Schwinn 354 Road Bicycle

Good intermediate road race bike.

I am selling this bike because it is too big for me. I am 5’11”, and I do not recommend it
for anyone less than 6’ tall. As you can tell from the pictures, the seatpost is all the way
down. If it fit me better, I honestly would not sell it. Although it is a few years old, it is in great
condition. It rides great and shifts flawlessly. I do really well on this bike on climbs and sprints.

 

The frame measures 62cm to the center of the top tube.

$350 OBO plus shipping.

I bought the bike used at a pawn shop, so I stopped by the local Trek dealer and
asked him some questions. He used to sell Schwinns until 1992, and he determined
that the bike was made in March of 1990. The model is a 354 as marked on the seat tube.

The frame is made of 5000 series butted Aluminum.
According to stickers on the frame, it was designed
by the Schwinn Paramount Design Group in Chicago. The bike
shop owner tells me it was manufactured in Mississippi.

As noted above, the handlebar wrap and Michelin tires are new. I noticed an actual
increase in my performance with these tires. They roll fast, and they corner extremely
well. I almost decided to keep them. I bought the tires at the beginning of June,
and I had the bars wrapped in early July. I also got a complete tune-up in July
including shifter and brake adjustment and trueing.

As you can see in the pictures, the frame has a few nicks and scratches. For the most part
these are minor. There is one large scratch underneath the downtube from using
bike racks. However, this one is unnoticeable except when the bike is upside-down.
You can vaguely see it on the fourth picture down on the left.
