what's a good price for this Serotta? 2001 Rapid Tour...JS Haiku Shop

2001 Serotta Rapid Tour, (supposedly lugged) steel frame, full ultegra w/triple, almost brand-new condition, 1300 miles on the bike. I know the guy and he babied this one.

I've been looking for a good all-arounder for winter rides, trainer sessions, hilly centuries+, and that could double as a cross bike. Is this it? It can fit 35 mm tires with full fenders!

It's my size...what would be a good price? What would be a steal? It was purchased for $2400 retail, new.


I'll pay $1.00 more than you.Len J

If it's lugged, than its value is closer to the CSI than the Colorado. I'd probably pay $1,500 if it was in good shape, maybe a little more.

A search on ebay gives the following.

Also, may want to post the same question on the serotta message board.

yep, i checked ebay first...JS Haiku Shop

but it's hard to get a bearing from active (and completed) auctions, as they are serotta, but not directly associated with the touring bike.

thanks for the serotta link. i'll check there next.


ps. sounds like it's not a deal, after all. it's a steal.

How custom was it?Len J

That does sound like the perfect all-arounder. I'm beginning to think that a bike like that may be the best bike for someone like me that does tours, centuries and fast training rides but doesn't race.

Let me know how you like it.

off the rack. and, i have a fixation for lugs. :) (nm)JS Haiku Shop

Two sets of wheels, one for loads with a 12-27, one for routine riding with a 12-23 and a triple and I can do all the things you mention very comfortably.
