A 1980-something Schwinn something-or-other. I don't care - $10 will make for a nice beater. I just need to verify that it's all straight (one rear dropout looks a little awkward) and then it's off to get powdercoated.

If I had to guess, and that's all it would be, I'd say that frame is no earlier than mid-80's due to its having dual water bottle braze-on, along with a pump peg. I'm sure some frames from the early 80's may have had both, but I don't remember seeing many.

I had a LeTour World ('83/84) and it only had the one bottle braze-on and no pump peg. Again, just a guess. The guys in C&V could probably date it better for ya'

Enjoy it!

Fairly certain that's a prelude from the late 80's or very early 90's. I can't be sure from one pic but my 1990 prelude frame appears to look exactly like that.

It's a great frame. A tad heavy maybe. It is made from columbus tenax tubing which allegedly was a combination of b-inventory SL and SP tubes. The later ones had the same geometry as their best racing frames.

Just a heads up: It uses a 26.6mm seatpost (ugh) and a JIS sized headset - The tange levin is a good JIS headset but the stack is too short for the prelude fork so the fork either needs to be trimmed or you need to use a thicker locknut with more spacers (also ugh). Rear spacing is 126 but a 130mm axle fits if you spread the drops a little.

About the only time a crash kept her off her bike... and that was only for a day.

Ice...

She lost a lot of skin...

Next day she got up, grabbed her helmet and said, "dad... lets go riding".

you so rock. I've been wondering about the rear spacing and it looks like I can run a 9sp if I get the wheels setup right. I'm looking into some Soul 3.0 or 4.0 wheels for my CAAD9 and the R500's on there now would go on the Schwinn nicely. And yeah, I found out about the headset but that's no biggie. I'm heading to my old workplace tomorrow to trim it off. The biggest problem was that a standard 1" headset crown on the fork apparently didn't fit so the previous owner filed it down crooked. I milled it a little and it tapped on nicely. I'm still looking to replace the fork just in case though.

And for whoever asked, I'm still not sure on the powdercoat color... I'm thinking I really like this dark grey but it's got a lot of chips in it right now.


my latest purchase:

a pair of 11-28's because I'm a ***** when it comes to long climbing. This will give me a bailout gear to recover a bit so I can find some longer climbs and HTFU.

Just bought one of those today to replace the one I wore out last winter.
