allright... that looks fun.

how do you like the f&r brakes both actuated at once? i've always wondered, particularly as i'm used to using the back brake to help steer at times, ride in f'ed weather other times when i'm not desiring the front as much, etc.

i dig it. it leads with the rear. i made it fully adjustable as i use only rear most of the time as well. but when you get into a situation that you need to stop immediately, just slam it down and it stops on a dime.

Seat isn't Schwinn, but it is vintage 50/60's early 70's hardware. Schwinns had a tag on the back with "Schwinn" on it, and some had an "S" on the seat.

It's similar to "Troxel" seat, (which will be marked on the pan) but I think it's made by a company called "Wrights", who made seats for bicycles out of England. Troxel was out of Tennesee.

Regardless....love the bike.
