I showed Rachel a picture of a townie bike that I thought she might like:
But that bike costs $1200. I took the Schwinn she had and added $200 worth of parts/materials to make this. Fun project.
In the end, I kept the Headset, BB, RD, frame, fork and wheels. I had the Schwinn decals custom made by www.bikenames.com. Also, ground off the teeth on the large ring so that it would act as a guard.
