Old School Schwinn S-10 All Mountain

Old School Schwinn S-10 All Mountain

I know, it's old in fact it's a 98.

I just can't part with her, she's been a great bike. She's set up with risers, a rear RC, Rhino Lite XL's, FSA cranks, Avid brakes and cables, bomber single front fork and some nice, fat tires. The only thing left stock is the frame and seat post.

Oh, and it was

That's cool.

One day in the near future I'll get a new trail bike, probably turn this
one into a "street cruiser".

Nice classic URT ride.

I had a Catamount. I actually liked the way these URT rode: Schwinn, Catamount and Mantras.

Thanks, definitely a classic. I just built up my M1 DH'er this past winter so maybe I'll put some money into a trail bike this winter. We'll see how much my wife freaks out!!

We go out to Moab a few times a year and I always get some sort of comment on the bike. A lot of people have never seen this type of suspension and they ask about it. It
climbs decently but really shines bombing the down hill sections.

Thanks, she's been a good one but I'm itching for a new trail bike pretty bad now days.

Your Straight 8 is pretty sweet, checked it out earlier. Gotta love the old-school Schwinns. It's a shame what's happened to them.

Sorry to bring out an old thread. Was searching about the bike and came across this one here.. Looks really good!!! Did you upgrade it to disc brakes or was it stocked? Was just watching some old episodes of Pacific Blue that I have on tape... They actually used this bike model in the first season before changing to the Trek Y33 bikes from the second season onwards..
