FS: Serotta Legend Ti, 57 cm

FS: Serotta Legend Ti 57 ST, 57 TT


With original stem/fork

Very good condition, has been ridden very little by both me and the original owner. Medical professionals have told me to avoid excessive repetitive motions on my knees.

As many of you undoubtedly know, Ben Serotta took greats pains to create the perfect titanium bike no matter the price, and ordered customized tubing for this frame, including widened main triangle tubing, flared seat stays, and curved chain stays.

Let me know if you need more details on model/sizing of components:
Full 2012 sram rival group
H+Son rims
Thompson seat post and stem
Ritchey evo curve bar
Nashbar carbon fork

I’m keeping seat/pedals.

New Price: $1600 or best offer.

Complete bike, very limited interest in piecing out.

Based in NYC, but will ship at buyer's cost.

I'll be most responsive at aagoldberg@gmail.com

Best,
Andrew

I was a little overprotective of the frame when I bought it and wrapped a tube around the area to protect it from chain suck. MTBer habits.

Good luck with your sale! The used bike market is pretty good for buyers right now. A good place to start might be a quick search of our classifieds to see other legend's, with a 1" headtube, asking prices, and eBay completed listings.

I don't know enough about the parts to say a price, nor do I think it exactly appropriate to start speculating in your for sale thread on the going rate of your bike without you having asked outright. I do get the sense that you're comment about being out of the bike game suggests you wouldn't mind hearing the forum's input on price, but maybe you only want that from potential buyers.

What I will say, without a doubt, is Serotta makes a good ride and somebody sure will enjoy it! Oh and a frame size in the title of your thread.

Not too cool making statements like that on somebody's post.

One may safely nudge a seller by showing
comps and saying GLWS
but to express disbelief is no cool
So I will say
GLWTS!💥

First year (1993) Legend Ti. Likely came with an AL fork. Too small for me but I'd be interested in the serial number. Might provide a clue to first year production.

Serial on bottom of bb: L00341

The red fork in the above picture was indeed aluminum. It has a fairly dangerous reputation, so I left it with someone who could enjoy it more as a collector piece.

I had one just like this in the same size but the fork mine came with was a red Kestrel fork. It had a slightly flexible BB under load but had a great ride overall.

Interesting, as the 1993 catalog says choice of AL or steel fork. 1994 catalog does list a "composite" fork option. No mention of brand.

If I remember correctly, the aluminum red fork above said "kinesis" somewhere.
