    A few updated pictures of the Paramount

    I recently had the wheels re-laced with Campagnolo high flange NR hubs and double butted spokes. I also installed a Campagnolo SS rear derailleur cable housing. I thought I would share some pictures.

    Gorgeous bike, I'm sure it's a pleasure to ride. I think it would be nice if you had equal spacing between the 3 cable clamps on the top tube. Perhaps move the one closest to the seat, just a little be further back toward the seat.

    Kurt, I am waiting on a provenance report that I should have in a few days. After I receive it I would like to update the registry if I could.

    Silver Creek, looks great! I would love to see it in person. It does need a different freewheel. Another option would be a Suntour Perfect with copper colored cogs. Let me know if I can help with one.

    Silver Creek,

    That is utterly beautiful, I only hope mine will turn out half as nice.

    Beautiful bike! I would install an ultra-6 speed freewheel and work out a good gear ratio progression and, of course, move the rear cable clamp back, but that's all minor.

    I have to laugh about the location of the cable clamp. A few of the members here have been teasing me about being so particular because I've been trying to make this bike as original as possible and a couple of you have commented about the incorrectly spaced cable clamp. When I first got the Paramount the clamp was one of the first things I noticed that wasn't right and one of the last things I corrected. Thanks for reminding me.

    I think there is one other thing not correct that's fairly obvious and I've been waiting for someone to say something.

    There, I evenly spaced the cable clamps.

    Could it be that the pedals should be all silver, Nova Record, or Record?

    Could it have something to do with the bar tape, or plugs at end of your handlebars?

    I beleive the pedal color and bar tape is correct. You're getting close though.
