This frame was on my short list. At 62cm I'm hoping my legs are not too short. Without further ado:



Did I mention it was packed very well.

Freakin' awesome. And this hits close to home for me; I own a bike shop that's a Jamis dealer and I own an early '70's chrome Paramount.

A hair shy of 59cm. I have 61cm Miyata that fits and I'm hoping this one will also. I have a long torso so the only issue is reaching the pedals. My cranks are 165 so that might help.

And it looks even better in person. The second owner never rode it and I doubt the first owner put many miles on it either.

For now I have a mix of 600 (derailleurs and calipers) and VeloOrange. I have their chromed crankset that's very cool. The dropbars have shellacked black tape and nice VO Grand Cru non-areo brake levers. The shifters are bar end silver shifters. I'm getting highly polished VO rims and a friend is lacing Campy Record hubs. The freewheel is either a 6 cog DA or an uknown brand 7 cog that has modern ramping. The spacing is 120mm. I do have a Campy FD but I may hold off. I plan to used gumwall tires - not sure of size 23, 25, or 28 depending on rim.

I've built and ridden a few Jamis bikes. I think one was a Quest with 613 tubes and another was a Quest. They are fine bikes.

Yes, the Jamis Quests of recent years are Reynolds 631 frames. My wife has a Quest in fact, a very nice bike.

Congratulations again on your Paramount frame! What year is it?

Holy Buckets...finally, something I don't feel the need to polish!! Seriously nice.

And Scott Ryder sent my Fuji Professional in an honest to goodness Fuji bike box. However, it wasn;t a period correct bike box so I was just a tad disappointed!
