Did anyone here take the grey PARAMOUNT P-15 with the stuck seatpost?

On Ebay a couple days ago. My size, thought about it. Didn't. Hope it's somewhere warm and cozy.

One of the latest-production Paramounts I've seen. Too bad it's not in the Registry.

The seat post is in deep to and it looks like someone may have tried clamping the post in a vice.

My attitude has been that at some point a Paramount will present itself to me and I will get it, not via Ebay. Every now and then though I come close to losing my cool.

I never saw the listing, but I would have passed on this one due to lack of chrome. To me that just doesn't look right.

Yes, and yes.

From experience, I can also say that Nuovo seatposts are amongst the worst to free - when they get stuck.
