Schwinn Paramount: Curved Seat Tube

Schwinn Paramount Curved seat tube

Schwinn Paramount track bikes are a classic you rarely see in such condition, and the curved seat tube model seems to be even harder to come by. These surfaced in the 70’s and the intended purpose of the curved seat tube was to shorten the wheelbase; thus improving the handling and aerodynamics. Read a little more at Classic Cycle and see a little more below.

    I love the colors of this bike, I found a short coupled Schwinn Superior frame (prototype not sprint) and painted it the same color. I used black brooks seat and tape vs honey color.
