Schwinn Columbus



There were seven men on the 1981 7-Eleven Cycling Team (that would later host Greg LeMond), and it turns out, that inaugural year, they rode Schwinn. Our September Bike of the Month is a vintage, 14-speed Schwinn Columbus, and with that red, green, and white color scheme, it sure feels inspired! Featuring a steel frame, with 700 x 25c tires, Shimano Dura-Ace components, downtube shifters, and a 172.5 mm square taper Campagnolo crankset, this bike’s ready for some Sommersett laps (or at least a Reno/Sparks Slurpee Tour). An overhaul, it’s priced at $425, and comes with a Pedaler Membership. This 61 cm bike will fit a rider standing 6’1″ to 6’4″.
