A very sad day. just listed my Paramount on Ebay. Given the new spoused imposed (and garage space required) one bike in, one bike out, rule, something had to give with the acquistion of the Giant.
The bike has historical value, mostly for me for my personal memeories, but it also was the best Paramount ever built and the last great bike built by the original Schwinn company.
Really didn't want to part with it, but just didn't see tehre would be too many occassions to ride the backup, backup road bike. So off it goes.
