Hey, I have that same bike! But have only changed the rear derailleur (old one broke) and the seat. I overhauled it last month, put on some Continental Town and Country 1.9 inch tires, and it is a...

Actually I found out today that you can by a quill to modern stem adapter for about $25. It still has an expander bolt type fixation method, but the top of it has a 1 1/8" top that you can put a...

Hey, thanks! Don't know if I will put much $$ into this bike, as it is only for when I visit where it is stored: Texas. I like doing stuff myself, and with your info and YouTube, I might try it! The...

Thanks, the bike is in Texas and I won't be there until Sunday. I will take it off and go to the LBS for another stem. It is probably 1 1/8 as you said.

Freeranger: what size fork can it accommodate? Also I want to put on a shorter stem - can you tell me how to pick one that will fit in the head tube?

I agree. It won't handle two foot drops with that fork, but simple singletrack riding should be safe. I want a shorter stem for it : what are the size requirements of the headtube? I have a full...

Nineties GT timberline

Does anyone know how old this pictured bike is? It is likely 1994 or so. No suspension, Timberline (but not the "All Terra" version). Can it handle the modern mt bike trails and bike parks? Will it...

My reflectors are still on even after mountain biking all over Alaska. Guess they stay on sometimes. But a few years went by without much use while I had 2 kids and got my Master's, did a dozen road...

I guess I am a forum newbie - what's a MUP? Do you prefer pavement or single track?

Well, I didn't have a bike until I was 9 and I had bad eyesight, so I learned to ride pretty late. Before I was 10 I ice skated, played, ran and read books!

Hey, I have that exact same bike, color and all! But mine is still as it was when I bought it in 1986. You have inspired me to keep it, and turn it into a touring rig. I did have to replace a broken...

Hi! I like to ride the "Farm Fields" and Crevasse! Weather report says maybe snow tomorrow, but that's ok. I just wish Mat-Su people were more tolerant of bikes on the roads and bikepaths. And I...

Yeah, so I looked again and the receipt says 86, not 84 (hard to read). So I also saw the exact same bike on LostArchitect's post and he also says 1986. Thanks for the good info.

Glad you bought it. I have one too, that I bought brand new. It has a different stem without the high rise bars, but it still works really well. I plan to use it as a touring or city bike. They don't...

That's right, who cares! I am a 60 year old grandma and I will keep riding til I die! At least we aren't sitting home in a rocking chair. To quote a song from Melanie (if you are my age, you know...

Alaskans on this forum?

Alaska is a lot different than most of the PNW, with more challenges to year-round riding, darkness, bad roads, etc. Is there anyone out there who lives up here besides me?

Schwinn High Sierra 1984

I cannot post photos yet, as I am a new member. But I have what I think is a 1984 High Sierra. I bought it brand new in March of 1985, so maybe it could be an '85? But I have not seen the same...
