I have totally been enjoying my Schwinn S-20 but have kept searching for a REAL 17” HG- and I found one on Ebay the other day!! 1998 Factory in Bass Boat green! And no, I did not pay the sellers asking price...
Should have it some time next week. Excellent condition from the pictures, the guy was the 2nd owner and just had it in his basement for the past 8 years.
I will probably build it up like my Schwinn S-20;
Raised handle bar stem with Ergon bar ends
9 speed 42/32/20
12-36 rear casstte
Risse racing Genesis or Astro rear shock
100mm front shock or rebuild the one on it (if needed)
Shimano XTR 9020 pedals
