    Yeah, I'd swap those out in a heartbeat, but the rest of the ride is way nice....

    Looks like flatlander gearing… or it could be what the “real men” used back in the day (you know, “the day”, where they had whiskey in their bottles instead of water).

    That's a beautiful sample of what the bikes were "back in the day." Schwinn made a touring version and a road racing version of the Paramount. The one pictured is the touring version. the RR version, if memory serves me correctly, had a shorter wheelbase, tighter clearances, and a more upright geometry. It also had Campy sidepulls and downtube shifters.

    Its a nice bike to hang on the wall or in a bike shop.

    But if its not Carbon I dont want it, I am too old and too grumpy to be lugging a steel bike on a century ride.

    This Schwinn would not be my choice for long ride either, believe me. I would ride that C-50 any day for any kind of distance or training with pleasure and then some (although the two bikes are not even from the same planet). The more I think about that C-50, if I were to get a carbon bike it would make the short list of choices. Carbon has come such a long way. If I owned this Schwinn though I would cruise that sucker around the neighborhood, lake front and stuff like that. Places that I wouldn't want to take a bike with clipless pedals. The weight of that Schwinn really gets killed with some of its components, (saddle, post, wheels, BB, etc.). I have a 70's luged Raleigh Record with suicide brakes in the garage that probably weighs similar but it really does ride like nothing else and caries some nice momentum. That chrome though is all that, My Lord that thing is bright.

    I've only seen a few chrome Paramounts. You could give me this bike any day & I'd happily ride a century on it. I'd change the brake levers and the brakes. After that, I'd be good to go.

    I'd hang on to the brakes but the levers would have to go.....I kinda like center pulls, at least the way they look.
