For years my bicycle remained virtually unchanged, just a little cleaner or dirtier from time to time, occasionally receiving new tires or tubes, etc. The last two years however have seen a flurry of activity. Some of the changes are described on this page by comparing two photographs taken two years apart.
Schwinn Sportabout in 2001
“rattle can” spray paint
non-stock rear wheel
small flange on front wheel hub
Schwinn-approved black seat
no rear carrier rack
Schwinn “Sportinental” in 2003
quick release wheels
Schwinn S-6 rims front and rear
high flange on front wheel hub
much newer and snazzier Schwinn seat
rear carrier rack installed for books, amplifier, etc.
