Schwinn New World - Fall Ride
If you have daylight, even if only for a few minutes, take the chance to get outdoors. The weather is still decent, but it may not be for too much longer. The days are also getting shorter.
I had a few minutes of daylight after getting back from an appointment this evening, and I took that chance to go for a ride on this 1947-48 Schwinn New World. It's a fun bike, even if my Schwinn Continental has higher performance. The New World has a nice, balanced ride and enough "go" to move with traffic. It is a little more relaxed in riding position and makes a great all around bicycle.
