I'll do that after the sun comes up. The extra long head tube on step through bikes no doubt was to make the frame stronger to compensate for the front down tube sweep. Better to lengthen the mtb fork tube than shorten the Schwinn frame tube, eh? Strong is good and safe.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
