1992 Paramount series 30-nice riding bike

I just got a Paramount MTB. It was for sale locally-$70-, in nice enough shape and it street rides nice.It will make a great urban/suburban/trail go anywhere type bike.

I like the blast from the past splatter paint job-this paint scheme was popular in the late 80's early 90's.

I'm probably just going to sell it after playing with it for a while.Frame is 19" I usually ride 13-15".

Nice find. That's a good price for the condition it seems to be in. It sucks that the size is wrong for you. You'll definitely make a little money when you re-sell it.

Yes, it is a nice bike, rides very nice and will make a great urban/suburban/trail go anywhere bike.

I'm accustomed to riding bikes with too tall frames, but 19" is too tall for a long term keeper. I like the ride quality of bigger frames-a bit more flex- and the seat to handlebar angle on a too tall bike lets you ride a bit more upright.Still the standover is 29.75 I like about 26-27".

Wish it was a bit shorter, but it will be fun to play with until I sell it.The PO is once removed from the 1st owner, and he says it hung in a garage for 15 years.It isn't dinged up in any way, but a couple of the decals are partially missing.The original owner power washed the dust off, and might have partially blasted a bit of the decals off.
Nice bike.
Thanks
Charlie
