Subject: [CR]seen the new Paramounts?

Hi gang, I was at the LBS tonight, and got a look at a new Paramount frame. Pretty spiffy, and definitely in the CR spirit! Built from 853 tubing, and using some lugs that appear to be inspired by the Nervex Pro's. The shop owner tells me that it is built by Tim Issac (sp?). Besides the lovely construction, it sports the Classic style Schwinn logo in a white panel on the downtube. Ought to be a nice frame! I think the owner said it retails for about $800. Darn nice to see Schwinn taking a chance on something other than TIG'ed frames!

Anyone else seen these? Any opinions?
