Interesting, thanks. That ad for the Mixte is still up. I can't believe some Brooklyn Hipsterette doesn't want all that cool vintage bling for just $275. Just because I think it's cool-looking and I sort of want it, here's picture of a blue PX-10 going for $450, also on Craigslist in Brooklyn.

(It's funny, I started trolling Craigslist because I was looking for a used bike for my girlfriend. I found one and bought it--a practical 3-speed commuter--but now I've discovered this site and I can't stop looking at vintage bikes.)

I passed on an original one (same color, but this looks like a 22" frame) for $200 many years ago. Parts on the original weren't that fancy so this one, while not original, is not defiled in the worst way imaginable and probably has some changes you'd have made to it had it been yours.

Sadly, in my experience it's the lenses of the Soubitez headlight and taillight and the tips of the plastic levers that take a beating. And I've seen the result of someone attempting to tote a buddy on that rear rack. More sadness.

So it wasn't mostly Campy, I have seen a few of these that were full on and gorgeous. One at Eroica and it was awesome.

I don't know the specs of the line at that time, but I know Campy was available at extra cost at times; you could pay extra for Campy brakes on a Paramount that was otherwise all Campy. The ladies' Paramount that I saw had, I believe, Shimano Crane rear derailleur, Nervar crank and had centerpulls like the one pictured above. It might have had Campy hubs but not much else. The one you saw at Eroica might have had the Campy retrofitted. I'd be surprised if a stepthrough came that way but I'm sure someone more knowledgeable will let us know for sure.

So according to the googlesphere and as I thought/remembered the 73,4,and 5 Schwinn catalogs show the ladies Paramount being full Campy save for the brakes and the rear derailleur on the 15 speed deluxe touring model being the Crane long cage/Schwinn approved GT300. Campy brakes were optional and all of this holds mostly true for the men's models as well. Like I said, imho the subject in question has been defiled and rather poorly so.

Also, the one I saw at Eroica was original, with provenance on loan for the ride to see if the woman wanted to own a very cool piece of cycling history as it was in very good full functioning condition. I would be willing to bet she owns that Paramount now, she was thrilled with it and I did my best to bolster her feelings as I love these and can't wait to find my wife one.

Anyone looking for a 60s Raleigh three speed?
I don't want a men's model and don't really prefer the blue, but it's still tempting at $40.

Raleigh Vintage Bike - $40 (chancellorsville)
Vintage Raleigh Men's Bike in good condition. Smooth ride with leather seat.

$40 for that brooks seat alone if it is in good condition. Although it does look a little dry. You can part out the rest and make your investment back on the bay.

Or someone could give it a loving home, and happily write posts about it in the "For the love of 3 speeds" thread.

Serotta - Auction Buffalo

This is not a make I know of - and I'm broke even if I did....

I can't tell much from the photo but thought I'd share. Per the ad "High end bicycles (Serotta, Specialized, Stumpjumper) plus lots of bike parts" so may not be a deal as they have taken time to google the names

Lol or that too. I've salvaged too many raleighs for parts dedicated for my main 3 speed I've become desensitized to it. Sorry for the cold post.

haha no that's okay! Totally makes sense. I was just trying to offer the other alternative as well.
I get into this mode of wanting to save all the bike orphans, which of course I can't do.

There are two pair of the exact same pedals you mentioned sitting on my shelf in the shop, but I'm leaning more towards some nice alloy platforms on this bike.

This bike feels "intuitive", and you are spot-on about that frame; it feels light and tight, yet still soaks up the bumps much like the Ishiwata 024 on my Ross. So I want to be able to engage the drivetrain intuitively too. I'll revisit SPD if I ever decide to take it touring.


These pedals? I love these on my grocery bike. No fumbling just pedal and go. With pretty much any SPD pedal you should be able to firmly plant you foot on the pedal to get up a little speed and then worry about clipping in

Look at this beautiful yellow Fuji. I know it wasn't high end, and all, but it sure is appealing. Leather saddle and new tires.
