Default Re: Upgrades and mods from stock

In order

---$10 suspension seatpost on ebay- a lighter alloy also now available in 1"/ 2.54 cm, but harder to find.

----suspension fork- somewhat hard to find for 1 inch headset and 2.22 stem- in correct length Got one at Cruisinthe lowlife on ebay

---36 tooth sprocket- big difference in cruise speed- less for mountain climbing!

---narrower tires and wheels- went first from 2.25 knobby cruiser tires to street tread 1.75 width- another big difference, and less vibration. Now have 27" inch wheel on the front, with a Caqmpagnolo road brake, and plan to also now change back wheel to 27 x 1 1/4 alloy- a real easy pedal now and lots less work for motor for the same returns. Will try now a 32 tooth rear sprocket I've had. I'm interested mostly in just street commuting in flat Florida

Just mounted short billet intake and getting new NTS carb- untried

Almost finshed with Schwinn Traveller build as well- 50 slant head with alloy 27 inch wheels- but tired and arthritic- I'm about through changing things around!
