New to this place but a long time fan of the homegrown bicycle. I've owned 3 hardtails and 2 sweet spots and I still know the location ofall but one of them that I sold to friends in need of a bike.
But my '98 Factory bass boat blue was stolen (9 years ago but I'm still bitter about it.) I've been in the market to replace that thing since day one but according to schwinn there were only 50 made in 21", I've been having trouble locating one. I am of the opinon that bike was the best looking and one of the best riding bikes ever made. The only bike I've had that comes close to it is my Klein Adroit.
First of all, if someone in ohio purchased a 21 blue/silver XT with xtr pedals, a V-brake yoke acting as a rear derailler cable, and a Chris King headset, Then please be decent and sell it back to me. no questions asked!!! Or if anyone has one or knows of one that could potentially be for sale, lets talk!.
I know the paint was a problem for this year so I don't expect perfect condition. But I'd like to see it with close to original components including that annoying cable actuated hydraulic disk brake on the front. (but I'd also settle for just the frame).
