Default Re: Vintage Schwinn or 70's Free Spirit?

"The only other problem with a diamond frame is that the top tube is a litle short and puts the tank in the way of normal peddling"

I have two of the "Diamond frame bikes adn they have more room for mouting the tank than my two cruisers do, long.......... upper bar and the Free Spirit frame looks to be the same size as he two I have, actually it is longs that my old "Diamond" Frame mountain bike and it has a big 4L tank on it, I'm not a real tall fella but at 5'10" I still have plenty of room to pedal in the event I absolutely have too.

Below, Red bike is a Free Spirit, Blue/green one is an old Columbia and the "Diamond" frame Gold Bike is a Texas Ranger they're all three speed bikes and the Gold one looks like the same frame size, loads of room in that frame....

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
