Rollin' Retro...

I traded for this old school 24. It is what they called a Schwinn super stock cruiser, or pro stock cruiser.

I immediately found some chrome GT cruiser bars at city bikes for 5 bucks. They are 30 inches wide!

They are great for cruising around town with the seat post up, but for riding trails it will be another deal. I do have some sweet gold anodized v bars I may set up with levers and grips to swap out. They will match the gold anodized spyder well.

I saw a set of sealed titanium hubs and spokes, 24"wheels, for sale 180 bucks. They are laced to narrower sun rims. I think the hubs are Nukeproofs. Very fast wheels if you ask me. I didn't buy them of course, but I want them.

This bike really rides well. I was riding it at the skate park this evening, nosing it over some hips, and it floated well even.

The wheelset is the original one. It has some cool red line cranks, but they need to be swapped out for some 3 pieces.
