Hi guys!

Please enlightened me. A friend has this frame and I'm planning to buy it. Just can't find any info about this frame..my question are:

1.) Moab 1 frame is oversized?
2.) Is disc brake ready?

Thank you in advance.

I have a 98 Moab 1.... Still my main ride for now...if you can get it at a good price it will still be a great bike...mine has a XTR/XT mix....many upgrades over the years....I'm getting a new bike next week but I'm still keeping the Moab.... Might turn it into a single speed...

Converted my '96 Moab 3 (stock 26") to 29" (700c) capable,
i.e. can still run the 26" wheels as an option.
This was done by modding steering and brakes:

*swapping the entire steering column for rigid/threaded, and

*swapping the stock canti-brakes,
for extra-long V-brakes (125mm arms, 44mm of adjust)

1999 Schwinn Moab 1 - New and Used Bike Value

I still have my Schwinn Moab. I have added some upgrades in the past year to bring it up to 'fighting weight' while I saved up for my new MTB. I has treated me well. It is a quick, maneuverable bike, but I'm quickly learning to love my new bike.

p.s. I don't plan on getting rid of the Moab.
