Schwinn Crisscross Rebuilt 7-Speed, 51cm Lugged 4130 Cro-Mo - *SOLD*

Schwinn Crisscross Rebuilt 7-Speed, 51cm

The base of this build is nice Schwinn Crisscross frame. This is an early true hybrid frame, which takes 700c wheels, has cantilever brakes, and has plenty of fender clearance. These frames make nice commuter or touring bikes for these reasons. This one has been completely rebuilt to be a very rideable 7-speed with a wide range of gearing options. Built up with Rivendell inspiration, features mustache handlebars with a tall quill stem. Handlebars have been wrapped in orange cloth tape, then amber shellacked, giving a deep honey brown. Has a single chainring up front and a 7-speed cassette in the rear, controlled with a Suntour Barcon bar end ratcheting shifter. Has some nice cyclocross tires, which make this bike good for any weather condition, or some off-road trail riding. Has plenty of clearance for full fenders, and can accommodate a variety of racks. This bike is ideal for riders 5'6" to 5"10", give or take.

  1. I realize this is a long shot, but do you remember what size that seatpost was?
