    Ten years later... Paramount was still king. LeTour and Super LeTour were both nice bikes. There was one between the LeTours and Paramount. I forget what it was called.

    I was once told that stimulation, from vibration, can cause this. With that in mind, maybe it was the motorcycle, not the bicycle, but it may have been either one or the combination.

    Looking at the serial number, yeah, it is a 50cm. My friend said it was a 56 and I did not bother actually measuring it. He has not ridden the bike in so long, I guess he just didn't remember.
