Schwinn Peloton - frame swap ??

Hello all,

Im a vintage steel bike lover out in Southern Cal and a frequent reader of the Classic Rendevous pages. Some of my bike projects (such as the are !) are up on my Personal pages.

Over a year ago I lucked out and purchased locally a fantastically original Schwinn Peloton. I bought it on a whim partly due to its great condition, and partly with the intention of getting my nephew involved with it. The frame is way too small for me (Ill measure precisely likely a 56 C-C if that).

Alas my nephew did take to the bike, and by now is outgrowing it quickly.

I just love the red (crimson) color in the paint. You can see the bike up at: http://www-hsc.usc.edu/~rpinder/peloton.html

It is a long shot but if anyone out there on the list has a similar quality but larger frame (59 C-C is ideal) and would like to swap for a smaller frame Id love to go for it. You can directly email me: rpinder (at) usc(dot)edu

And a very Happy Holidays wish to everyone as well

As far as I have seen, they come measured center to top in inches. You probably have the 22" frame. 1984 had 23" and 25" frames, 1985 added a 24" as well.
