Charles’ 1986 Schwinn Sprint

18,782 • My friend gave me his old 1986 Schwinn Sprint last summer, and I spent the
last couple of months tinkering with it until my latest ride resulted. It’s
a pity I live in New England, where hills are more common than flatlands.
Hopefully, it will still get some use.

1986 Schwinn Sprint frame and fork, Eighth Inch crankset (46T), SRAM single
speed chain, original bottom bracket/headset, Eighth Inch 17T fixed cog,
Weinemann deep-v rear wheel, Mavic Aksium One front wheel, Uno seat post,
San Marco Light Concor seat, handlebars from an old 1970’s Concord Aztec
road bike, Continental Grand Prix 4000 front tire, Soma Super Everwear rear

  1. I have the same bike and I just converted it to fixed as well. I want to upgrade the seatpost since the previous owner installed the incorrect post. Do you know the post diameter?
