Speaking of gratuitous pics of sweet bikes donning Ironweed bags, check out this 1959 Schwinn Tiger. Interestingly, I think of the Schwinn as the quintessential American product. However, unlike the Moulton which is 100% British, if you look close, even the 1959 Schwinns had stuff that was not made in the USA. There are at least two components on this Tiger that were rebadged as “Schwinn Approved” but came from elsewhere. Can you identify the components and their country of origin?
In other news of the week, the nice people at BicycleSPACE in our nation’s capital did a very nice review of our panniers. Thanks for the kind words!
