    Chrome Continental Pix







    Got some new rims today (+ another set to do one of the other three). I would have mounted a bar today as well, but I did not have anything with the same clamp size as the Schwinn stem.

    That's mighty sweet.

    Did you end up using one of the Pyramid forks?

    In the friendly spirit of the Single Speeds' thread
    "what don't you like about my bike," I'll be the
    first to point out you need to blingify your pedals!

    By the same token, you must have agonized
    over the color possibilities for the head tube
    Schwinn logo emblem... you made a great choice!

    Its a chrome Schwinn fork off a Continental II (and I need two more for 22" frames if anyone got 'em ).

    She's getting built up reasonably close to stock. Those pedals are the best set I had from the good Pastor. The other Atoms need a bit of oxalic acid before I use them.

    What clamp size do you need Kurt? I've got a couple sets of old Continental/Varsity bars just sitting out on the deck holding up the snow; if they fit your needs they're yours to have for the price of shipping.

    Kurt, I have a Chrome fork from a 22" Mens Continental that's bent and I don't need. What is the steerer tube length you need?

    I have chromey varsity drops too if you need.

    26.0 for the triangle cross-section S stem. I'm probably limited to the Conti's aluminum bars. I'll take you up on that if you don't need them.

    Same steerer length as the 22" men's frames. Where is it bent - fork blades or steerer? Got a pic? If on the blades, I'll gladly take it off your hands

    Better yet, what happened to the snow on the ground?

    Oh... Miami...

    But on a more serious note, are those frames all the same size? What's the plan when they're done?

    I installed the wheel reversed when testing the fit - the fork needs to be cold set to the left just a tad, and I was trying to determine whether the fork or the wheel was the culprit for the offset.

    Hopefully exhibit all three, built up, carressing the chrome '70 Paramount P13-9 at this year's Fort Lauderdale Classic & Custom bike show. I don't know if I'll have the room to keep them though - might have to trade all of them off for something else ("Owner of three Continentals looking to economize - seeks Schwinn Paramount")

    Ha, I tried to improvise one while taking photos a few months back and luckily had my camera auto-bracketing the exposures:

    It's a slight bend somewhere between the steerer tube, the crown and the fork legs. Look at the pics, and look at the sierra brown super sport fork, can that one be saved?
