The Red White & Blue CSi

Here's a quick picture of my CSi that was posted on the other forum gallery. It's just a little different from that picture with a different wheelset. This is a stock 54L from '96 or so with complete 9-speed Dura-Ace . I bought this back in '99 and didn't know much about Serotta's other than a friend who works at a LBS said they were good bikes -- I thought okay and bought it. One of the best decisions I have made.

Enjoy.

Thanks for the comments. I really do like this paint scheme, the only thing I would like differently is if the "Serotta" on the downtube was blue (or possibly red) instead of the just the outline.

I would guess a 0 rise stem with maybe 3 cm or spacers?

va_rider is correct about the stem angle, it is 90 or 0 with an 11cm extension. I'm not sure on the spacers and will have to measure this one. At first, I didn't like the 90 stems, but now that I've used one for a while the traditional 73 stems seem a bit odd to me.

c'est magnifique

Had that saddle on my Bianchi Axis, during a cyclocross in third at the time (my best) the seat came off the rails I didn't know it untill I sat down after a technical section. was somewhat uncomfortable to say the least. God I was tired of standing by the end of that race.

Wow...what a badass...I just quit a cross race when something goes wrong. No running to the pit for me.

This saddle has been replaced with an Arione. For me the Pave was a good saddle, but the Arione is better.

I remember that bike, great looking ride. I'd replace bar tape with plain black and put on a cinelli R1 or A1 and it would be perfection.
