Schwinn Releases the Mean Street

Van Homan decided to name his signature frame after the band Van Halen’s song, “Mean Streets.” Little Devil’s owner Derek Adams helped Van come up with the name, and did all the graphics for the frame.

The Mean Street is made from 4130 chromoly and weighs about six-and-a-half pounds in the 21″ top tube version (a 20.5″ version is also available). The Mean Street has externally machined head tube and bottom bracket and top and down tube gussets. You should be able to find the Mean Street at local Schwinn dealers soon. It comes in black only and will cost you $299.

Top Tube: 20.5″ or 21″
Head tube angle: 74.5
Seat tube angle: 70.5
Rear center: 15″
Weight: 6.5lbs (21″TT)
