Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Thanks, yeah, the guy who called my ambulance reassured me with "hips are plug and play these days" (not what I got anyway) but I keep thinking of my very slow and hard recovery. The realtor's mother got it a few years ago and was walking around the next day though.

Thanks! And yes, drive-throughs suck and are terrible, but worse is coffee places that open late... one of the reasons I don't go to most cute local places is they open several hours after Starbucks' 5am. One place in Kona opens at 9am, as if people there aren't going to be obviously jet-lagged.

They're nice bikes. I paid more for my Paramount frame set than any complete bike. But then I paid nearly as much for the Trek 930 frame set. $850 though........
He'll probably get it. It is a Paramount, and dollars are different now, from when I was buying bikes. And you do have income.
Do eet.

Check out the bottom bracket shell protector!

What’s the history or the purpose of that model? Just a road bike?

My favorite local cafe opens at 7am on weekdays. That's early enough for me.

I think the Circuit was the top of Schwinn's Lightweight, non-Paramount models. AFAIK, they were made for only about 5 or so years, from maybe 1985-1989. 1988 and 1989 both got Shimano's Sante groupset. They were made with Columbus SP or SL depending on size, and at least the 88 and 89 had a Tange aero fork and seatstays, and Cinelli bar and stem. The for, and the seat and chainstays were chromed.

That ain't happening. Most portable generators do not produce enough power to charge a car. Then, you have the issue of exhaust emissions in a closed trunk. There may be more.

The Circuit might have replaced the Peloton ?

Don't know if they were offered at the same time

The bikes (frames) are fairly similar

When I travel, I have to either buy coffee the night before, or, more commonly lately, take instant with me. Nobody opens at five.

Looked it up. I found a $2000 Honda portable generator is rated for 1800w, and can run at that power output for 3.2 hrs on one, one gallon tank. Standard Model 3 take 50,000 w to charge fully, so you'd need to run it for 28 hours to charge the battery, and use 8.6 gal of fuel. That 28 hours of charging will get you 220 miles, giving you about 25.6 mpg.
