The Oldroads categories typically consider balloon and middleweight to be the 26"x 2.25 and 26x1.75, respectively, 559 mm bead seat diameter (or 571 26x1 3/4 for schwinns). Roadsters typically have bigger wheels, from (590) 26x1 3/8 up to (635) 28x 1 1/2, and epicyclic hubs. Your bike doesn~t look light, but might belong in the lightweight discussion area where the 27" and 700C wheels and the derailleurs hang out.

or are these classified as roadsters?
