Another beginners' question

Still in the 10’ distance range, but creeping along. I have a late 80’s Schwinn
with bolt on cranks (not the pins). Would it make much difference or hurt if
replaced the stock chrome steel cranks with late model aluminum models, about
1/2-3/4" longer?

I am 6-0" and the seat is up all the way, and needs to go further. This will
help out and drop a few pounds off. Any comments…

It should not be necessary to change the cranks on a 24" (or 20" for that
matter) Schwinn for normal riding. You’ll find that with a little more riding
that the cranks will begin to feel more and more comfortable. They make a 14"
seat post that should do you just fine. Contact a Schwinn dealer or The Unicycle
Factory. Good Luck, Mike

Re: Another beginners’ question

I would get a longer seatpost. If you don’t find one at a Schwinn shop, you can
order one from The Unicycle Factory at 765-452-2692.
