Shogun Prairie Breaker
After retiring my Schwinn Mesa Runner I wanted something with a similar geometry, that would allow for the use of cantilever or "v" brakes, and also decided to switch from a fixed to free drivetrain. I found this Shogun at the local bicycle cooperative and rigged it up quickly. I've played a few dozen games on it so far and like it enough that I'll strip it down, paint it, and finalize the components this summer (2011).
