Well jeepers ! I thought maybe they might have been an option for a little while .

But , that was just me thinkin' agin . I keep trying not to . I know it only gets me into trouble when I do it .

:^)

I guess I got confused by that odd period of time ( c. 1960 - 1964 ? ) when Paramounts came with chrome-plated Stronglight cottered steel cranksets , steel stems from Titan , aluminum handlebars from Titan , and aluminium seat-posts ( seat-pillars ) from Reynolds ( of England ) .

It was all kinda confusing for me .

I hang my head in shame .

Weinmann Forever !!

Please don't revoke my membership in the International Weinmann Appreciation Society ( I. W.A.S. ) .

I promise to try harder to do better .

Happy Cycling ,
Raoul
