Serotta Colorado Legend TI55L00216

Hi, I have a Colorado Legend TI , frame number TI55L00216, and i would like to find out which year it was manufactured.
With my Investigation here in this thread, I found out, that is has to be made before 1997.
Can anyone help?

That would be great.

Many Greetings from Germany

Tobias

My guess is that is it from 1994. The ones from '95 on had a seatpost clamp rather than a bolt like yours has. The Ti frames pictured in the '94 catalog have the seatpost bolt like yours. BTW, Serotta's were always a little fluid with the models they had available for each year, and not like the bigger bike manufacturers that had distinct model configurations each year. So it can be difficult to determine exactly which year a bike was built.

However, I can tell you that this was the 216th "Ti" frame built.

BTW, that's a great looking bike. I like the Time fork on there.

Tobias, that's a 1993, the first year for Titanium Serottas. In 1994 the model name changed to Colorado Ti. 1993 is the easiest year to identify any Serotta model, as they all had "Legend" in the name. Great looking bike. Thanks for posting, as we now know that at least 216 Ti frames were made in the first year of production.

Wow, thanks for the answer, didnĀ“t thought that it was that early.
The frame looks absolutely timeless.

best regards

Tobias
