Default Re: Jim's Sprocket Adaptors "Great Value"

I was out riding today and came across a kid on a Jaguar. I asked if I could take a look at his bike while he was looking at mine...Cylindrical Hub...his didn't have the 'Thee Mile Island hub like mine. I asked where and when he bought it and he said he got it for Christmas and his parents bought it at the same Target where I bought mine. This sort of confirms that Schwinn, or Pacific Cycles, the Chinese arm of Schwinn uses whatever they have. It could be a matter of them buying from different suppliers and using whatever is available (cheaper) at the moment. While I was looking at the kid's Jag I also noticed his had different pedals and crank arms from mine. My cranks look like chromed forged steel, his were cast Aluminum. Go figure.
