My New Ridecincy1
Mar 19, 2003 4:14 PM
This elegant steed is my new Serotta Legend Ti. My first ride last weekend was an epiphany. I never thougth a bike could be this comfortable and smooth. Stiff when it needs to be, it accelerates faster than I can. I'm inspired to ride. Isn't that what this is all about?

Beware the "stem Nazi's", they won't like your riser stem! (Personally, I don't care-I have one, too.) BTW-I shudder to think what that baby cost.......She looks great, though. Enjoy!
I see you chose the inexpensive route...Nice bike...nmchopper

You'll need another new bike to be inspired to ride.
I don't think I could ride one.sievers11

A bike like that is ment for a collection next to one of coppi's celeste machines and a super record GL.

Apparently some people are jealous and feel the need to slag. Oh, well. Don't let them get you down. Congratulations on buying your dream bike.
Don't get slag confused with jealous sarcasm.sievers11

Is that a custom frame?????Lazywriter
Mar 19, 2003 4:57 PM
I like the bike, but the dimensions seem a little off.

How are the dimensions off?

Just curious.

(first let me say that it is gorgeous, from one of the great ti builders and painters, so no flame here)

anyway, my query about whether it is custom geometry was influenced by the need for the setback seatpost. I would have expected longer effective TT, with a little slope, to achieve the saddle/bar positions there.

But it is a beaut.

It doesn't look off to me, the curved seat stays create an optical illusion. It does appear to have a tight wheel base, but that is far from odd. Also going -10 degrees instead of +10 degrees would make it "look" alittle more normal, if normal is a show room.

The guy is actually ridding this thing.
C'mon now, if that were aLazywriter

stock frame, there would be many of your guys saying that it is too big, with too little seatpost showing and too many spacers. For a custom frame, it seems off to me. I never seen a Serotta built up like that.
That picture above is a $7,000 road bike, dudes...timster

Lazywriter, mayber he should have bought a Huffy, errrr...
Litespeed.

Respect the bike, Lazy. If you are jealous of the bike, then just buy it, and throw your Huffy up in a garage sale this Saturday...

Don't hate the player, hate the game, Lazy...

Why would I be jealous???? I was contemplating a Legend Ti for some time and was looking at one the other day in another LBS. It is a great bike, but from the picture of the above bike, it looks nothing like any custom Serotta I ever seen and I have seen many.
My Vortex frame was more than a custom Serotta (retail) so $ wasn't an issue for me. You watch too much Ricki Lake with all your "player hating" talk. You are a retard.
I'd take this "Huffy" any day.Lazywriter
Mar 19, 2003 8:29 PM
Hey, I just got a huge raise and am gonna sell my bike and get a new one. Do you want this one? Or it isn't good enough for you. BTW your Serotta is beyond boring.
Did your spelling prowess earn you that "huge raise"?serbski

You sir, are a hopeless WANKER...

and you are a raging douchebag. And your mother is a fetted whore.

Lazywriter. That was not nice.

Apologize. That was kind of rude.

Is that the best you can come up with?
Guess you are a lazy bastard.
Post a picture of your bike, if mine is so boring.
I would like to see a Huffy.

I like Huffy bikes.
I really do.

Lazywriter, you cut-and-paste, google bastard...spankdoggie
Mar 19, 2003 10:06 PM
Post that Huffy Litespeed again.

Your bike pictures, Lazy are always good for a laugh before bedtime...

Lazywriter: did you mean *FETID*? rather than "fetted"...serbski
Mar 20, 2003 4:35 PM
...which, as far as I know, is not a word. There is, however, the VERB "feted" (spelled with a single "t") which would not make sense if used in the expression "feted whore". I am shocked if you have indeed made such a gross error here considering that you seem to live and die by spelling and proper word usage. Where is that high-powered editor girlfriend of yours or would she find your posting too offensive and juvenile to warrant a proofread? Or did you suddenly have "better options" and ditch her? By the way, my "fetted whore" mother has been dead since I '92 so I take it you knew her back then?
Is that a custom frame?????cincy1
Mar 20, 2003 4:19 AM
Yes. The custom geometry helped fit my long thighs and short torso to the frame. The result is a balanced position that feels powerful and comfortable.

I took this picture on a roadie loop near the ocean here in San Francisco with my Serotta. Nice Serotta Ti man!

A Serotta is meant for the road.
Very nice!PaulCL
Mar 19, 2003 6:27 PM
So, Cincy1, do you live in Cincinnati???
Very nice!cincy1
Mar 20, 2003 4:16 AM
Yes. I bought the Serotta at Oakley Cycles.
I'll look for you on the roadPaulCL

I live in N'thn KY. I don't often cross the river, but if you're ever in the south, look for a red haired guy on an art decor Colnago with yellow vittoria's. Take the opportunity to pull up and show off your new ride!

Paul,

My wife and I ride Rt. 8 to Augusta periodically on weekends during the season. I'll keep a lookout.

I often head out from my home in Edgewood toward Augusta/Minerva area down rte 177 to rte 10. I've never taken rte 8 in Campbell county. Is it a busy road?? Hilly??

Stiff when it needs to be, it accelerates faster than I can. I'm inspired to ride. Isn't that what this is all about?

Absolutely! Too bad it costs $$$ to arrive at that conclusion.
P.S.Fez
Mar 20, 2003 6:47 AM
It is a nice bike. Very nice looking... despite what everyone else says. I kind of like the black look. The only silver that catches my eye is the rim braking surface.

Looks like a Thomson post. What kind of stem are you using?
P.S.cincy1
Mar 20, 2003 8:51 AM
WCS stem and bars.

Nice ride Cincy! Don't let the others get you donw on the cost, if you've got the $$$, I can't think of a better activity to spend it on than cycling!
