Strengths:    Brent and Katryn offer the best example of customer service that I've found in the bike industry, and having 10+ years of work experience in it myself, that's saying a lot. Also, Brent does the best welds in the business. True story: On a training day at the San Diego velodrome last year, I actually had a guy say to me "what great fillet brazing!". After such a nice compliment, I didn't have the heart to tell him it was really TIG welded :).

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
My Steelman Signature is a custom track frame, a sprint bike specifically. As always, Brent was very responsive to my input on exactly how I wanted the bike to handle, and the end result is perfect. This thing jumps like a cheetah, I couldn't ask for anything more.

Strengths:    Ride characteristics are "in tune", excellent handling and stability. Makes that sweet steel music over bumps.

Weaknesses:    Should somebody love their bicycle this much?

Bottom Line:   
This review is a follow-up to my initial review posted May 4, 2001 under the Steelman Stage Race category.

This Signature frame continues to delight, a lively riding companion that's trustworthy in all situations- I cannot think of one ride which didn't end with a smile on my face and a song in the heart! She has endured the continually degrading local road conditions without protest for 4-1/2 years, and Brent's ability to just nail the fit is still the stuff of legends for me- where others tried, he delivered!

Schwinn - Signature Series Expansion

For this 2013th year, Schwinn appears to be expanding its Signature Series models of bicycles. This means that Schwinn appears to be distancing itself away from the big box store Schwinn models so often seen in the Xmart stores. Apparently, the big-box-store-low-quality image, has damaged the Schwin ... Read More »

Signature viewing off?

Is there a way, as on some forums, to set it so that signatures are not visible? EDIT: Found it in my profile preferences. Much more pleasurable to spend time here now. Now I can stop wondering what the hell a Klondike bar has to do with cycling.Read More »
