Pulled the trigger on a road bike to keep the fixed gear company.

1992 Schwinn Paramount PDG Series 5

This is not "the exact one" but it's identical (minus the aerobars, TT pump, and saddle bag).

yes, well, let's say it's a "remix". It's actually some argentinan folclore and I placed beats and synth around it or so.

Well, I've had this baby for the past couple weeks. Rides like a charm. Can you tell that this bike was made in 1992? :lol:

Aquatek. Nice frame. well, the colors leave a bit to be desired. But that rear triangle looks tight as my girls ass! Awesome find! enjoy the ride.

BTW looks like Shimano 600 series. I have them on my old Cannondale that I strap a kid's seat onto so I can ride with my daughter. Nice components from back in the day.

Welded seat stays like those always worry me when I see them. Not only do they look like they could break, but if they do, it's very sharp object pointed right at your ass :)
