The StingRay just grew up, long frames ride much better ( linger crank also ) that’s why shorty’s became juniors for the little kids, for a short ride I might take a 64 but usually ride a 65!, oh ya, great pair of Limes!

The first Sting Rays used the standard 20" cantilever frame and that 20" platform needed to be modified to further enhance the Sting Ray's platform for larger riders and future upgrades.

63 ...64 The Shorty was king ... but they did have their problems .. as we know that 20 was with us before the stingray and used the small juvenile pedals with a 4 1/2 inch crank ... even in the early 50s .... but when the stingray came out and 63 they used larger petals to attract the bigger kids .... they found that in sharp turns these larger petals would make contact or touch the ground ... more ground clearance was needed for a larger crank and the larger pedals .... thus the larger kickstand .... persons solo polo seat stopped production for the 65 as Schwinn started their own seat manufacturing ...
