1986 (?) Schwinn woodlands

1986 (?) Schwinn woodlands mountain bike we refurbished here at Bike Boom. If your'e not familiar, Bike Boom is a used bike shop in Davis square, on the border of Cambridge and Somerville , near Boston MA. where we specialize in restoring and refurbishing used and vintage bicycles and offer professional bicycle repair services.
This Schwinn woodlands was purchased in great condition with very low miles, refurbishing it included cables housing , brake pads and a good clean up and tune up. A lot of the entry level mountain bikes in the early-mid 80's were actually comfort bikes with road oriented drive train, usually with a large, double chain ring design instead of a standard three chain ring crankset. The Schwinn woodlands has a first generation Shimano indexed thumb shifter system. Women's mountain bikes from that era all the way to the mid 90's had a much more upright riding position than the men's versions of the same models, thus making them great cruisers, very comfortable, similar to today's comfort bikes.
