    Price for early '90s Schwinn Paramount?

    Edit: typo in thread title. It is early 2000's, not 90's.
    What would you pay for a 56cm Schwinn Paramount (from the early 2000's) with full Campy 8sp (except front deraileur which is Dura Ace)? Carbon fork and handlebars, Campy Vento wheels. Other details are unknown, I saw it in a classified ad.

    I'm going to send this to the C&V appraisal forum, where you'll probably get some more replies...

    There were two versions, so it really depends on whether the bike is the lugged Reynolds 853 steel version built by Match Cycle (Tim Isaac), or the TIG welded titanium version built by Ben Serotta. They have identical geometry.

    Both are really nice bikes and prices for both versions vary quite a bit. Framesets seem to go for nearly as much as complete bikes, and I've seen both steel and Ti complete bikes go for between $600 and $1500.

    Geometry (too bad the catalog editor couldn't spell Paramount):



    Serotta built Ti version:



    Match built 853 lugged steel version:
