2001 Schwinn PowerMatic

Holy heavy!  Built this up in college and it was so heavy I didn't ride it much.

Seriously, this thing is a tank.

the chainwheel is GT also, stock on GT Fly, and I think Thumper as well, late 90's early 2000's

Re: 2001 Schwinn PowerMatic

Hmm.  I looked those up and they look pretty much the same, but there's no stamp or decal on mine.  I bought it in 2004 for like 5 bucks from a shop that was going out of business.  It wasn't in a package or anything, just had a price sticker on it and it was in a bin with a bunch of other random parts.  I think it's just a cheap knock-off because although it's aluminum, it's really not very thick, and I would expect a halfway decent ring to at least have a stamp showing the number of teeth, but this one doesn't.
