Pick up a very nice very clean Serotta CTI. It’s got to be a 1997 but maybe seeing the serial number some one just give me some more info

CT 54 31

Thanks

I am not sure what the first year for a CTi was, as I have never seen a 1997 catalog. There is a geometry chart and description in the 1998 catalog.

Greetings all!
 
Greetings everyone. I ended up purchasing a Legend Ti used at a local bike shop but the serial number doesn't seem to correspond to how models of that type are shown in the list at the beginning of the thread here for the model I have which is in a very clean condition. No idea as to how old but it could pass for new in some respects.

The serial would seem to indicate it was a Concours but isn't painted that way.
It's painted as a Legend TI.

Serial: CTI 49 5077.

So does the C notate custom? Any idea as to the year this was made?

I don't know who the former owner was (they discussed the former owner not getting along with drop bars so had the bar replaced with a Ritchey carbon flat bar and Tiagra shifters/braker levers) but my middle aged guy body mirrors their dimensions it seems in terms of height and arm and leg length.

Yours is a custom Legend Ti, 5077th made of this model. You’ll have to read through this thread to find other Legend Ti with serial numbers and years attached to extrapolate the year of your bike.

Thank you Dave. Enjoying it quite a bit. I never thought I'd be able to get/afford one of these and was in the right place at the right time with the right price and am thrilled to bits.

There is a thread in General Discussion about Legend serial numbers and years. One of the first posts says that Legend serial numbers were in the low 5000s in the summer of 2004.

That is odd.
I would have guessed it was made as they transitioned from 1993 model names (AT) to 1994 names (ATX) but surely not the case with serial number 007. Perhaps they decided early in 1993 that naming every bike in the line Colorado Legend XXX wasn't such a great idea. I have seen Colorado Legend CRs and CRLs, but don't recall every seeing a mountain bike with Colorado Legend decals, except in the catalog.
