This Schwinn Paramount is a 56cm center to top. It has a 32.5" standover height. All of its component and geometry information can be found at the bottom of this post.
The Schwinn Paramount is literally the best or "paramount" Schwinn frame. All are collectible. This is a Japanese-made model, and it has a large "OS" decal which means "over-sized." This tubing was over-sized in order to make it with less steel but the same strength. It is about a half pound lighter than comparable frames, according to Schwinn.
The paint job is a blue with bright red speckles. It is pretty awesome. There are double Paramount decals running down the front of the fork.
This bicycle is available for purchase. $850.
