I finally got around to measuring the frame of the ‘72 Paramount I pulled from a neighbor’s junk pile last week and much to my surprise, this frame looks like it could be my size. I guess the small diameter steel tubes had me thinking the bike is a 53cm frame.
The top tube is roughly 23” and the down tube is a 22”, would you say this frame is a 56cm frame? When I compare it to my other two road bikes the Paramount frame is very close. I was thinking I would strip the frame and hang it in my office at home but now I’m thinking I could ride the bike.
Since most of the components are not stock right now, I might look into putting modern campy components on the bike instead of vintage. Has anyone else done that to their 70’s Paramount?
