It's exaggerated by the focal length, but yes, that's a Cinelli #66 with a 158mm drop. I've since changed to a mod. 64 which has a 138 drop.

Seriously - what says America better than a red white and blue Schwinn Paramount track bike? The only way to make that more patriotic is to have it ridden by a mom carrying an apple pie to a baseball game while singing "Coming to America".

I met a fellow at the shop that has a gold TS Isaac.

Fun to take a look at the very nice lug work in person.
