any info about this schwinn bike?

Postby LoveB » Mon Aug 20, 2012 10:28 pm

so I recently sold my downhill bike, got a bmx as I wanted to try it out dirt jumping and while I enjoy it I'd rather have a bike I can ride around as a commuter so I found this

Image

someone wants to swap it with my bmx. All I really know at this stage is its a shwinn. lol. can I change the stem/handlebars out easily??

Is it more use to you than your BMX? $329RRP in the US would put it about $400 here.

pfffft

it looks good in the pics though. lol I'll probably pass on it and keep the bmx


probably only more use now as i wanna bike with the missus around which is a bit hard on a bmx that i have to stand up on each time i pedal lol. But for what it is I'd rather hold on to the bmx and wait for something else at this stage. I believe i saw some better ones for the same price -/+ 350

I think the cycling deal for$299 is a lot better value tjan that. Reynolds cromo frame. Shites all over those reid,mojo, cell, chappeli trendmilking units.

it appears i might still end up with this. lol from what I've reserached this is the 2012 model. with the flip flop hub and replaceable chainrings. cycleworld has it for 490$ thereabouts and its a month old. So not too bad I suppose. I just hope someone else out tehre wants to swap with me lol

Its still a hi ten POS IMO even if it is 2012 model. Why anyone would pay 490 for this as opposed to 299 for a butted cromo frame is beyond me.

i suppose I should add I'm not paying for it seeing as he wants to swap. lol. if I find any other decent bike that wants to swap with the bmx I'll get that.

You could, but you might run into some problems with chain tension looking at those drop outs.

Thanks. Might swap for the fixie then sell it in Manila when I get overseas then just rebuild the road frame. But if the parts swap over easily lucky me. I'll just sell the frame
