Always wanted a Paramount (waited 45 years) Bought the frame on ebay 2 years ago. Had most of the components on other bikes, so I put them on, spoked up a couple of wheels and Voila! My Dream Bike Zoe came to life! None of this new fangled aluminum or carbin fiber for me. Steel is the way to go for longevity, flexability, comfort and strength.

My late 80s or early 90s Saronni I got the other week.
I've stripped it, it's going to be sandblasted and I'll respray it and apply the new decals I have.
Sad the rear rim is gold and the front silver...but otherwise the Suntour components are in good condition and fit with the rest of the bike.
Tubular wheels. New seat coming.

Beautiful bike RogueMerc! And man, I thought I loved my bike by storing it in my bedroom closet. But you took it to a whole nother level by storing it right by your bed!

Lots of fantastic rides all! Keep the pics coming. Some bike pics are verging on bike ****....

One thought though, it seems that many of the posters really need a proper bike setup. Many of the contact points - saddle, handlebar - are adjusted in a peculiar way.

[SIZE= medium]I agree re bike set up. [/SIZE]
[SIZE= medium]For some I’d be starting with the bike on a level surface and putting a level on the seats. [/SIZE]

A proper setup in my view is one that helps you generate the best compromise in safety, comfort, overall power output for the legs and aerodynamics. In that order. Even among people who are the same height with identical arm, torso and leg lengths, one fit may not be desirable for both. For example, it is possible that a 25 year old racing wiz would have a drastically different setup from an identically sized man 30 years older. The 20 something guy will likely have overall good muscle tone, small belly, decent back, good cardio. The same may not be necessarily true for the other man.

There is also experience as a factor. Leaning over at a 45 degree angle is not comfortable for everyone, especially not when they are starting out. As a really obvious example, if you have a large pot belly or beer gut, this is a problem. I remember someone talking about bit fitting as a side story to the Tour De France on TV where they stated that beginners are better off with higher handlebars, wheras professionals/advanced amateurs will get more power/better aerodynamics with lower handlebars.

With triathlon/time trial bikes, the issues become even trickier. I found a good article on this:
http://bethelcycle.com/articles/debunking-three-tri-bike-fitting-myths-pg287.htm

I also forgot to mention the scenario of someone who does both triathlons as well as conventional road biking. Because of how the typical setups for both sports place different emphasis as to which leg muscles get used more, they might also have different setups in their non-specialty bike/non specialty bike setup if they have more experience in one sport over the other.
