 DX Hybrid "Atom Bomb"

What can I say, I love the lines of the Schwinn DX and I missed having an orange bike in the stable. Eventually enough parts for a different twist on the hybrid were found and time was available for a build...the results speak for themselves.

This bike is about the brakes as much as the frame and the color - real deal 36 hole Atom drums.

EXCELSIOR Badge. Tange T1200 fork. Tange bicycle motocross headset.

Euro moto style handlebars with Schwinn Stingray stem. Suntour thumbshifters and Magura levers finish off the controls. Did I mention how much I like those old grips?

TA cranks and wide ratio chainrings with Suntour XC-II pedals; Suntour VX derailleurs; Maeda 5-speed cluster.

All in all this looks to be fun in the sun!
