2005 Schwinn Sting

2005 Sting

One of the first Stings available starting in 2005. The only parts not XS are the seatpost (UNO) and the brake (Shimano DX).

Re: 2005 Schwinn Sting

I like it! Now I (kinda) know what mine would look like with mags (I was thinking Tuff IIs but I like how you kept it XS).

Re: 2005 Schwinn Sting

That's a really good looking bike -and being an 05 Schwinn -that's really saying something.
I Love those mags!  Cool as Heck!

Is that really a chromoly frame?  Usually only see the rear box dropouts and extruded seat stay gusset on aluminum frames.

Stuff I want: 2000 24" DB Reactor Team frame ,  Voxom and Enigma stuff. Alliant / Radix stem and stuff.  JW and Stiffys stuff.  Cool late mid-school cruiser parts.

Re: 2005 Schwinn Sting

The bike came as a frame/fork/headset only so you could build it any way you wanted.  I choose to put all XS stuff on it for a unique look.

Re: 2005 Schwinn Sting

Love those mags! I've got a set on my 2000 Pro Modified, they look killer but weigh a ton. I haven't ridden it yet, so it doesn't really matter.

You've got a beautiful collection of Schwinns though, very nice!


I love everything mid school... That's how I roll

Into Schwinn XS currently, if you have parts or need something PM me
