Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I had to rewrite my original post.In my haste to post I sounded like a stuck up hipster when I reread the post a few hours when I returned from a day out.May I introduce my 50th Anniversary schwinn paramount S/S.I purchased this from a gentlemen in Cali a few years ago from eBay.Unknown to me at the time of purchase this frame set is the official 50th Anniversary edition and one of 600 made.The person I purchased this from set it up real nice.Surprisingly this bike sat on eBay for a while.My other 2 S/S bikes are a stock Bianchi Pista and my favorite is my 09 Langster polished aluminum frameset.

Im looking forward to and enjoying every one of these bikes being posted.Thanks to everyone giving me the opportunity to share on this site.

Picked up this pretty Bridgestone yesterday for $300. Unsure of the year, but I was assured that it is all NJS. Feeling pretty stoked.

Thanks man. I'm usually more of a lurker than a buyer so it feels good to finally snag a good one.

Antmaster5000 - I have to agree that Bridgestone is nice.
Tejanotrackie - Is that concept aluminum or Carbon?
Belacqua - Your old man build looks very comfortable.

My POS before this morning's commute.



The studded tires are off, but I'm leaving it in 42/18 for the next couple of weeks to acquire «constitutional wind» and avoid «Easter knees.»

Picked this little gem up off Craigslist yesterday for 10 bucks. About and hour of tearing it apart and test fitting parts I had laying around and it's starting look like a fun ride.

So far just from coasting down my driveway(no chainring bolts in it yet)I can tell I'll need to swap out my stem for a shorter one. Eventually I'll put my fixed/free wheelset on it and it will be my daily do everything bike.

It's at 42/15 right now with a half link. The chain will have proper tension when I put the chainring bolts on.

09’ langster polished has Sugino 42x16
langster street has 48x17

I havent taken the paramount for a ride as of yet.I’ve been playing with my recumbent tadpole converting it to electric when it came up on eBay.I purchased it and put it on the back burner for now.

700x35 Continental Cyclocross Race tires on Sun Mistral hard and rims. They'll have a little less clearance when I swap to the wider rims. I'm pretty sure I can fit my 700x42 Specialized Triggers on it for more plushness.

^^ The lamp base is pretty cool looking. Based on the look of the switch my guess is it's old.

What's the lady laughing at?

That's my step daughter laughing at my other 4 year old daughter trying to get into all the pictures. If you look closely you can see my oldest holding back my youngest. That lamp is old,it's a Tiffany. My wife's side job/hobby is collecting and flipping vintage furniture and jewelery.

your paramount runs about one inch more than my raleigh. I run 53x19 on 32mm. 75-78 inches is a sweet spot for me. Yours looked very similar, so I was just curious. Nice bikes. Cheers.
