have a seat

When I spotted this Schwinn on the University of Chicago campus, I thought I had spotted a rare treasure. Walking around the neighborhood later I realized it was the bike of choice for grad students who had stayed through the summer session. Battered old Schwinn's were a dime a dozen.

But that didn't make them any less lovely.

Here's the whole (brief) Schwinn set »

My first ten speed was a schwinn that same color of blue. It was a hand-me-down from either my mother, who didn't like to ride, or my dad, who upgraded to a sleek orange number when he was hit with the cycling bug back in the 70s.
