Schwinn Parmount Ti ~2000

I wanted to share a family member's bike:

2000 Schwinn Paramount Ti (Serotta):

Purchased the bike from Colorado Cyclist; parted out as a liquidation special - all sorts of random parts, including extra long cranks and SPOX wheels (yellow spokes). The bike was gradually updated; CK wheelset from Colorado cyclist ~ 2010 followed by Duraace 9000 soon after.

The frame is classic road geometry - threaded headset/stem, 26.0 handlebar

Less obvious parts list:

First gen EEbrakes (pre Cane Creek)
CK headset 1" and ceramic threadfit 24 BB
King Ti cages
Litespeed Ti threaded stem
Prima 199 handlebar
Salsa Ti quick releases


The bike now has a new Brooks Ti saddle (not shown)

Paint work and welding is exceptional.

Go fast metal!

Wowza. I used to wrench at a Schwinn shop in the East Bay a long time ago...I'd always ogle the Paramounts set up high in the rafters. And of course the special order ones you could see in the catalogs.

Superb.

Really, really nice...

All the details really work on that bike. It looks like attention was paid to total weight. What was the result?

very nice example of the breed...looks like it's in primo condition!

can you tell me the S/N on the BB shell? from what I've read, there were 756 made.

as I've mentioned on some other threads, I have a Ti Paramount that is reportedly the prototype built by Serotta and presented to Schwinn. bike was featured with DA 7700 components.

there are a few differences between mine and production bikes...a Serotta F1 fork, anodized head badge, and a Serotta S/N. have had it next to a production model and the paint color is noticeably different.

based on the short production run, don't think these bikes were received by the market all that well...

I really like these bikes, appreciate you showcasing yours.
