    This is a new, old stock, 1999 Schwinn Peloton frame that has never been
    ridden or even built up. It came from a distributor's warehouse where it has
    been stored since it was delivered from Schwinn.

    This frame is made of super strong and light Reynolds 853 tubing with a
    lightly used steel fork. Reynolds 853 air-hardening steel tubing is much
    sought after by frame builders for its superior strength to weight ratio:


    This frame measures 57cm from the center of the bottom bracket to the top of
    the extended seat tube, or 55cm from the center of the bottom bracket to the
    top of the top tube, or 54cm from the center of the bottom bracket to the
    center of the top tube. The top tube measures 55.5cm.

    The frame is a beautiful inkwell blue with a white panel on the downtube
    with Schwinn decaled in black script. The chainstays are s-curved ala
    Serotta, the rear brake cable is routed through split stops at 7 o'clock on
    the top tube,
    takes a clamp-on derailleur, has two sets of water bottle bosses, takes an
    English threaded bottom bracket, the rear vertical dropouts are 130mm wide,
    and the 1" headtube is 133mm tall. The black threaded steel fork that comes
    with this frame was used only for a short time while a fellow waited on a
    warranty return on a carbon fiber fork on a different frame than this one.

    There is a paint chip on the top of the bottom bracket shell, a few
    scratches around the headtube where the frame hung in the warehouse, and a
    few slight marks from shop wear where the frame was moved around in the
    distributor's warehouse. Overall, this is a very nice and light steel frame.
    The black steel threaded fork is included, and I will supply an open-front
    quill stem.

    $225 professionally packed, shipped, and insured to the lower 48 United
    States for the new frame, lightly used fork, and stem.
