Schwinn`s 2005-2006 Sting Pro
BMX Frame Story and Review.

"Schwinn Keeps Serving Aluminum Lasagna".


The Schwinn Sting Aluminum Lasagna Dinner

In 1995 Schwinn Bicycles rolled out the ( Schwinn ENF BMX Frame )
made out of pasta = Aluminum Lasagna. It was said to have been a first
aluminum Schwinn BMX frame....Ten years latter in year 2005 Schwinn
rolls out a BMX Sting Pro Frame. Keeping the Aluminum Lasagna on the
dinner table for the BMX community.

The dinner bells are ringing and talk about a hot looking
bmx frame on the dinner table that Schwinn is serving up.

The Schwinn 2005 Sting Pro Frame, A Race Red Color 6061 Aluminum,
with machined head tube, ( 20.5" top tube )TT and DT gussets, Ram Air
seat stay yoke with Epicenter seat stay,Euro BB with extruded CS yoke,
forged alloy dropout, - I say wow! Also a all new looking Schwinn logo
head badge and cool looking Schwinn STING logo stickers are on the
Sting Pro frame.............

You have to have a fork for a good lasagna dinner. Schwinn serves
dinner with The Fork - The Sting Pro has a Schwinn Special O.P.S.
Lite Full Cr-Mo Unicrown with 31.8 round blades, new dropouts for
14 mm axles, 1 piece CNC machined steerer tube.

To keep the frame and fork looking nice on the dinner table
at all times, The Sting Pro has The Headset - Tange DL-81
alloy cup with Cr-mo races.

As bmxers pull up to sit around the dinner table, Schwinn likes
to keep them there by adding a Seat Clamp - XS alloy with steel
threaded inserts to this Sting Pro Frame dinner.

Gene`s BMX Review Information:

This Sting Frame does NOT come with a Owners Manual.
I find that real strange as Schwinn is well known for
its owners manuals for most of there bikes and frames.

It has just a basic fork that is color black and not crome like
Schwinn shows in there specifications. The color is all ok with
me but the fork is about the same as on my Schwinn 95 ENF
but not crome. - I do not think you can add a 14mm axle to it.

There is NO place to use chain tensioners on the back stays
of the frame, like Schwinn says in there online specifications.
The little holes in the back stays are just cooling holes from
making the frame. There is no threads in the holes nor are the
holes big enuff to tap threads in to the holes, ( Photo 0017 )

Other than that, This Sting frame - on the main down tube,
( "where it says - STING" ) It is not round, - it is sort of a
square on round tube...."thats cool looking" - It is a 6061
Aluminum Frame with Ram Air Seat Yoke with Epicenter
seat stays and it runs a Euro Bottom Bracket....................
