    Paramount PDG series 70

    I purchased a nice 1992 paramount series 70 frame and fork that has a bunch of crap parts on it that I am going to be switching out to something as NEAR period correct as I can but functional for town trips to the brewery and some dirt thrown in from time to time.

    I am wondering if any experts out there with paramounts can share the seat tube diameter with me. I am also wondering if the head tube and steerer is 1 inch or 1 1/8th.

    This will help narrow down my upgrade search a ton. I will post up some before and afters when the time comes.

    Thanks in advance.

    1 1/8 fork for sure

    Seat tube should be 26.8mm. Use calipers to confirm or check the existing seatpost. The size is usually stamped on in near the minimum insert line.

    Ok, if it's the black frame with blue paramount you got a pretty nice bike there. Does it still have the rigid fork? If so here is what the catalogue says.

    Lugged silver brazed OS frame built if Tange Prestige

    The fork is the Tange ultra-lite 38mm rake fork.

    Very nice. Sorry catalogue doesn't specify sizes of parts. If you want list of period correct parts let me know.

    That is the one. Silver brazed with the sculpted cable guides on the lugs, original fork.

    I had found scans of the catalog and no, it did not have the info I had requested, hence the post.

    I try not to bother posting with out good reason.

    I appreciate the help crossracer. I have the bike now and it will be a fun platform for my build. It has a mavic wheel set with pulstar hubs, presumably off an old parkpre or something. I am not sure if they will make the final cut.

    Either way I am going to ride the piss out of this thing.

    My TIG welded 91 PDG 70 has a 26.6 post. They switched to brazing in 92. Both were OS Prestige, but I'm not sure if they made any size changes in the tubing to accommodate for the different fabrication technique.
