That Ottrott with the DKS suspension has to be one rare bird! First I have ever seen, but that pricing is certainly optimistic!

1988 Davidson Discovery steel sport touring frameset - 58cm - $375

(I asked Robert Freeman of Davidson about verifying maximum tire size and he sent this, "Designed for 32 without fenders or 28 with.


Robert D Freeman
North Bend WA''
Built by American custom framebuilder Bill Davidson in Seattle, WA:

http://www.davidsonbicycles.com/

58cm center-to-center seat tube
57cm center-to-center top tube (top tube is traditional horizontal, not sloping)
168mm head tube
44cm chainstays

Frame is in very good condition and ready to be built. Includes recently serviced Campagnolo (Athena?) headset. Room for 700x32c tires or 700x28c with fenders. May be able to take up to 700x35c without fenders and 700x30c with fenders, but it would be a tight fit. Eyelets for fenders/racks. Rack braze-ons on seat stays and fender braze-on on chainstay bridge. Top tube internal rear brake cable routing was added in the mid-90s by a previous owner, and the frame was repainted then. They mistakenly added an “Impulse” decal which was the production race model at the time.

The frame rides nicely. It tracks straight, is very stable with direct steering in all conditions including descents, and spins up faster than other sport touring frames I’ve ridden in the past. It is not flexy at all and stays well composed when riding out of the saddle. I didn’t experience any ghost shifting or FD rub when out of the saddle, which is impressive for a skinny tubed steel frame with 44cm chainstays. I imagine it would remain very composed if you plan to load it with some weight in the back as well.

Paint is in good condition with no rust, but there are various areas with touch-ups. I tried to show most of them in the photos. No dents, dings or damage of any other kind.

Feel free to contact me with questions.

Some more specs:
https://newjersey.craigslist.org/bik...271684297.html
Spacing: 100mm front, 130mm rear
English bottom bracket threading: 1.37x24 tpi
27.2 seatpost
28.6 front derailleur clamp size
Standard 22.2 quill stem, 1” threaded steerer
Under BB derailleur cable routing
Long horizontal rear dropouts
Pump peg on headtube
2 pairs water bottle bosses
Downtube shifter bosses
Recessed brake mounting (though front may require some widening depending on your components)
Requires medium reach brakes (I used 47mm-57mm)
F/F/HS weigh 6.70 lbs on my hanging scale

There's 2 mirrors, hello, so it's only $1k per mirror. That's much more reasonable. [emoji6]

52cm Serotta Colorado 2: top end build in hard to find size! - $850
Legendary Serotta brand. Extremely lightweight & comfortable US-made steel frame with excellent componentry. Super difficult to find a build this good for shorter folks!

Campy/Dura Ace throughout. Selling from the stable of a former pro bike mechanic.

RE: Ottrot/DKS
 
Seller responded with measurements:

"Top tube is 22.5” and head tube is 7.25” Thanks for your interest!"

I asked for head tube measurement, between the cups. TT number is center to center so virtual TT is a bit more than the above.

If it weren't for Covid, I might ask my Mother-In-Law to take a little drive.

yea, the reality is that even though they are superbly nice bikes, and certainly were for the time, a lot of owners really paid insane amounts for new bikes from serotta. >10 - 12 tousand bucks in the early 2000's for a road bike is insane, and i'm sure those owners really cant wrap their heads around letting a bike go they paid 12k for a couple grand.

that's the market though, and serotta is gone far enough now to have slipped from memory. a lot of that value is simply gone.

A bit more reasonably priced than others that I’ve seen recently. 1996 Atlanta in Temecula for $900. Looks pretty clean from the pictures.

I don’t know....there are a few Serotta collectors out there that might go that high. It’s rare, nice color combo, very good condition. They still ride fantastic although my guess buyer will not be riding it for just the ride. I’d take this over any new $4k bike if I were choosing, but I’m an oddball. May take a while but when someone wants it, there are not many out there - just have to be willing to hold for a while. My last Ottrott sold for about $3k and was half the bike this one is!
