CSi roll call...post your serial numbers

The thread on decoding serial numbers got me thinking about the serial numbers for the CSi and I was curious to see what collection of them we have from the forum members. So post your serial numbers along with the date your CSi was built. Of course pictures of your CSi would be a bonus.

I have two:
o '95/'96 stock - CS 54L 272
o '04 custom fillet brazed with sloping top tube - CCS 55.5 2314

Here's some older pictures of mine and both bikes have had some changes since these were taken...

Fine, make me feel like an underachiever. I wonder if the "he has more csi's than me" argument will work with my wife...

This CSI is no help but I am going to post it anyway.

2005 Kelly Bedford CSI
62 cm st with 1 degree slope
58.5 cm tt

I don't think it has a serial number; it is in Seattle boxed to be shipped to AZ for the winter and I will check again when I open it.

1996-97 Csi

My CSI was ordered in late 1996 and I took delivery of the frame and F1 fork in January 1997. The serial number is CS-56-808. It's a 56 x 56 stock frame.

As an additional note that goes along with the broken seat lug thread, mine broke in late 2008. Serotta repaired the frame and repainted it. I took delivery in May 2009. The attached pix are of a previous paint job, after I had Serotta replace the top tube cable stops and repaint in early 2007.

http://forums.thepaceline.net/showth...&highlight=csi

During the original repair/repaint, it was discovered that the original F1 fork had developed a slightly loose dropout. Serotta replaced that fork with an Ouzo Pro at no extra charge. The color was slightly darker than the original Midnight Blue. The current color is closer to the original-- seen in this thread, not built up.

My CSI going ashore in Port Angeles, WA. for an attempt on Hurricane Ridge.
This is 1997 vintage, bought from a forum member about seven years ago.
It has been ridden up and down both coasts and as far east as Singapore.
It presently resides in New Hampshire and will be receiving a group upgrade to used but good Record 10.

Man if you could read the logo that would be a photo for the catalog. Great picture.

The original picture has much better resolution than the one that fits the forum requirements. My photo shopping is about 1st grade level and this is the result.

Gothard -- You certainly have two special CSi's. Do you have the serial numbers for them? BTW, have you built up your 20th anniversary CSi yet?

The question is does the ship have a bike path while at sea. All kikdding aside,
best picture of bike in action to date.

On a serious note, what if any exra precation do you take from exposing it to all that salt air

KEITH, A question for you as well, which CSI do you prefer, the sloper or non sloper.

Good question. I personally don't feel that the sloping geometry makes that much difference in the way the bike rides. About the only time I notice this is when the top tube brushes against my leg and it hits in a different location.

The '96 has standard stock geometry which happens to work really well for me and the '04 was a custom (but not for me). They both ride very nicely and I enjoy being on them as much as I do my high carbons (Time VXR and Colnago C-50). If I had to choose between the two, it would be the '96. I'm not sure how to describe it, but I feel more connected when riding this bike than any other one I own. The fit is spot on and it handles superbly...it's a keeper.
