    Merry Christmas
    Rarely ride a Schwinn
    So I figured today was a good Schwinn day

    Very cool bike Cory! Some nice parts on that frame. No wonder it rides so nice! I’m a believer that light wheels are the most important part on the bike that makes it responsive. You have some really nice wheels there!

    I took advantage of my last day of vacation and spent some quality time with my bike and oh yeah, my son :mask:
    We rode to our favorite coffee shop for breakfast but before we left, I gifted my '53 Panther to my 12 year old boy as he has officially outgrown his 24" of the same year. He was beyond stoked to be riding a 'big' bike and it just so happens that this bike in particular is about as smooth a rider as I own...you know the one ND rear hub that can actually skid!! The Panther is nice but not too nice which is perfect for him as I watched him jumping off curbs to test the Schwinn springer as I cringed and then just as quickly let it go...he's riding the bike exactly like a 12 year old should...the bike will hold up fine. It's a Schwinn after all.

    When it came to taking pictures, he made sure HIS bike was in front!

    Last pic...I had no idea he was related to @HippyMike!

    Riding with a 12 year old is good for the soul!

    That's beautiful! He's one lucky boy, and looks very pleased. Lovely gesture!
