Wishbone seatstay cool, internal locking seatpost cool, Biopace cool, don't hear too much about these. Oversized aluminum rear triangle makes a stiff, speedy ride!

Schwinn 564

I bought this bike new 1989. The Schwinn 564 is a great bike.
Still ride it today. I changed the front and rear derailer to Shimano 105 and put Mavic 04CD rims on it. It is light and very responsive for a 21 year old bike. I have road the Seattle to Portland bike ride, 200 miles in one day, 8 times on this bike. Great ride!!!!


Can't say I know much about Schwinn, but this is a very interesting bike... reminds me of the Cannondales of the same era (quality assembled aluminum with oversized tubes, etc). Lovin' the wishbone in the back (something that is coming into common practice with the carbon-fork-seat-stay jobs that are popular now).

Looks real good/modern for being 20 years old!


My second road bike...

Bought the scarlet version in 1990, and rode it for 10 years. Eventually ended up with RSX STI levers, Ultegra cranks/derailleurs, Cinelli bars/stem, San Marco Concor saddle prior to selling it on Ebay. Was an incredible climber and sprinter, and (unfortunately) a disappointing century bike due to the harsh ride, but at 18 years old, I didn't notice as much then.


My friend has this same frame but a 974...I have never seen this bike built up or any info about the bike. This is sweet though. Nice bike.

I really like these Schwinn

I really like these Schwinn 564. My best friend rides one, super classy with awesome details. The seatpost is awesome, the wishbone stay is cool too. Nice find!
