over the 5spd freewheel) stainless steel (or plated?) chain. 700cm alloy rims, stainless spokes, presta valves, Continental tires. Long reach center pull brakes. Paint is faded but mechanically this bike is great.

The head tube date shows a production code of 1638 which I think indicates the 163rd production day of 1978. 1978 was the last production year for the fillet brazed Schwinns. What followed for the midlevel line of road bikes for Schwinn were the made by Giant Le Tours with lugged frames.

Price is firm due to those shifters being kind of an item

Thanks

    That's a nice bike. I had one and would consider getting another. The paint on mine was really nice and looked great in the sun. FYI - the rear spacing is 120 mm on these.

    That spacing surprises me. You sure a PO didnít reduce it for a fixed gear setup?

    No, it was factory spec. I found the Schwinn specs somewhere online when I had mine. They went to 126 mm in 1985. The red frame is 1984.

    These specs don't show 120 mm spacing, but it does show an Ultra six freewheel as factory spec. Nice bike regardless.

    Yes, those early Pelotons had 120 spacing and they were VERY adamant about retaining that size.
    As I found out when we tried to insert a slightly more modern wheelset.
    Lovely frames, though, would like to find a later 86 in the same size.

    Thatís interesting. Was that all Schwinns, or just this model? I would have thought that by the mid-80ís most higher end bikes were 126.

    Canít speak to other mid 80ís models. I was very surprised to find that the 85 I had obtained had 120 spaced rear dropouts.
    Wish Iíd never sold the 86Ö.
