Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

That looks like a fun ride. Is that original paint? I looks like it but is in great shape given the age. I like the bars, what are they?

Thanks! The paint is original. It looks better in the pictures than it does in person, but it's in pretty good shape. The bars are Klunker bars from Velo Orange.

Thanks ! Yes, it is a 1976 Schwinn Paramount P14. I repainted it, so it is missing the decals.

I hang out in the Classic and Vintage section of the forum so I'm familiar with Zeus. I would love to stumble upon a nice group someday. I love those high-flange hubs, the aero seat post, pretty much everything about it.

I live on Spain, some parts aren't that expensive here, you can find track hubs(front) for 40 euros, same with headsets ,the more expensive are the cranks. There are a lot of Zeus 2000 parts around here.

Some of their products were similar to Campagnolo designs, but not all were. I know this is the SS/Fixed-Gear forum, but come-on, how could you not love that RD?

It's a Cube Agree Pro (ex-rental), but rebranded as a Colinabo (Spanish-speakers will get the joke). Couldn't be more of a mishmash, but it is bombproof, stiff, silent, and I ride it everywhere.

Thank you. It's come a long way since I picked it up on Craigslist a decade ago. It was almost new old stock condition with full Champagne 105.

Pretty sweet in its past life too. Did you keep the old parts?
