Jon’s Schwinn Conversion

Jon from Des Moines Iowa sent over some pics of his new build

It's a Schwinn world sport dressed up in some All-City goodness. 

One of the things that I love about the fixed gear movement is the new life that it's breathed into so many older road bikes.  This baby's been lovingly stripped and recreated as a very modern machine.  
Making the old new again, it's the best form of recycling.   

 

Looking good Jon, and thanks for the email
