Not so much- I have friends that live down there, my wife's daughter lives *just* out of Bay View, but we don't go there too often these days... I used to hit Cactus Club and Garibaldi a lot... but it's a drive back home.

It's a lovely view of the Milwaukee skyline from down there. Is there decent car-free bike paths down there? We have the Glacial Drumlin and the New Berlin trails- which is straight line out to Cottage Grove and the New Berlin goes straight into Milwaukee...

The bike path from Bay View (South Shore Park) to the beach at Grant Park has to be one of the nicest rides in the country. Views of the lake with some wooded stretches. Put you bike on your car , park at South Shore Park, and ride to the beach in Grant Park someday.

Love all the cannondale STs in this thread. I had a beautiful white one that was too big for me, but nice clicky shifters and smooth welds.

I would love to see your Touring Series V when you get enough posts for pictures. I have an IV that I really like.

I got lucky and landed a time-capsule 1984 Schwinn Voyageur today in my size and at a reasonable price. All original including the rear rack and the Schwinn Passage tires!

I don't know what it is about that colorscheme, but I've always wanted one of those. It just calls to me.

That's a beauty. I've got a minty 83 SP that 23.5", but a 25" would be a better fit.

Recently put this on the road after a complete rehabilitation over this past winter. Though only a lowly TS III, I'm really enjoying the ride. A lot of fine touring bike for what it all cost me. Very comfortable, good kit and I, for one, think it looks great.



Naw, the saddle is not uphill. The bike is uphill. The saddle is, actually, a couple degrees nose down, as I like em.

Nice TSIII. Nothing lowly about those! The TSIII-TSV were very close to each other when you really look at the build sheet. Closer than many of the other touring bike ranges offered by other manufacturers. https://classicfuji.posthaven.com/19...-no-14-edition

Thanks and, yes, I know. I think it is a great value. "Lowly" was a bit tongue in cheek.....

Schwinn passage

I don`t like a dirty bike, but I marvel at how clean you all keep your vintage touring bikes!!!!!!!! How Do You Do It ?!?!?!

I took these pics yesterday, and after having this bike from day one(, I`m the original owner, ) I noticed something. I always thought 1986 was the last year for The Schwinn Passage.
But, when I snapped these pics yesterday I noticed the year 1987 stamped on the Schwinn emblem!?

The way to decipher the Schwinn badges is the first three digits are the day of the year and the fourth is the last digit of the year. Your bike would be 198th day of 1987, or about July 17, 1987 if I counted right. It's a happy coincidence that the number matches the year.

Just an FYI, but the Passage was around way past 1987 as well. It went all the way out to 1999 I believe. I think in the early 90's the Voyageur was discontinued and the Passage was the only touring option available from Schwinn.

That`s some weird , wild stuff. I did not know that.

I thought The Passage morphed into a less of a touring bike later in it`s life.

I think people who are about generally "our age" find that dark teal to be irresistible.

It is for me.

Beautiful bike ZudeJammer !!

roadsnakes can you explain the stem setup on that. Looks like it’s backwards. How’s the ride with it positioned like that? I think I remember Analog bikes was promoting something similar a while ago.

Yes , it is backwards. LOL

The original stem was very long, so you rode stretched out, and low.

I`m elderly with a very bad back.

Years ago I went with a shorter stem. It made riding more comfortable. But, as the years passed the back got worse. So to get the bars higher and closer , I raised it as high as it could go, and reversed it.
Now it`s nice and close, and I don`t have to reach out and down.,making my riding position more upright.

The handling was a little "squirrely" at first, but I adapted to it very quickly as the alternative probably meant not riding.
