Flaunt your bike with oversized steel tubing
 
As there seems to be some interest in this - why not a dedicated thread!?

This thread wellcomes any bike with a frame made out of oversized steel tubing. MAX, Minimax, Excel, EL OS, Oria or any other make or model tubing in larger than classic dimensions.

Merckx Corsa Extra in MAX

Dang, If I had one with OS tubing, it would be Masi's 3V Volumetrica.....
But so far, no luck finding that bike in the right size, color, condition.......and price....:rolleyes:

Once again I can't post photos from the mobile site. I wanted to post my 92 Paramount PDG 7.

It's frustrating when a site pretends everything functions correctly. Pretending is easy and fun!

Are you using the mobile option?

1995 Carrera - Columbus EL with "Carrera" on the sticker, so I think it is a variant of OS. different tube diameters than my EL Ciöcc. Ovalized at the bottom bracket. It's on my list of "take to my grave" bikes.

Yes. This time I used 'manage attachments'. Nothing. Last time I clicked on the insert picture icon. Same.

MXL with a colour code Merckx called "TAL". I hated it when I got it and planned a repaint. But it is in perfect shape and I have sort of got used to it by now - a lot of years later. Will probably get the 10V Record treatment.

My first build, 1992 Paramount series 5, sourced a nos Shimano 105 group, Campy Omicron rims, 7 speed free hub. Paint scheme has not grown on me, and frame is a bit small, probably the first in the fleet to go. Great ride regardless

Maybe the BS "wall" is getting in the way? ;)

Have the same problem, always have to switch to full site for pics. Series 7 is a nice bike.

I have a Stelvio
can't find any info on it

Hudson308 01-10-19 09:06 AM

Schwinn called this "1-1/8" tubing". Does that count? :innocent:

Just goes to show there's no accounting for (my) taste! I like both those paint jobs a lot! If that Paramount is 60cm c to c or larger and you want to sell the frameset send me a pm.

I sold this to a friend about a year ago to make room for a dedicated touring bike. It was a great bike

The latest configuration for my Merckx by NBend, on Flickr

styggno1 01-10-19 02:01 PM

I do have a lot of steel bikes (about 30 and of which at least 17-18 are ready to use) and/but If someone twisted my arm really hard and I had to choose only one bike to use a Merckx MX Leader would be my choice. There are others that are more important to me and/or are better looking - but this one would be my choice if I had to loose the rest.

Today it has 10V down tube shifters but this pic with 10v bar end is a bit better.
