    Seeing Double (the SECOND chrome Paramount arrives)



    No, it's not a left-hand drive copy of my '70 - it is an all-chrome '72 P-13. Full, period-correct Nuovo (unlike my '70, which has the Weinmann 999 brakeset), high-flange hubs, and Mavic 700C tubulars which I'll probably swap out for clinchers - provided I can find a decent set of clincher hoops.

    I'd ordinarily post a slew of photos immidiately following - but there is a rainstorm at present, and I can't get to the shed in order to photograph it.

    Sorry!

    Pictures once the rainstorm clears.

    In all fairness, I do intend to publish a "Top 5 Overrated C&V Roadbike List," and the Paramount happens to be one of the five.

    Being a fat ****, I find that the thicker seat tube makes the frame stiffer right where I want it to be. I wouldn't suggest a Paramount to a lightweight.

    Whatever I can get my grubby little hands on.

    Next one has to be the French-build though - no sense in hoarding these parts if I don't do it.
