LOL Olas sorry for your accident but what mileage you get from Specialized ? I get around 5 beers/20 km on my Gary if i'm lucky.

Olas;

I will bet the director sportif of sky is now VERY MUCH regretting leaving Sir Bradley Wiggins off of their TdF squad, correct?? frown

I can sort of understand their rationale, there being only ONE single 'contre la montre', and MUCH elevation gain in this year's route, but still there is a greater than excellent chance that the ex world class and champion pursuiter would be in (and finish) within the top three. wink

^^^NICE!! thumbsup

When I started racing as a 14 year old 'intermediate' (the age classes were VERY different back then) in 1970, in Joyzee, there was a club/team out of the Sommerville area called the Somerset Wheelmen, (I believe they are still around, based out of Flemington now) and almost all of them rode Campy equipped Paramounts of that era (531 tubing back then, correct?).


Sorry I missed your post. Paramounts of that era were built either with Reynolds 531 or Columbus SL (SP) in the larger sizes. My casual empiricism suggests that 531 frames were probably more prevalent. My Paramount is built from Reynolds 753. Although the frame is in really good shape, I'm sending it to Waterford to be completely redone with new paint and decals, putting it back exactly as original. Since my original post, The Eddy Merckx Titanium wore out. It didn't fail, it just developed too much slop in the bottom bracket. It was very recently replaced by a custom built Lynskey.

Lynskeys are COOL! thumbsup

My Merlin Road is also getting a little bit 'whippy' in the chainstay area as well, but still not too bad yet.

I would go carbon next, but am still a little wary over the way they just shear/crack, sometimes with NO warning or without even hitting a pothole/bump (see Alberto Contador's bike in this year's Tour eek ).

The era (and riders) of Paramounts I was speaking of were BEFORE 753 was even around!! grin2

I remember when 753 was introduced, and the whole Dutch Raleigh pro squad were riding frames built of the lighter tubing in the Tour that year. wink
