Here it is, my new bike. A 2001 Schwinn Fastback Limited. Full Ultegra, Look LDS Pro Carbon fork, and a pair of VERY HEAVY wheels (good for training rides though). I got this frame from my LBS after my GT frame cracked at the headtube, Pacific, (who now owns GT/Schwinn) replaced it with no questions whatsoever. This frame is better then I'd ever imagine, it is super lightweight, and pretty stiff. The Look carbon fork really helps things out too. I will upgrade to a better (lighter) wheelset soon and replace the heavy seatpost also. Otherwise, I am damn proud to own such a fine bike, even if it's a Schwinn.

Could've been mighty uncomfortable. Let us know how it rides.
I'm having Deja vu. Wasn't this posted once before? nmSintesi

Hey Bro, Good looking bike you got there. After you get the new wheelset, it should ride as good as it looks. S.
