Hey, I said a little better. Schwinn’s new 2011 Madison is getting there. I like the red version better than the purple and gold. In fact, when I first saw the red color, I thought it was a Specialized Langster. Can’t go wrong with a single-color, all-silver build. But still, someone needs to help Schwinn out.

I’d be all for a nicely-lugged Paramount re-issue. Stick to the classics, not the trends.
