Fun thread! A lot of good stuff on here. Here's my go-to ride. I LOVE this bike!!! It comes alive on passes (up and down). It's truly all the best of classic and new (Centaur 10 gruppo, Proton wheelset, Chorus carbon seatpost, Fly saddle). Should we play guess the frameset? (couple hints if you look closely)

Sometimes, the best use of old steel you can find is to tell your friend on his $3000 tri-bike that your bikes(s) cost less than his wheel set.....


combined......


then, to outride him is just as fun....

I like the black one. Looks like it was dipped in a vat of the darkside Big Bossman was talking about.

My 1991 Waterford Paramount. I added RSX brifters after I tried some Shimano barcons and didn't like them. I love the brifters on this bike. Drivetrain is all tricolor 600.

Hey thanks! I think T-mar figured out that it was probably an 89 Giro. The rims are Omega Stradas.

Rabid I dig the Paramount. The paint is similar to the style on my Nishiki. How is the ride? Lp

The fork is a generic chrome fork, something that I found in a LBS. It looks a lot nicer than the unicrown that came with it... Headset is Dura Ace

Hawley USA part FORK1133. Formerly a Pyramid-distributed part discontinued from their lineup in '07. Pyramid variants are sans eyelets, Hawley forks have them.

Careful using them for large frames - washer slot is cut thin enough to bust when a stem is not sufficently long enough to reach the unthreaded portion (this one was from Hawley, no manufacturer's stamping):




This said, I did not have any problems with one of the Pyramid-distributed forks when cut short to fit my '85 Super Course:

i really like the more sloping crown on your fork. it seems to follow the lines of the bike a bit better than the stock unit. if i come across one i'll grab it.

again, thanks!

Thanks.... I recently sold my CAAD4 frame, and migrated all the 2006/7 Centaur 10spd parts over to the Miyata, along with the Reynolds Ouzo Pro, which doesn't clash nearly as badly as I thought it would. In fact, it looks pretty nice. She is now blacker than black (similar to RobbieTunes Centurion above), and though it's heresy, I have to say I prefer both the Ouzo Pro and the Italian drive train on my Japanese bike.

My 80ish Bianchi 'beater'.



When I get my 86 Bianchi road frame repainted, I'll strip this bike to rebuild that one.

Not sure if my bike qualifies as 'vintage'...but it's certainly not new.

Its a '92 (could be 91) R400. Bike was free from a friend & also my first road bike in about 15 years...

How it looked when I recieved it:


Made some changes including the downtube shifters to Campy Chorus 8spd & rear der (Circa '96) (also free!)




The 8spd work great with the 7 in the back (frame can't be spread for more spacing).
