      What did Schwinn have to say about this bike? Original brochure states:

      . FRAME COMPONENTS: All frame components are manufactured from Reynolds 531 double butted tubing. Built with Reynolds 531 butted tubes, forks, and stays.
      a. The entire frame is manufactured from Reynolds 531 butted tubing.
      b. Butted tubes are manufactured in such a way that at the points of greatest stress (near the brazed joints), the guage of the tubing is thickened without, however, increasing the outside diameter. Double butted tubing therefore, is able to combine the ultimate in lightness with the ultimate in strength.
      c. "531" tubing is unaffected by the temperatures required in the hand brazing operation. The tubing therefore retains all of its original strength at the greatest points of stress.
      Additionally, all joints are further reinforced with Nervex Professional cut lugs. The rear stays are equipped with Campagnolo rear fork ends.
      All frame components are hand assembled.
      . FRAME SPECIFICATIONS: The P15 Paramount is available in seven frame sizes ranging from 20" to 26" (frame sizes are measured from the center of the crank hangar to the top of the seat mast). The head and seat mast are parallel with each other and form a 73-deg. angle with the wheelbase center line.
      . FRAME TRIM: Chrome trim on the head lugs, fork crown, six inches of chrome trim on the rear fork and stays and the front fork.
      . FORK: The fork is manufactured from Reynolds 531 butted tubing which again, combines the best in lightness with the best in strength and resiliency. The fork has a 2" rake and is equipped with Campagnolo Gran Sport fork tips.
      . WHEELS: Assembled with Weinmann aluminum alloy rims on Campagnolo Record large flange road hubs. The spokes are .080-.060 gauge and are chrome plated. The hubs are equipped with a quick release machanism allowing the wheels to be removed without the use of tools.
      . TIRES: Standard equipment tires are wired-on high pressure 27" x 1-1/4" tires.
      . HANDLEBAR: Cinelli aluminum alloy drop style handlebars with Maes style road racing bend.
      . CRANK SET: The P15 Paramount is equipped with a triple plateau Campagnolo Nouvo Record crank set. This crank is a three-piece aluminum alloy crank set with 170MM (6-3/4") crank arms. The chainwheels are of aluminum alloy also and have 36, 49 and 54 teeth.
      . PEDALS: Campagnolo pedals with Christophe toe clips and Alfredo Binda toe straps.
      . SADDLE: Brooks Professional all-leather saddle. All leather saddles used on Paramount models are "broken-in" at the Schwinn factory.
      . DERAILLEURS AND FREEWHEEL: Campagnolo Gran Turismo rear derailleur and Campagnolo Record front derailleur. The derailleurs are operated from shifting levers located on the bottom bar. The freewheel has sprockets of 14, 16, 19, 25 and 31 teeth.
      . GEAR RANGE: The gear range is 31 to 104
      . TOOLS: Included is a tool kit containing Campagnolo tools for disassembling and adjusting the crank set, for adjusting the saddle and seat post and for adjusting the derailleurs.
      . COLORS: Paramount models are available in your choice of all Schwinn colors or all chrome finish.
      . WEIGHT: 25 pounds. Weight will vary depending on frame size, options and accessories.
      . USE AND PURPOSE: The P15 Deluxe Paramount is primarily intended for general touring. The very broad gear range makes the P15 especially suited for touring in hilly or mountainous terrain. In addition, the frame stays and bridges are designed to accomodate touring equipment such as clincher (wired-on) tires and fenders. The frame construction and the use of broad range derailleurs also make the use of Campagnolo fingertip controls and Campagnolo brakes impractical on the P15 Deluxe Paramount.
